Android only feature

Getting Started

What you need to include in your project to start working:

  • Open your AndroidManifest.xml and add inside application tag:

      <service
          android:name="com.adriankohls.bubble_overlay.BubbleOverlayService"
          android:enabled="true"
          android:exported="false" />
    

And add this permissions at manifest top level:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />

Create a local variable in your dart file:

    final BubbleOverlay bubbleOverlay = BubbleOverlay();
    bubbleOverlay.openBubble();

The first time you call openBubble(), it will request Android overlay permission

After granting permission, call it again, and it will open the bubble

More details you can find in example/lib/main.dart

How it works

BubbleOverlayPlugin.kt: Make the 'talk' with Dart/Flutter with native Android OS, connect the OS with the Service, etc.

BubbleOverlayService.kt Updates Bubble data, all bubble data is parsed from XML file (layout_bubble.xml), as developing a native app for Android with XML
