Flutter Cache Image

pub package

A Flutter plugin to load and cache network or firebase storage images with a retry mechanism if the download fails.

This package supports the download of images from a standard network path and from a firebase storage gs path.

Images are stored in the temporary directory of the app.


To use this plugin, add firebase_storage as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

  cache_image: "^1.0.5"

Import cache_image in a dart file:

import 'package:cache_image/cache_image.dart';

To support firebase storage download the generated google-services.json file and place it inside android/app. Next, modify the android/build.gradle file and the android/app/build.gradle file to add the Google services plugin as described by the Firebase assistant.
