custom_ping

This is a simple way to check your internet connection.

Why CustomPing

There are other solutions that try the same goal but with some difficulties on each one. For example connectivity checks if the device is connected to a network but don't check if is able to navigate with this network. Other package go further checking internet with a ping test, and this is a good solution but is partially incomplete. with limited data plans like the social media bundles you can ping to google but this ping is not a guaranty that you can navigate to google.

Our solutions is call a get to the target url or by default o google, this get in a optimal conditions take 150ms average. But as always working with networks is complicated and a positive answer for the CustomPing is only telling you that in the moment of the test the device have internet. but always you need to wrap your calls with try/catch to handle a proper error from backend

Getting Started

We recommend to provide the PingService via get_it or something similar wherever you need to monitor the internet connection Stream Subscription:

PingService().getSubscription(callBack: (e) {
       setState(() {
         pingCount++;
         service =
             'Ping has connection ${e.hasConnection}, with ${e.getNetworkTye} count: $pingCount';
       });
     });

Single call:

PingService().pingTick();
