Flyer Chat is a platform for creating in-app chat experiences using Flutter or React Native. This repository contains Firebase BaaS implementation for Flutter. We are also working on our more advanced SaaS and self-hosted solutions.

  • Free, open-source and community-driven. We offer no paid plugins and strive to create an easy-to-use, almost drop-in chat experience for any application. Contributions are more than welcome! Please read our Contributing Guide.

  • Chat UI agnostic. You can choose the chat UI you prefer. But if you don't have one, we provide our own free and open-source Flutter Chat UI, which can be used to create a working chat in minutes.

  • Easy to use. Returns streams of data for messages, rooms and users. Firebase Security Rules control access to the data. Check our documentation for the info.

Getting Started

Requirements

Dart >=2.17.0 and Flutter >=2.0.0, Firebase project.

After all of this is done you will need to register a couple of users and the example app will automatically suggest email and password on the register screen, default password is Qawsed1-.
