flutter_icon_switcher

Change your app icon at runtime!

Known issues

  • The plugin only works on Android, on iOS will work, but i'm working on it.
  • On Android if you try to run the app via cli, for example flutter run (or from the ide plugin), the app will not launch if the current enabled icon is not the default.

Installation

  1. Add to your pubpsec.yaml file under dependencies:
     flutter_icon_switcher:
       git:
         url: git://github.com/GioPan04/flutter_icon_switcher.git
    
  2. Run flutter pub get
  3. Update android/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml as follows:
     <application ...>
    
         <activity
             android:name=".MainActivity"
             android:launchMode="singleTop"
             android:theme="@style/LaunchTheme"
             android:configChanges="orientation|keyboardHidden|keyboard|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|locale|layoutDirection|fontScale|screenLayout|density|uiMode"
             android:hardwareAccelerated="true"
             android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustResize">
         </activity>
    
         <!-- The activity-alias are your alternatives icons and name of your app, the default one must be enabled (and the others disabled) and the name must be ".DEFAULT". All the names of your activity-alias' name must begin with a dot. -->
         <activity-alias
             android:label="Default"
             android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_2"
             android:name=".DEFAULT"
             android:enabled="true"
             android:targetActivity=".MainActivity">
    
             <meta-data
                 android:name="io.flutter.embedding.android.NormalTheme"
                 android:resource="@style/NormalTheme"
                 />
    
             <meta-data
                 android:name="io.flutter.embedding.android.SplashScreenDrawable"
                 android:resource="@drawable/launch_background"
                 />
    
             <intent-filter>
                 <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
             </intent-filter>
    
         </activity-alias>
    
         <activity-alias
             android:label="Blue"
             android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_3"
             android:name=".BLUE"
             android:enabled="false"
             android:targetActivity=".MainActivity">
    
             <meta-data
                 android:name="io.flutter.embedding.android.NormalTheme"
                 android:resource="@style/NormalTheme"
                 />
    
             <meta-data
                 android:name="io.flutter.embedding.android.SplashScreenDrawable"
                 android:resource="@drawable/launch_background"
                 />
    
             <intent-filter>
                 <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
             </intent-filter>
    
         </activity-alias>
     </application>
    
  4. In your app you can now use: (The name you pass in the method must be in the AndroidManifest.xml)
     FlutterIconSwitcher.updateIcon('BLUE');
    
  5. Enjoy!
