Kronos - NTP plugin for Flutter
Unlike the device clock, the time reported by Kronos is unaffected when the local time is changed while your app is running. Instead, Kronos stores accurate time along with a delta between the NTP time and the system uptime. Since uptime increases monotonically, Kronos isn't affected by device time changes. Accessing
KronosClock.getCurrentTimeMs() will return the local time based on the last known accurate time + delta since last sync.
Since it relies on system uptime, Kronos detects and requires a new sync after each reboot.
flutter_kronos as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.
Add the following permission in your Android Manifest file:
Sync clock using a pool of NTP servers
FlutterKronos.sync will fire a bunch of NTP requests to up to 5 of the
servers on the given NTP pool. As soon as
we get the first response, the given closure is called but the
will keep trying to get a more accurate response.
Get an NTP time
int? FlutterKronos.getCurrentTimeMs(); //return time from the fallback clock if Kronos has not yet been synced
int? FlutterKronos.getCurrentNtpTimeMs(); //return null if Kronos has not yet been synced
DateTime? FlutterKronos.getDateTime(); //return null if Kronos has not yet been synced
DateTime? FlutterKronos.getNtpDateTime(); //return null if Kronos has not yet been synced
