1. Installation

Depend on it

Run this command:

flutter pub add flutter_splash_screen

2. Plugin Configuration


Update the MainActivity.kt

Update the MainActivity.kt to use flutter_splash_screen via the following changes:

package org.devio.flutter.splashscreen.example

import android.os.Bundle
import io.flutter.embedding.android.FlutterActivity

import org.devio.flutter.splashscreen.SplashScreen // add

class MainActivity : FlutterActivity() {
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        // SplashScreen.show(this) 
        // or enable full screen
        SplashScreen.show(this, true)

Create launch_screen.xml file

Create a file called launch_screen.xml in app/src/main/res/layout (create the layout-folder if it doesn't exist). The contents of the file should be the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent"

    <ImageView android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="center|top" android:scaleType="centerCrop"
        android:src="@mipmap/launch_screen" />

Customize your launch screen by creating a launch_screen.png-file and placing it in an appropriate mipmap-folder. Android automatically scales drawable, so you do not necessarily need to provide images for all phone densities. You can create splash screens in the following folders:

  • mipmap-ldpi
  • mipmap-mdpi
  • mipmap-hdpi
  • mipmap-xhdpi
  • mipmap-xxhdpi
  • mipmap-xxxhdpi

Add a color called primary_dark in app/src/main/res/values/colors.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <color name="primary_dark">#000000</color>

Optional steps:

If you want the splash screen to be transparent, follow these steps.

Open android/app/src/main/res/values/styles.xml and add <item name="android:windowIsTranslucent">true</item> to the file. It should look like this:

    <!-- Base application theme. -->
    <style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
        <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
        <item name="android:windowIsTranslucent">true</item>

If you want to customize the color of the status bar when the splash screen is displayed:

Create android/app/src/main/res/values/colors.xml and add

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <color name="status_bar_color"><!-- Colour of your status bar here --></color>

Create a style definition for this in android/app/src/main/res/values/styles.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <style name="SplashScreenTheme" parent="SplashScreen_SplashTheme">
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/status_bar_color</item>

Change your show method to include your custom style:



Customize your splash screen via LaunchScreen.storyboard,
