WhatsApp Stickers plugin for Flutter

Note: This plugin is still under development and for now there is only support for Android. Feedback and Pull Requests welcome!

Getting Started

Add flutter_whatsapp_stickers as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

This project is a starting point for a Flutter plug-in package, a specialized package that includes platform-specific implementation code for Android and/or iOS.

Android the following to your app's gradle file

android {
    aaptOptions {
        noCompress "webp"

If you are using assets that are not bundled in your build, then you need to add the following to your Manifest file. Note that you cannot use both. It's either non assets or you should package the stickers in the app.

<meta-data android:name="NonAssetContentProvider" android:value="true" />

Here is an example of how to create a custom stickers_packs.json file.

void createLocalFile() async {
  String dir = (await getApplicationDocumentsDirectory()).path;
  Directory stickersDirectory = Directory("$dir/sticker_packs");
  if (!await stickersDirectory.exists()) {
    await stickersDirectory.create();

  File jsonFile = File('$dir/sticker_packs/sticker_packs.json');
  String content = jsonEncode(stickerPacks);


Check if WhatsApp is installed.

bool whatsAppInstalled = await WhatsAppStickers.isWhatsAppInstalled;

Check if WhatsApp consumer app is installed

bool whatsAppConsumerAppInstalled = await WhatsAppStickers.isWhatsAppConsumerAppInstalled;

Check if WhatsApp business app is installed

bool whatsAppSmbAppInstalled = await WhatsAppStickers.isWhatsAppSmbAppInstalled;

Check if is a sticker pack is installed.

_stickerPackInstalled = await WhatsAppStickers().isStickerPackInstalled(_stickerPackIdentifier);

Add a sticker pack to WhatsApp

  packageName: WhatsAppStickers.consumerWhatsAppPackageName,
  stickerPackIdentifier: _stickerPackIdentifier,
  stickerPackName: _stickerPackName,
