Flutter Flutter Plugin for IntelliJ

Build Status

An IntelliJ plugin for Flutter development. Flutter is a multi-platform app SDK to help developers and designers build modern apps for iOS, Android and the web.


Fast development

Flutter's hot reload helps you quickly and easily experiment, build UIs, add features, and fix bugs faster. Experience sub-second reload times, without losing state, on emulators, simulators, and hardware for iOS and Android.

Make a change in your code, and your app is changed instantly.


A brief summary of the getting started guide:

  • install the Flutter SDK
  • run flutter doctor from the command line to verify your installation
  • ensure you have a supported IntelliJ development environment; either:
    • the latest stable version of IntelliJ, Community or Ultimate Edition (EAP versions are not always supported)
    • the latest stable version of Android Studio (note: Android Studio Canary versions are generally not supported)
  • open the plugin preferences
    • Preferences > Plugins on macOS, File > Settings > Plugins on Linux, select "Browse repositories…"
  • search for and install the 'Flutter' plugin
  • choose the option to restart IntelliJ
  • configure the Flutter SDK setting
    • Preferences on macOS, File>Settings on Linux, select Languages & Frameworks > Flutter, and set the path to the root of your flutter repo

Known issues

Please note the following known issues:

  • #601: IntelliJ will read the PATH variable just once on startup. Thus, if you change PATH later to include the Flutter SDK path, this will not have an affect in IntelliJ until you restart the IDE.
  • If you require network access to go through proxy settings, you will need to set the https_proxy variable in your environment as described in the pub docs. (See also: #2914.)

Dev Channel

If you like getting new features as soon as they've been added to the code then you might want to try out the dev channel. It is updated weekly with the latest contents from the "master" branch. It has minimal testing. Set up instructions are in the wiki's dev channel page.
