flutter_freshchat

A copy of https://github.com/fayeed/flutter_freshchat I forked initially but our project needs to target lower versions of Android. This version has camera capture disabled which fits our needs.

To use the ios version of the plugin it is necessary to add a FCTheme_New.plist insdie the runner using Xcode. The example app uses the same theme as the official freshchat ios sdk. https://github.com/freshdesk/freshchat-ios/blob/master/FreshchatSDK/FCResources.bundle/Themes/FCTheme.plist

Our IOS implementation was done in objective c instead of swift.
