Description

Get the Version Name, Version Code and App ID on iOS and Android.

Android

Go to build.gradle and update:

defaultConfig {
  versionCode 1
  versionName "1.0"
  minSdkVersion 16
  testInstrumentationRunner "android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"
}

iOS

Already good to go.

How to Use

Get OS Version:

String platformVersion;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  platformVersion = await GetVersion.platformVersion;
} on PlatformException {
  platformVersion = 'Failed to get platform version.';
}

Get Version Name:

String projectVersion;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  projectVersion = await GetVersion.projectVersion;
} on PlatformException {
  projectVersion = 'Failed to get project version.';
}

Get Version Code:

String projectCode;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  projectCode = await GetVersion.projectCode;
} on PlatformException {
  projectCode = 'Failed to get build number.';
}

Get App ID:

String projectAppID;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  projectAppID = await GetVersion.appID;
} on PlatformException {
  projectAppID = 'Failed to get app ID.';
}

Get App Name:

String projectName;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  projectName = await GetVersion.appName;
} on PlatformException {
  projectName = 'Failed to get app name.';
}

Example

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
import 'package:get_version/get_version.dart';

void main() => runApp(new MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => new _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  String _platformVersion = 'Unknown';
  String _projectVersion = '';
  String _projectCode = '';
  String _projectAppID = '';
  String _projectName = '';

  @override
  initState() {
    super.initState();
    initPlatformState();
  }

  // Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
  initPlatformState() async {
    String platformVersion;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      platformVersion = await GetVersion.platformVersion;
    } on PlatformException {
      platformVersion = 'Failed to get platform version.';
    }

    String projectVersion;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      projectVersion = await GetVersion.projectVersion;
    } on PlatformException {
      projectVersion = 'Failed to get project version.';
    }

    String projectCode;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      projectCode = await GetVersion.projectCode;
    } on PlatformException {
      projectCode = 'Failed to get build number.';
    }

    String projectAppID;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      projectAppID = await GetVersion.appID;
    } on PlatformException {
      projectAppID = 'Failed to get app ID.';
    }
    
    String projectName;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      projectName = await GetVersion.appName;
    } on PlatformException {
      projectName = 'Failed to get app name.';
    }

    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted) return;

    setState(() {
      _platformVersion = platformVersion;
      _projectVersion = projectVersion;
      _projectCode = projectCode;
      _projectAppID = projectAppID;
      _projectName = projectName;
    });
  }
