GitHub Snitch

GitHub Snitch is a Flutter package that helps you report bugs and issues on GitHub automatically. It can also be used to submit comments on existing issues. demo for testing :


  • Report bugs on GitHub issues with specific labels, assignees, and milestones
    • Automatically when calling the listenToExceptions method in main as shown in the example
    • Manually with the report method
  • Support offline cases (save locally and send later when a connection exists)
  • Get reported issues with all comments
  • Submit comments from the user and reply from GitHub issues by repository owners
  • Include screenshots in the report for better issue clarification.
  • Handled duplicated reports by added comment (+1) for duplicate issues
  • Create follow labels for package
    • GhSnitch-external for Errors not caught by Flutter Framework
      • GhSnitch-internal for Errors caught by Flutter Framework
    • Reported by GhSnitch Package for knowing which issues are reported from this package

Upcoming features

  • Support notifications for chat with user and repository owners



Is preferable to use empty repo for reporting issues & bugs then transfer important items to main repo


For send screenshot to user from issue comment use some website for upload image and add link to comment, don't use screenshot from github repo because it will not work


You can use ready screens by call GhSnitch.openReportScreen(context); or build ypu screens and use methods like & GhSnitch.submitComment to submit issues & comments


Create branch for upload screenshots with name screenshots or any name you want but you need to pass this name to screenShotBranch parameter in method if you used GhSnitch.openReportScreen(context); you should use screenshots name

Getting Started

After install package you need to generate fine-grained personal access token choose fine-grained personal access token & select your repo & from Repository permissions check Issues Access: Read and write.

We need also owner username & repo name

We will use Environment variables for save this sensive keys


For run or build app just pass --dart-define for every key as example :

flutter build apk --split-per-abi --dart-define owner=owner --dart-define repo=repo --dart-define token=token

Then Add this code before runApp method As you see we used keys from Environment

  const String owner = String.fromEnvironment('owner');
  String appFlavor = 'x';
  String appVersion = '2.0.0';
      owner: owner,
      token: const String.fromEnvironment('token'),
      repo: const String.fromEnvironment("repo"));
  if (kReleaseMode) {
    // For report exceptions & bugs Automaticlly
    GhSnitch.listenToExceptions(assignees: [owner], labels: [appFlavor, appVersion]);
  runApp(const MyApp());

Now that GitHub Snitch is initialized, you can start reporting bugs and issues. To do this, you can call the report method:
  title: '<issue-title>',
  body: '<issue-body>',
  screenShot: '<screenshot-url>',
  screenShotBranch: '<screenshot-branch>',
  labels: <List<String>?>,
  assignees: <List<String>?>,
  milestone: '<milestone> if null will create new milestone with app version name',
  userId: '<user-id if exist if not package will use deviceID>',

The report method takes the following parameters:

  • title: The title of the issue.
  • body: The body of the issue.
  • screenShot: The URL of the screenshot.
  • screenShotBranch: parameter specifies the branch of the repository where the screenshot will be saved.
  • labels: A list of labels for the issue.
  • assignees: A list of users to assign the issue to.
  • milestone: The milestone to associate the issue with.

Listening to Exceptions

GitHub Snitch can also be used to listen to exceptions and bugs. To do this, you can call the listenToExceptions method:

  assignees: <List<String>?>,
  milestone: <int?>,

The listenToExceptions method takes the following parameters:

  • assignees: A list of users to assign the issue to.
  • milestone: The milestone to associate the issue with.

When an exception or bug is detected, GitHub Snitch will automatically create an issue on GitHub.

Submitting Comments

GitHub Snitch can also be used to submit comments on existing issues. To do this, you can call the submitComment method:

  reportId: '<issue-id>',
  comment: '<comment-text>',

The submitComment method takes the following parameters:

  • reportId: The ID of the issue.
  • comment: The text of the comment.
