GrowthBook SDK for flutter.

Overview

GrowthBook is an open source feature flagging and experimentation platform that makes it easy to adjust what features are shown users, and run A/B tests, without deploying new code. There are two parts to GrowthBook, the GrowthBook Application, and the SDKs which implement this functionality to your code base. This Flutter SDK allows you to use GrowthBook with your Flutter based mobile application.

  • Lightweight and fast
  • Supports
    • Android
    • iOS
    • Mac
    • Windows
  • Use your existing event tracking (GA, Segment, Mixpanel, custom)
  • Adjust variation weights and targeting without deploying new code

Installation

  1. Add GrowthBook SDK as dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.
growthbook_sdk_flutter: ^latest-version

Integration

Integration is super easy:

  1. Create a GrowthBook API key from the GrowthBook App.
  2. Initialize the SDK at the start of your app using the API key, as below.

Now you can start/stop tests, adjust coverage and variation weights, and apply a winning variation to 100% of traffic, all within the Growth Book App without deploying code changes to your site.

final GrowthBookSDK sdkInstance = await GBSDKBuilderApp(
  apiKey: "<API_KEY>",
  attributes: {
    /// Specify attributes.
  },
  growthBookTrackingCallBack: (gbExperiment, gbExperimentResult) {},
  hostURL: '<GrowthBook_URL>',
  apiKey: '<YOUR API KEY>'
).initialize();

There are additional properties which can be setup at the time of initialization

    final GrowthBookSDK newSdkInstance =await GBSDKBuilderApp(
    apiKey: "<API_KEY>",
    attributes: {
     /// Specify user attributes.
    },
    client: NetworkClient(), // Provide network dispatcher.
    growthBookTrackingCallBack: (gbExperiment, gbExperimentResult) {},
    hostURL: '<GrowthBook_URL>',
    forcedVariations: {} // Optional provide force variation.
    qaMode: true, // Set qamode
).initialize();

Usage

  • Initialization returns SDK instance - GrowthBookSDK

    Use sdkInstance to consume below features -
  • The feature method takes a single string argument, which is the unique identifier for the feature and returns a FeatureResult object.

      GBFeatureResult feature(String id) 
    
  • The run method takes an Experiment object and returns an ExperimentResult

    GBExperimentResult run(GBExperiment experiment)   
  • Get Context
    GBContext getGBContext()
  • Get Features
    GBFeatures getFeatures()
