Pub Codemagic build status

Flutter wrapper for Intercom Android and iOS projects.

Usage

Import package:intercom_flutter/intercom_flutter.dart and use the methods in Intercom class.

Example:

import 'package:intercom_flutter/intercom_flutter.dart';

void main() async {
    await Intercom.initialize('appIdHere', iosApiKey: 'iosKeyHere', androidApiKey: 'androidKeyHere');
    runApp(App());
}

class App extends StatelessWidget {

    @override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        return FlatButton(
            child: Text('Open Intercom'),
            onPressed: () async {
                await Intercom.displayMessenger();
            },
        );
    }
}

See Intercom Android and iOS package documentation for more information.

Android

Permissions:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

Optional permissions:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>

Enable AndroidX + Jetifier support in your android/gradle.properties file (see example app):

android.useAndroidX=true
android.enableJetifier=true

Push notifications in combination with FCM

This plugin works in combination with the firebase_messaging plugin to receive Push Notifications. To set this up:

    <service
        android:name="io.maido.intercom.PushInterceptService"
        android:enabled="true"
        android:exported="true">
        <intent-filter>
          <action android:name="com.google.firebase.MESSAGING_EVENT" />
        </intent-filter>
    </service>

just above the closing </application> tag.

  • Ask FireBaseMessaging for the FCM token that we need to send to Intercom, and give it to Intercom (so Intercam can send push messages to the correct device):
final FirebaseMessaging _firebaseMessaging = FirebaseMessaging();
token = await _firebaseMessaging.getToken();

Intercom.sendTokenToIntercom(token);

Now, if either FireBase direct (e.g. by your own backend server) or Intercom sends you a message, it will be delivered your Android phone.

Firebase Background Messages

If you are handling background messages in firebase_messaging you need to do some extra work for everything to work together:

  1. Remove the above mentioned <service android:name="io.maido.intercom.PushInterceptService" ... from your AndroidManifest.xml.
  2. In your background messages handler, pass the relevant messages to Intercom:
import 'package:intercom_flutter/intercom_flutter.dart' show Intercom;

Future<dynamic> backgroundMessageHandler(Map<String, dynamic> message) async {
    final data = (message['data'] as Map).cast<String, dynamic>();

    if (await Intercom.isIntercomPush(data)) {
        await Intercom.handlePush(data);
        return;
    }

    // Here you can handle your own background messages
}

iOS

Make sure that you have a NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription entry in your Info.plist.
