Flutter

  • Add following dependency in pubspec.yaml.
dependencies:
  mirrorfly_plugin: ^1.0.1
  • Run flutter pub get command in your project directory.

Step 3: Use the Mirrorfly Plugin in your App

You can use all classes and methods just with the one import statement as shown below.

import 'package:mirrorfly_plugin/mirrorfly.dart';

Sending your first message

Follow the step-by-step instructions below to authenticate and send your first message.

Authentication

In order to use the features of Mirrorfly Plugin for Flutter, you should initiate the MirrorflyPlugin instance through user authentication with Mirrorfly server. This instance communicates and interacts with the server based on an authenticated user account, allowing the client app to use the Mirrorfly Plugin's features.

Here are the steps to sending your first message using the Mirrorfly Plugin:

Step 1: Initialize the Mirrorfly Plugin

To initialize the plugin, place the below code in your main.dart file inside main function before runApp().

 void main() {
  WidgetsFlutterBinding.ensureInitialized();
  Mirrorfly.initializeSDK(
      licenseKey: 'your license key',
      iOSContainerID: 'your app group id',
      flyCallback: (FlyResponse response) {
        if (response.isSuccess) {
          LogMessage.d("onSuccess", response.message);
        } else {
          LogMessage.d("onFailure", response.exception?.message.toString());
        }
        runApp(const MyApp());
      });
}

Step 2: Registration

Use the below method to register a user in sandbox Live mode.

Info Unless you log out the session, make a note that should never call the registration method more than once in an application

Note: While registration, the below registerUser method will accept the FCM_TOKEN as an optional param and pass it

across. The connection will be established automatically upon completion of registration and not required for seperate login

.

Mirrorfly.registerUser
(
userIdentifier,flyCallback: (FlyResponse response) {
// you will get the user registration response
if (response.isSuccess && response.hasData) {
var userData = registerModelFromJson(response.data); //message

} else {
// Register user failed print throwable to find the exception details.
if (response.exception?.code == "403") {
//admin blocked the user
} else if (response.exception?.code == "405") {
//maximum device limit reached
}
}
});

Note: After registering, make sure to update the profile of the registered

user Update Profile

.

Note: You need to re-login when

the onLoggedOut

event is triggered.

Note: It is recommended to disallow users to backup an app if it contains sensitive data. Having access to backup files (i.e. when android:allowBackup="true"), it is possible to modify/read the content of an app even on a non-rooted device.

Caution: If FORCE_REGISTER is false and it reached the maximum no of multi-sessions then registration will not succeed it will throw a 405 exception, Either FORCE_REGISTER should be true or one of the existing session need to be logged out to continue registration.

Send a One-to-One Message

Use the below method to send a text message to other user,

Note: To generate a unique user jid by username, you must call the below method

To get JID of User


var userJid = await
Mirrorfly.getJid
(
username
:
username
);

To get Group JID


var groupJid = await
Mirrorfly.getGroupJid
(
groupId
:
groupID
);
Mirrorfly.sendMessage
(
messageParams: MessageParams.text(toJid: "",
replyMessageId: "",textMessageParams: TextMessageParams(messageText: "Hi")), flyCallback: (response){
if(response.isSuccess){
print('Message sent successfully');
} else {
print('Failed to send message: ${response.errorMessage}');
}
});

Receive a One-to-One Message

Here the listeners would be called only when a new message is received from other user. To get more details please visit this callback listeners

Mirrorfly.onMessageReceived.listen
(
result){
// you will get the new messages
var chatMessage = sendMessageModelFromJson(result)
}

Call Feature

Note: To enable the Call Feature in iOS, need to enable VOIP as shown below.

Screenshot

To make a Video Call

Mirrorfly.makeVideoCall
(
toUserJid: userJID).then((isSuccess) {

});

To make a Voice Call

Mirrorfly.makeVoiceCall
(
toUserJid: userJID).then((isSuccess) {

});

Note: Provide Microphone and Camera permission and usage description in the iOS plist and Android Manifest file of your project.

Mirrorfly.makeGroupVoiceCall
(
groupJid: GROUP_ID, toUserJidList: USER_LIST).then((isSuccess) {

});

To make a Group Video Call
