Flutter Notification Permissions

Package to check for and ask for Notification Permissions on iOS and Android.

Checking Notification Permission Status

Future<PermissionStatus> permissionStatus =
    NotificationPermissions.getNotificationPermissionStatus();

This method will return an enum with the following values:

enum PermissionStatus {
	granted,
	unknown,
	denied
}

In iOS, a permission is unknown when the user hasn’t accepted or refuse the notification permissions. In Android this state will never occur, since the permission will be granted by default and it will be denied if the user goes to the app settings and turns off notifications for the app.

Requesting Notification Permissions

If the PermissionStatus is denied or unknown, we can ask the user for the Permissions:

Future<PermissionStatus> permissionStatus = NotificationPermissions.getNotificationPermissionStatus();

On Android, if the permission is denied, this method will open the app settings.

In iOS, if the permission is unknown, it will show an alert window asking the user for the permission. On the other hand, if the permission is denied it has the same behaviour as Android, opening the app settings.

Note: if the permission is granted, this method will not do anything.

iOS Error: Swift.h not found

If your project is in Objective-C, you will have to do the changes referenced in this SO post in order to solve the issue:

'notification_permissions/notification_permissions-Swift.h' file not found
    #import <notification_permissions/notification_permissions-Swift.h>
            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
