open_filex

pub package

A plug-in that can call native APP to open files with string result in flutter, support iOS(DocumentInteraction) / android(intent) / PC(ffi) / web(dart:html)

Notice

This package is a fork of open_file to fix the following issues:

  • Remove REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES permission in Android to comply with GooglePlay publish policies
  • Update ffi to 2.0.1+
  • Upgrade support for granular media permissions in Android 13
  • Fix plugin lifecycle onDetachedFromActivity in Android
  • Fix viewController is not recognized in iOS
  • Fix parse args not filtering commands properly
  • Replace JCenter with MavenCentral in Android build.gradle repositories (since JCenter becomes unreachable sometimes due to it's end of life)

For full list of changes see CHANGELOG
