path_provider

pub package

A Flutter plugin for finding commonly used locations on the filesystem. Supports iOS, Android, Linux and MacOS. Not all methods are supported on all platforms.

Usage

To use this plugin, add path_provider as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Example

Directory tempDir = await getTemporaryDirectory();
String tempPath = tempDir.path;

Directory appDocDir = await getApplicationDocumentsDirectory();
String appDocPath = appDocDir.path;

Please see the example app of this plugin for a full example.

Usage in tests

path_provider now uses a PlatformInterface, meaning that not all platforms share the a single PlatformChannel-based implementation. With that change, tests should be updated to mock PathProviderPlatform rather than PlatformChannel.

See this path_provider test for an example.
