url_strategy GitHub stars

Package for Flutter apps that allows setting the web URL strategy with a single line of code.


To use this plugin, follow the installing guide.

Setting the URL strategy

If you want to remove the leading hash (#) from the URL of your Flutter web app, you can simply call setPathUrlStrategy in the main function of your app:

import 'package:url_strategy/url_strategy.dart';

void main() {
  // Here we set the URL strategy for our web app.
  // It is safe to call this function when running on mobile or desktop as well.

Now, your Flutter web app will not have a leading # in the URL anymore.

It is safe to call the function even when running on any other platform than web (which is the point of this package). That means that you can safely call setPathUrlStrategy when running on mobile or desktop - it will simply be a noop.


Make sure that you have <base href="/"> included inside the <head> section of your web/index.html if you want to use the path URL strategy.
This is included by default when you create a new Flutter project.

Furthermore, you need to ensure that your production HTTP server always serves your web/index.html file for all paths.

Hash strategy

You can also use a hash URL strategy instead (which is the default) by calling setHashUrlStrategy.
