android_wifi_info #

Dart plugin package for accessing Android's WifiInfo from Flutter. Android-only plugin.

This is a Dart plugin package for accessing wifi information from Flutter and Dart. This is an Android-only plugin.

The plugin wraps the WifiInfo class and provides access to all of its methods. It describes the state of any Wifi connection that is active or is in the process of being set up.

References #

The plugin is published on Dart Pub

You can read the API reference on Dart Pub.

The source code is available on GitHub smaho-engineering/android_wifi_info.

This Flutter plugin is created by the SMAHO engineering team.

Usage #

import 'package:android_wifi_info/android_wifi_info.dart';

getNetworkInfo() async {
  final bssid = await AndroidWifiInfo.bssid;
  final ssid = await AndroidWifiInfo.ssid;

Documentation #

AndroidWifiInfo Flutter plugin's documentation

Combine with other plugins to access features cross-platform #

This plugin is intentionally supporting only Android. However, this doesn't mean you cannot use this plugin to create your own cross-platform utility module for fetching the details you need for your app.

For example, if you want to fetch the current WiFi's BSSID, you can combine it with ios_network_info package:

import 'dart:io';

import 'package:android_wifi_info/android_wifi_info.dart';
import 'package:ios_network_info/ios_network_info.dart';

get bssid {
  if (Platform.isAndroid) {
    return AndroidWifiInfo.bssid;
  } else if (Platform.isIOS) {
    return IosNetworkInfo.bssid;
  throw Exception('WiFi BSSID is not supported on this platform');

To do #

This plugin is very much in progress.

There are some important tasks I'm still planning to do for the 1.x version release.

  • handle enums properly
  • related code, eg converting RSSI to something useful (scale)
  • don't forget to point users to how to convert int values to more traditional representations (ip)
  • Android Q? tx, rx link speed
  • could add links to the right sections in android docs
  • consider adding code snippets to the documentation
  • example app docs contains links and on tap could open the links in browser... but it's a bit of an overkill for an example app
  • make mac address work with proper permissions or at least document it

0.1.1 #

  • Fix br0k3n URL to the Pub

0.1.0 #

  • All WifiInfo methods are implemented except:
    • Android Q
    • methods with enum parameter or return value
  • All of these methods are documented
  • Example app
  • Documentation, READMEs, unit tests are in place

0.0.1 #

  • Initial release.
  • Still lots of todos, missing docs, readmes, examples. For 0.1.x, we'll have all of them
