Installation #

Add dev_menu: 1.0.3 as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Information #

packageName (Mandatory) is package name (Android: applicationId). For example: "com.example.dev_menu_example"

Note: This is not needed for iOS, since there is no way of using this String to get the application data.

flags is list of maps, contaning title, and description. They are used to turn certain features/test on and off. Working with the help of Shared preferences.


    'title': 'Is Environment button enabled?',
    'description': 'Determine if Environment button should work.',

Using flags in your app:

bool isButtonEnabled = await DevMenuHelper()
  .getSharedPreferenceBool('Is Environment button enabled?'); -> matches "title" from above.
print('Is button enabled? ' + isButtonEnabled);

Or use bool to show Widget with combination of FutureBuilder

return FutureBuilder<bool>(
  future: DevMenuHelper()
    .getSharedPreferenceBool('Should show recent transactions?'),
  builder: (context, snapshot) {
    if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.done &&
    snapshot.hasData) {
      bool shouldShowTransactions =;
      return shouldShowTransactions ? TransactionsWidget() : Container();
    } else {
      return Container();

testWidgets is list of widgets provided for Test playground screen of plugin. Usually widgets which are not yet connected with the Apps flow, or work in progress stuff.


    'name': 'Alert dialog',
    'widget': AlertDialog(
      title: Text('Title'),
      content: Text('Content'),
      actions: <Widget>[
          onPressed: () {},
          child: Center(
            child: Text('Button 1'),
          onPressed: () {},
          child: Center(
            child: Text('Button 2'),
    'name': 'Sized box',
    'widget': SizedBox(
