devicelocale 0.3.2

Flutter Android iOS

A Flutter package that can be used to extract the locales that are currently defined on a device with the current locale set as the first in the list.

devicelocale #

Gets the device locale data, independent of the app locale settings.

Usage #

import 'package:devicelocale/devicelocale.dart';

then

List languages = await Devicelocale.preferredLanguages;
String locale = await Devicelocale.currentLocale;

this should return a list of the preferred/current language locales setup on the device, with the current one being the first in the list or just the currently set device locale.

iOS #

When first created this was a Swift based plugin, but due to these issues the Swift code has been removed and it now uses a simple Objective C call.

Updates #

Jul 2020 Locale update v0.3.1 #

This is an update from a received request, where prior to 0.3.1 the 2 methods:

  • preferredLanguages
  • currentLocale

returned string values.

There are now 2 equivilent methods

  • preferredLanguagesAsLocales
  • currentAsLocale

that now also return a Locale object rather than a string.

releases #

  • July 2020 0.3.0 Updated Android to support Android Embedding V2

  • Apr 2020 0.2.3 Updated Android code from contributions from @ened

  • Mar 2020 0.2.2 Updated iOS so that if detected locale is null then it is not included in return value

  • Sep 2019 0.2.0 Updated Android following feedback from https://github.com/huzhirento . Fallback to the currentLocale when attempting to get a list of locales fro Android 7 and below as the getLocales() call is a feature of API 24 and failed for Android 7 and below.
