devicelocale 0.7.0 devicelocale: ^0.7.0 copied to clipboard
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.
Gets the device locale data, independent of the app locale settings.
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.
Android specific implementation (no-op on other platforms) #
Added per-app language preferences for Android (https://developer.android.com/about/versions/13/features/app-languages#kotlin)
You can check if your current device is supported
And after checking if your device is supported you can set the per-app language preference with
setLanguagePerApp(Locale) this will return true if success
Note for Linux #
Since GNU/Linux and POSIX doesn't provide a standard API for getting the preferred languages,
Devicelocale.preferredLanguages always returns the current locale.
