esys_flutter_share 1.0.2

esys_flutter_share #

A Flutter plugin for sharing files & text with other applications.

IMPORTANT Note for iOS #

If you are starting a new fresh app, you need to create the Flutter App with flutter create -i swift (see flutter/flutter#13422 (comment)), otherwise, you will get this message:

=== BUILD TARGET flutter_inappbrowser OF PROJECT Pods WITH CONFIGURATION Debug ===
The "Swift Language Version" (SWIFT_VERSION) build setting must be set to a supported value for targets which use Swift. Supported values are: 3.0, 4.0, 4.2. This setting can be set in the build settings editor.

If you still have this problem, try to edit iOS Podfile like this (see #15):

target 'Runner' do
  use_frameworks!  # required by simple_permission

post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    target.build_configurations.each do |config|
      config.build_settings['SWIFT_VERSION'] = '4.0'  # required by simple_permission
      config.build_settings['ENABLE_BITCODE'] = 'NO'

Instead, if you have already a non-swift project, you can check this issue to solve the problem: Friction adding swift plugin to objective-c project.

Usage #


import 'package:esys_flutter_share/esys_flutter_share.dart';

Share text:

Share.text('my text title', 'This is my text to share with other applications.', 'text/plain');

Share file:

final ByteData bytes = await rootBundle.load('assets/image1.png');
await Share.file('esys image', 'esys.png', bytes.buffer.asUint8List(), 'image/png', text: 'My optional text.');

Share files:

final ByteData bytes1 = await rootBundle.load('assets/image1.png');
final ByteData bytes2 = await rootBundle.load('assets/image2.png');
final ByteData bytes3 = await rootBundle.load('assets/addresses.csv');

await Share.files(
    'esys images',
        'esys.png': bytes1.buffer.asUint8List(),
        'bluedan.png': bytes2.buffer.asUint8List(),
        'addresses.csv': bytes3.buffer.asUint8List(),
    text: 'My optional text.');

Share file from url:

var request = await HttpClient().getUrl(Uri.parse(''));
var response = await request.close();
Uint8List bytes = await consolidateHttpClientResponseBytes(response);
await Share.file('ESYS AMLOG', 'amlog.jpg', bytes, 'image/jpg');
