Flutter Android iOS

Quickly distribute your Flutter app to testers or enterprise users by uploading it to the AppHost hosting service

flutter_app_host #

Integrate app distribution and over-the-air (OTA) installation into your Flutter workflow. This package allows you to directly upload your Android .apk and iOS .ipa packages to the AppHost hosting service. Then, simply share your app's private link with testers and enterprise app users.

Example usage #

Upload your latest Android release build to hosting:

>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host apk-release

Result:

Upload complete! Install your app from:

https://appho.st/d/#/d3Yg88ve

Installation #

  1. Add flutter_app_host to dev_dependencies in your project's pubspec.yaml file
  2. Sign up for a free account at https://appho.st
  3. Enable the private upload API by going to the Dashboard page and generating an API key
  4. Add an App to your account (set the name, logo, etc.)
  5. On the page for your new app, scroll to the Private API section and download your config file
  6. Rename the config file to .apphost and move it to the root of your local project directory (probably add it to your .gitignore too...)

Usage #

>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host

Displays a list of detected build outputs and the relevant commands to upload them:

Found the following application builds:

* Android: release build, version 1.1.0
>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host apk-release

* Android: debug build, version 1.1.0
>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host apk-debug

Manually upload Android build archives (.apk file):
>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host apk <version> <filename>

Manually upload iOS build archives (.ipa file):
https://flutter.dev/docs/deployment/ios#create-a-build-archive
>> flutter packages pub run flutter_app_host ipa <version> <filename> <ios_bundle_identifier>

Configuration #

The package relies on a configuration file .apphost in the directory its called from. This is a JSON document with the following structure:

{
  "user_id": "...",
  "app_id": "...",
  "key": "my_private_api_key...",
  "ios_bundle_identifier": "com.mycompany.myapp..."
}

The last field, ios_bundle_identifier, is optional. It can be used to avoid having to specify the bundle identifier when uploading iOS .ipa archives.
