Geofencing #

A sample geofencing plugin with background execution support for Flutter.

Getting Started #

This plugin works on both Android and iOS. Follow the instructions in the following sections for the platforms which are to be targeted.

Android #

Add the following lines to your AndroidManifest.xml to register the background service for geofencing:

<receiver android:name="io.flutter.plugins.geofencing.GeofencingBroadcastReceiver"
    android:enabled="true" android:exported="true"/>
<service android:name="io.flutter.plugins.geofencing.GeofencingService"
    android:permission="android.permission.BIND_JOB_SERVICE" android:exported="true"/>

Also request the correct permissions for geofencing:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>

Finally, create either Application.kt or Application.java in the same directory as MainActivity.

For Application.kt, use the following:

class Application : FlutterApplication(), PluginRegistrantCallback {
  override fun onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    GeofencingService.setPluginRegistrant(this);
  }

  override fun registerWith(registry: PluginRegistry) {
    GeneratedPluginRegistrant.registerWith(registry);
  }
}

For Application.java, use the following:

public class Application extends FlutterApplication implements PluginRegistrantCallback {
  @Override
  public void onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    GeofencingService.setPluginRegistrant(this);
  }

  @Override
  public void registerWith(PluginRegistry registry) {
    GeneratedPluginRegistrant.registerWith(registry);
  }
}

Which must also be referenced in AndroidManifest.xml:

    <application
        android:name=".Application"
        ...

iOS #

Add the following lines to your Info.plist:

<dict>
    <key>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
    <string>YOUR DESCRIPTION HERE</string>
    <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
    <string>YOUR DESCRIPTION HERE</string>
    ...

And request the correct permissions for geofencing:

<dict>
    ...
    <string>Main</string>
    <key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
    <array>
        <string>location-services</string>
        <string>gps</string>
        <string>armv7</string>
    </array>
    <key>UIBackgroundModes</key>
    <array>
        <string>location</string>
    </array>
    ...
</dict>
