flutter_linkedin_login #

A Flutter plugin for Sign in with LinkedIn


LinkedIn is discontinuing their mobile SDKs, which this plugin depends on. iOS 12 seems to already be not working anymore. The LinkedIn app, doesn't ask for 3rd party app permissions like it used to. Support will end March 2019. The fate of this plugin is undetermined. It may be redesigned to use LinkedIn's OAuth 2.0 APIs. Stay tuned. See [https://engineering.linkedin.com/blog/2018/12/developer-program-updates]

Installation #
