Flutter Location Plugin #

A Flutter plugin to provide native location.

WARN: This plugin was written in swift/kotlin to be able to use it, you should have create the project with:

    flutter create -i swift -a kotlin project_name

Getting Started #

For help getting started with Flutter, view our online documentation. For help on editing plugin code, view the documentation.

Add the dependency to your pubspec.yaml file.

  flutter_location: ^0.0.4

In order to be able to receive location information from an iOS device, you need to modify the Info.plist, and add:

<string>This message will be display to the user</string>

Then import the publin in your code:

import 'package:flutter_location/flutter_location.dart'; // Plugin
import 'package:flutter_location/permission.dart'; // Return type
import 'package:flutter_location/location.dart'; // Return type

Look into the example for utilisation, but a basic implementation can be done like this for a one time location:

Location _location;
Location _currentLocation;
void initState() {
Future<void> initLocation() async {
    try {
      await _initLocation();
    } on PlatformException catch (e) {
      print('Location initialization errror: ${e.message}');
Future<void> _initLocation() async {
    Permission locationPermission;
    //  FlutterLocation.permissionLevel can throw PlatformException
    locationPermission = await FlutterLocation.permissionLevel;
    if (locationPermission == Permission.NOT_DETERMINED) {
      // Waiting for the user to authorized or denied permission
      return await Future.delayed(_waitForUser, _initLocation);
    if (locationPermission == Permission.DENIED || !mounted) {
      // nothing to do here
    Location location = await FlutterLocation.location;
    setState(() => _location = location);
      (location) {
        print('Current location changes to: $location');
        setState(() => _currentLocation = location);

For more examples checkout:


Future<Permission> permissionLevelGet the level of permission the user has granted to the app (NOT_DETERMINED, DENIED, AUTHORIZED).
Future<Location> locationGet the location of the user.
Stream<Location> onLocationChangedGet the stream of the user's location.

Model #

Permission: #

  • NOT_DETERMINED: Permission not specified
  • DENIED: The user rejected the authorization
  • AUTHORIZED: The user granted permission to use location

Location { #

  • double latitude
  • double longitude
  • double accuracy, right now set it to horizontal accuracy
  • double altitude
  • double speed

Add more detail to the description field of pubspec.yaml. Use 60 to 180 characters to describe the package, what it does, and its target use case.

Package is pre-v0.1 release. (-10 points)

While nothing is inherently wrong with versions of 0.0.*, it might mean that the author is still experimenting with the general direction of the API.
