flutter_native_string_res #

Flutter plugin for getting native string resources

Usage #

Check the example folder for code examples. To get a string resource, create a NativeStringResource instance. The constructor is the following:

  • String androidName: Name of string resource for Android
  • String iOSName: Name of string resource for iOS
  • String iOSPlistName: Name of property list file for iOS (omit the .plist extension)

All of these arguments can be omitted if, e.g., you are only fetching values for one platform.

To get the actual string from the resource, call the value getter of the created instance. Example:

var helloRes = NativeStringResource(
  androidName: 'hello',
  iOSName: 'hello',
  iOSPlistName: 'Test_plist'

print(await helloRes.value);

This will print Hello world! in the example project.

Setting values is not supported. Values other than strings are not supported

Maintenance #

This was a quick and dirty plugin I wrote so don't expect updates. Feel free to fork as I won't license this

Initial release Typo fixed


import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
import 'package:flutter_native_string_res/flutter_native_string_res.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  String _resourceContent = 'Unknown';

  void initState() {

  // Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
  Future<void> initPlatformState() async {
    String resourceContent;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      var res = NativeStringResource(
        androidName: 'hello',
        iOSName: 'hello',
        iOSPlistName: 'Test_list'
      resourceContent = await res.value;
    } on PlatformException catch(e,s) {
      print('Exception $e:\n$s');
      resourceContent = 'Failed to get resource string value.';

    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted) return;

    setState(() {
      _resourceContent = resourceContent;

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text('Plugin example app'),
        body: Center(
          child: Text('Resource value: $_resourceContent\n'),
