A plugin for setting up notification channels on android

flutter_notification_channel #


This plugin is made to register notification channels with custom configurations on Android. For more details read this https://developer.android.com/training/notify-user/channels Why is it necessary? E.g. firebase_messaging version 7.0.3 (current) and lower do not allow to set up a notification channel, thus notifications don't play any sounds or do not display on locked screen, or don't bubble and so on. This plugin is made merely for the purpose of creation a notification channel with custom configurations on Android. The channels then can be used along with firebase_messaging.

How to use #

Simply call it like this

var result = await FlutterNotificationChannel().registerNotificationChannel(
    description: 'Your channel description',
    id: 'your_channel_id',
    importance: NotificationImportance.IMPORTANCE_HIGH,
    name: 'Your channel name',
    visibility: NotificationVisibility.VISIBILITY_PUBLIC,
    allowBubbles: true,
    enableVibration: true,
    enableSound: true,
    showBadge: true,

Then, when you send a message to firebase like this, specify your android_channel_id and sound: "default" in order to play a default sound if you set "enableSound" in plugin. If you don't do this, the sound wont play at all on android 9 (I have no idea why)
