Development progress #

  • User identification ✔️

  • Foreground tracking ✔️
    This works but it
    does not allow to set a callback

  • Background tracking ✔️

  • Configuration ✔️
    Currently you can only choose one of the 3
    predefined configurations

  • Event verification ✖️

  • Location search ✖️

  • Geocoding ✖️

  • Distance ✖️

  • Permission request ✖️
    Not a priority as
    there are already many great plugins that perform this

Setup #

Android #

Add the following permissions to your AndroidManifest.xml in android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />    
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />    
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION" />    
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />    
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" />

iOS #

This plugin requires at least iOS 10.0.

Edit your first line of your PodFile like this:

platform :ios, '10.0'

Then find this line and comment it:

# use_frameworks!

Then add the following keys to your Info.plist file. Make sure to replace the placeholder descriptions with some meaningful explanation related to why you are requesting these permissions.

<key>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>       <string>Your iOS 11 and higher background location usage description goes here. e.g., "This app uses your location in the background to recommend places nearby."</string>    
            
           <key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>    
           <string>Your iOS 10 and lower background location usage description goes here. e.g., "This app uses your location in the background to recommend places nearby."</string>    
            
           <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>    
           <string>Your foreground location usage description goes here. e.g., "This app uses your location in the foreground to recommend places nearby."</string>    
           <key>UIBackgroundModes</key>    
           <array>    
             <string>fetch</string>    
             <string>location</string>    
           </array>  

Requesting permissions #

Additionally, you will have to manage the location permission request. In the example app, you will see that we have used permission_handler but feel free to use any other plugin you like. If you choose to go with permission permission_handler make sure to follow their installation steps as well.

Usage #

You can check the example for a rather complete implementation and you can always check the Official docs.
