Example #

Here is an example flutter app displaying the two shares methods. (I'm using documents_picker just to get a local file you don't need to use.)

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:async';

import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
import 'package:flutter_share/flutter_share.dart';
import 'package:documents_picker/documents_picker.dart';

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

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  Future<void> share() async {
    await FlutterShare.share(
      title: 'Example share',
      text: 'Example share text',
      linkUrl: 'https://flutter.dev/',
      chooserTitle: 'Example Chooser Title'

  Future<void> shareFile() async {
    List<dynamic> docs = await DocumentsPicker.pickDocuments;
    if (docs == null || docs.isEmpty) return null;

    await FlutterShare.shareFile(
      title: 'Example share',
      text: 'Example share text',
      filePath: docs[0] as String,

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text('Plugin example app'),
        body: Center(
          child: Column(
            crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
            mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
            children: <Widget>[
                child: Text('Share text and link'),
                onPressed: share,
                child: Text('Share local file'),
                onPressed: shareFile,
