flutter_share_content 0.2.1+1

Share content for flutter #

pub package

A simple plugin for Flutter to share content.

This content could be a picture but also a message. Furthermore a title can be added to show in the sharing screen.

Every version of Android is supported, included from version 24 and above. For those devices is mandatory the use of FileProvider class in order to grant access to the images stored in the phone.

Version 0.2.0 is supporting androidX.

iOS is not going to be implemented because I don't have a macOS.

Installation #

First add flutter_share_content as a dependency in your pubsec.yaml

Android #

Add this in your build.gradle

dependencies {
    api 'androidx.legacy:legacy-support-v4:1.0.0'

And this in your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>



Also create res/filepaths.xml with this content

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<paths xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<external-path name="external_files" path="."/>

              : new Image.file(_image),
        FloatingActionButton(onPressed: share, child: Icon(Icons.share),),

            children: <Widget>[
              new FloatingActionButton(
