Integration #

Creating a Flutter app on the Instabug dashboard isn't possible yet. Create a React Native app instead.

Installation #

  1. Add Instabug to your pubspec.yaml file.
  1. Install the package by running the following command.
flutter packages get

Using Instabug #

  1. To start using Instabug, import it into your Flutter app.
import 'package:instabug_flutter/Instabug.dart';
  1. Initialize the SDK in initState(). This line enables the SDK with the default behavior and sets it to be shown when the devices is shaken.
InstabugFlutter.start('APP_TOKEN', [InvocationEvent.shake]);

Make sure to replace app_token with your application token.

  1. If your app supports Android, create a new Java class that extends FlutterApplication and add it to your AndroidManifest.xml.
  1. In your newly created CustomFlutterApplication class, override onCreate() and add the following code.
ArrayList<String> invocationEvents = new ArrayList<>();
new InstabugFlutterPlugin().start(CustomFlutterApplication.this, "APP_TOKEN", invocationEvents);

Microphone and Photo Library Usage Description (iOS Only) #

Instabug needs access to the microphone and photo library to be able to let users add audio and video attachments. Starting from iOS 10, apps that don’t provide a usage description for those 2 permissions would be rejected when submitted to the App Store.

For your app not to be rejected, you’ll need to add the following 2 keys to your app’s info.plist file with text explaining to the user why those permissions are needed:

  • NSMicrophoneUsageDescription
  • NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription

If your app doesn’t already access the microphone or photo library, we recommend using a usage description like:

  • "<app name> needs access to the microphone to be able to attach voice notes."
  • "<app name> needs access to your photo library for you to be able to attach images."

The permission alert for accessing the microphone/photo library will NOT appear unless users attempt to attach a voice note/photo while using Instabug.

Instabug is an in-app feedback and bug reporting tool for mobile apps. With just a simple shake, your users or beta testers can report bugs or send in-app feedback and the SDK will capture an environment snapshot of your user's device including all console logs, server-side network requests and bug reproduction steps compiling all these details in one organised dashboard to help you debug and fix bugs faster.
