A Flutter plugin to retrieve and manage contacts on Android and iOS devices based on contacts_service by Clovis Nicolas
A Flutter plugin to access and manage the device's contacts.
To use this plugin, add
contacts_service as a dependency in your
Make sure you add the following permissions to your Android Manifest:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_CONTACTS" /> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS" />
On iOS, make sure to set
NSContactsUsageDescription in the
<key>NSContactsUsageDescription</key> <string>This app requires contacts access to function properly.</string>
To check and request user permission to access contacts, I recommend using the following plugin: flutter_simple_permissions
If you do not request user permission or have it granted, the application will fail. For testing purposes, you can manually set the permissions for your test app in Settings for your app on the device that you are using. For Android, go to "Settings" - "Apps" - select your test app - "Permissions" - then turn "on" the slider for contacts.
// Import package import 'package:contacts_service/contacts_service.dart'; // Get all contacts Iterable<Contact> contacts = await ContactsService.getContacts(); // Get contacts matching a string Iterable<Contact> johns = await ContactsService.getContacts(query : "john"); // Add a contact // The contact must have a firstName / lastName to be successfully addded await ContactsService.addContact(newContact); //Delete a contact await ContactsService.deleteContact(contact);
- [ ] update contact
