notifications 0.0.3

notifications #

pub package

A plugin for tracking notifications on the device. Works exclusively for Android.

Installation #

Add notifications as a dependency in pubspec.yaml. For help on adding as a dependency, view the documentation.

Usage #

Android: Register service in the manifest #

The plugin uses an Android system service to track notifications. To allow this service to run the following code should be put inside the Android manifest, between the <application></application> tags.

<service android:name="cachet.plugins.notifications.NotificationListener"
        <action android:name="android.service.notification.NotificationListenerService" />

Flutter: Listen to notification events #

Notifications notifications = new Notifications();
StreamSubscription<NotificationEvent> events;
events =;

Where the onData() method handles the incoming NotificationEvents. An example could be:

void onData(NotificationEvent event) => print(event.toString());

Notification Information #

Every time a notification is registered a NotificationEvent is received in Flutter, containing the following attributes:

  • packageName [String]: The name of the application which triggered the notification.
  • timeStamp [DateTime]: The timestamp at which the notification was received.
    • Alternatively, timeStamp can be converted to a unix timestamp using timeStamp.millisecondsSinceEpoch.

0.0.1 #

  • TODO: Describe initial release.
