Flutter Platform Inputs #

Access native text fields from Flutter.

Use familar Flutter widget syntax to create native platform text fields to access native features such as password autofill.

Early work in progress, currently only supports iOS.

Why would I want this? #

Flutter provides excellent reproductions of iOS and Android text fields, but they aren't always as good as the real thing and lack support for some features.

For instance you can't access iOS password autofill with a Flutter CupertinoTextField, but you can with this package.

Example #

    controller: TextEditingController("initial value"),
    focusNode: FocusNode()
    placeholder: "Placeholder",
    textContentType: TextContentType.password,
    keyboardType: KeyboardType.defaultType,
    obsecureText: true,
    onChanged: (value) {
    onSubmitted: (value) {

0.0.2 #

  • Fix keyboard property bug on UiTextField

0.0.1 #

  • Initial alpha release. Support for UiTextFields for iOS only.
