pusher_connect - A Flutter plugin to Pusher.com #

This is a working proof of concept, using the official Android (Java) and iOS (Swift) Pusher libraries to create a working Flutter based solution.

  • You can currently connect to a cluster using an appKey, and to only one channel and event. This can easily be abstracted to allow for multiple subscriptions to channels and events.

1.0.0 #

  • IOS now works, so MVP is basically completed

  • Added ios swift version
