Update Helper #

Help you easier to control the update dialog. It also supports the feature that forces the app to update to continue using.

Screenshots (Left/Above: don't force to update, Right/Below: force to update and users cannot close the dialog):

Usage #

Version must be in format major.minor.patch

Simple Way #

final updateHelper = UpdateHelper.instance;
updateHelper.initial(
  context: context,
  updateConfig: UpdateConfig(
    defaultConfig: UpdatePlatformConfig(latestVersion: '3.0.0'),
  ),
  // forceUpdate: true, // Add this line if you want users to be forced to update
);

Advanced #

final latestVersion = '1.0.0';
final bannedVersions = ['<=0.9.0']; // <-------

final updateHelper = UpdateHelper.instance;

updateHelper.initial(
    context: context,
    updateConfig: UpdateConfig(
        defaultConfig: UpdatePlatformConfig(latestVersion: latestVersion),
    ),
    title: 'Update',
    content: 'A new version is available!\n\n'
        'Current version: %currentVersion\n'
        'Latest version: %latestVersion\n\n'
        'Would you like to update?',
    bannedVersions: bannedVersions, // <--------
    onlyShowDialogWhenBanned: false,
    forceUpdateContent: 'A new version is available!\n\n'
        'Current version: %currentVersion\n'
        'Latest version: %latestVersion\n\n'
        'Please update to continue using the app.',
    changelogsText: 'Changelogs',
    changelogs: [
        'Improve performances', 
        'Minor bugfixes',
    ],
    failToOpenStoreError:'Got an error when trying to open the Store, '
        'please update the app manually. '
        '\nSorry for the inconvenience.\n(Logs: %error)',
);

When you're setting onlyShowDialogWhenBanned to true, you can check the current version has update or not by using updateHelper.isAvailable variable, it will be true if the new version is available. You have to use this value after calling initial.

You can also check the current version needs to force update or not by using updateHelper.isForceUpdate. If this value is true, it means the forceUpdate variable is true or the current version is is bannedVersions.

If you want to create a custom dialog, you can create it via the dialogBuilder:

updateHelper.initial(
    context: context,
    updateConfig: UpdateConfig(
        defaultConfig: UpdatePlatformConfig(latestVersion: latestVersion),
    ),
    dialogBuilder: (context, config) {
        return AlertDialog.adaptive(
              title: const Text('Update'),
              content: const Text(
                  'This is a custom dialog.\n\nWould you like to update?'),
              actions: [
                TextButton(
                    onPressed: config.onOkPressed, child: const Text('OK')),
                TextButton(
                  onPressed: config.onLaterPressed,
                  child: Text(
                    'Later',
                    style: TextStyle(color: Theme.of(context).disabledColor),
                  ),
                ),
              ],
        );
    }
);

Additional #

/// Use this method to open the store
UpdateHelper.openStore();

NOTE: #

  • The plugin will replace %currentVersion and %latestVersion with it's real version.

  • You can use only forceUpdate or bannedVersions because forceUpdate will be true if the current version is satisfied with bannedVersions.

  • onlyShowDialogWhenBanned: only show the update dialog when the current version is banned or forceUpdate is true.

  • You can read more about how to use bannedVersions on satisfied_version plugin.

  • changelogsText is the changelogs text, default is 'Changelogs'. changelogs is a list of change log that you want to show in the new version, default is empty. The changelogsText and changelogs only show up when changelogs is not empty.

  • Show an error log when the app can't open the store, you can modify it using the failToOpenStoreError parameter. The plugin will replace the %error with it's real error log.
