Add dependency #

dependencies:
  uri_to_file: ^1.0.0

Super simple to use #

import 'dart:io';

import 'package:uri_to_file/uri_to_file.dart';

Future<void> convertUriToFile() async {
  try {
    String uriString = 'content://sample.txt'; // Uri string

    // Don't pass uri parameter using [Uri] object via uri.toString().
    // Because uri.toString() changes the string to lowercase which causes this package to misbehave

    // If you are using uni_links package for deep linking purpose.
    // Pass the uri string using getInitialLink() or linkStream

    File file = await toFile(uriString); // Converting uri to file
  } catch (e) {
    print(e); // Exception
  }
}

Important note #

  • Don't pass uri parameter using [Uri] object via uri.toString(). Because uri.toString() changes the string to lowercase which causes this package to misbehave
  • If you are using uni_links package for deep linking purpose. Pass the uri string using getInitialLink() or linkStream
