A Flutter plugin for location with Callbacks.

Flutter Location Plugin #

This plugin for Flutter handles getting location on Android and iOS. It also provides callbacks when location is changed.

Demo App

Getting Started #

In order to use this plugin in Android, you have to add this permission in AndroidManifest.xml :

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />

Permission check for Android 6+ was added. Still no callback when permissions granted so aiming SDK 21 is safer.

And to use it in iOS, you have to add this permission in Info.plist :

NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription
NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription

Then you just have to import the package with

import 'package:location/location.dart';

Look into the example for utilisation, but a basic implementation can be done like this for one time call :

var currentLocation = <String, double>{};

var location = new Location();

// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
try {
  currentLocation = await location.getLocation;
} on PlatformException {
  currentLocation = null;
}

You can also get continuous callbacks when your position is changing :

var location = new Location();

location.onLocationChanged.listen((Map<String,double> currentLocation) {
  print(currentLocation["latitude"]);
  print(currentLocation["longitude"]);
  print(currentLocation["accuracy"]);
  print(currentLocation["altitude"]);
});

If you want a one shot updated location :

var location = new Location();

Map<String,double> currentlocation = location.onLocationChanged.firstWhere((d) => d != null);
