Visual Studio App Center (Analytics) Plugin for Flutter

pub package

Several Flutter plugins to use the Microsoft Visual Studio App Center SDKs.

Note: This plugin is still under development, and some APIs (Distribute and Push are still missing) might not be available yet. Feedback and Pull Requests are most welcome!

Setup

To use this plugin:

  1. Connect to Visual Studio App Center Portal
  2. From the index page, select Add new and create a new iOS application (Platform: Objective-C/Swift), and keep your iOS app secret (ex: 123cfac9-123b-123a-123f-123273416a48).
  3. From the index page, select Add new and create a new Android application (Platform: Java), and keep your Android app secret (ex: 321cfac9-123b-123a-123f-123273416a48).
  4. Add those as dependencies in your pubspec.yaml file:
    • appcenter
    • appcenter_analytics

Usage

Global

import 'package:appcenter/appcenter.dart';
import 'package:appcenter_analytics/appcenter_analytics.dart';

Starting services

final ios = defaultTargetPlatform == TargetPlatform.iOS;
var app_secret = ios ? "123cfac9-123b-123a-123f-123273416a48" : "321cfac9-123b-123a-123f-123273416a48";

await AppCenter.start(app_secret, [AppCenterAnalytics.id]);

Enabling or disabling services

await AppCenter.setEnabled(false); // global 
await AppCenterAnalytics.setEnabled(false); // just a service

Analytics

Track events

AppCenterAnalytics.trackEvent("map"); 
AppCenterAnalytics.trackEvent("casino", { "dollars" : "10" }); // with custom properties
