contacts_service

pub package A Flutter plugin to access and manage the device's contacts.

Usage

To use this plugin, add contacts_service as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Make sure you add the following permissions to your Android Manifest:

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

On iOS, make sure to set NSContactsUsageDescription in the Info.plist file

<key>NSContactsUsageDescription</key>
<string>This app requires contacts access to function properly.</string>

To check and request user permission to access contacts, I recommend using the following plugin: flutter_simple_permissions

Example

// Import package
import 'package:contacts_service/contacts_service.dart';

// Get all contacts
Iterable<Contact> contacts = await ContactsService.getContacts();

// Get contacts matching a string
Iterable<Contact> johns = await ContactsService.getContacts(query : "john");

// Add a contact
// The contact must have a firstName / lastName to be successfully addded
await ContactsService.addContact(newContact);

//Delete a contact
await ContactsService.deleteContact(contact);

Example

Todo

  • update contact
  • add withThumbnails optional parameter in getContacts method
