A plugin that connects Flutter to the Chrome Dev Tools on Android devices via the Stetho Android Library.

Network Inspector

The main feature I was aiming to achieve was a Network Inspector.

Network Inspector in Action

Getting Started

How can you too get this plugin up and running in your own app? Follow these steps.

Install the plugin

Add the following to your dev_dependencies in your pubspec.yaml

  flutter_stetho: 0.1.1

Install StethoHttpOverrides

Next, you'll need to install the StethoHttpOverrides in the main() function of your app. This will allow flutter_stetho to wrap all http calls and report information to the Chrome Dev Tools via the Stetho package from Facebook.

Note: It's probably a good idea only put this override in a main_dev.dart file.

void main() {
  HttpOverrides.global = new StethoHttpOverrides();

  runApp(new MyApp());

Run your app on an Android Device

flutter run

Open Chrome

Pop open Chrome or Chromium, navigate to chrome://inspect

You should now see your App appear in the window.

Known Issues

  • Timing may be slightly off for some requests. That's because:
  • Code is rough mvp / prototype code. Needs improvement.
  • Animated Gifs not working
  • Some error cases may not be properly handled. Need more testing / feedback to find problems.
  • No Tests
  • If the app shuts down on start up run flutter clean to remove old builds.
