This Flutter plugin allows you to manage and interact with the application's home screen quick actions.

Quick actions refer to the eponymous concept on iOS and to the App Shortcuts APIs on Android (introduced in Android 7.1 / API level 25). It is safe to run this plugin with earlier versions of Android as it will produce a noop.

Usage in Dart

Initialize the library early in your application's lifecycle by providing a callback, which will then be called whenever the user launches the app via a quick action.

quickActions.initialize((shortcutType) {
  if (shortcutType == 'action_main') {
    print('The user tapped on the "Main view" action.');
  // More handling code...

Finally, manage the app's quick actions, for instance:

  new quickActions.ShortcutItem(type: 'action_main', localizedTitle: 'Main view', icon: 'icon_main'),
  new quickActions.ShortcutItem(type: 'action_help', localizedTitle: 'Help', icon: 'icon_help')

Please note, that the type argument should be unique within your application (among all the registered shortcut items). The optional icon should be the name of the native resource (xcassets on iOS or drawable on Android) that the app will display for the quick action.
