Top Flutter Packages and Why they Matter!

Open Source Platforms have always had a significant impact on how software has been written down and distributed. The idea of Open Source Software dates back to 1983 when Richard Stallman, a programmer at MIT believed that software should be freely available to programmers helping them modify it as per their requirements, which helped the community to share knowledge. 

Stallman, under his license, started releasing free code, which he called the GNU Public License. This new approach and ideology surrounding software creation took hold and eventually led to the formation of the Open Source Initiative in 1998.

To name a few, Google’s Flutter UI framework dived deep into the mobile app development community across geographies, Flutter is another such community providing an open-source UI software development kit created by Google that is used to develop accessible and smooth cross-platform applications in a single codebase.

Whether you need support for specific features or want to improve your app’s performance, these Flutter resources will give you the boost you need.

  1. Flutter Location Plugin

This Flutter plugin is used to handle a real-time location in iOS and Android while providing settings for optimizing performance or battery. It also provides callbacks when the location is changed. Just remember that the user has to accept the location permission to always allow to use of the background location.

Flutter Location Plugin

To request a location, you should manually check the Location Service status and Permission status.

For Android, a foreground notification is displayed with information that the location service is running in the background.

For iOS, while the app is in the background and gets the location, the blue system bar notifies users about updates. Tapping on this bar moves the User back to the app.
