Build & Run:

Run the Android Application:

  1. In the target selector, select an Android device for running the app. If none are listed as available, select Tools> Android > AVD Manager and create one there. For details, see Managing AVDs. Click the run icon in the toolbar, or invoke the menu item Run > Run. Locate the main Android Studio toolbar:
  2. If you don't use Android Studio or IntelliJ you can use the command line to run your application using the following command:
  3.                                         flutter run
                                        
    build
  4. Please try to use real device for installing app, sometimes it's not run emulator

Run the iOS Application:

  1. The first thing that we require in hand is a test flutter app on our Mac
  2. Before we start testing our flutter app on the iPhone you need to make sure that our phone trusts us as a developer on that device. To do that follow this path go:
  3.                                         Settings > General > Device Management or Profile > (Tap On) Trust “Your Developer Name”
                                        
  4. To test or deploy our flutter app to a physical device we first need to enable physical device deployment in Xcode using Apple ID or an Apple Developer account. And we also need to set up a package manager to manage flutter plugins that are to be used in the project.
  5. First, we are going to install a third-party package manager called CocoaPods to manage flutter plugins that our project might depend on. To install and set up cocoapod the below command needs to be executed successfully in the terminal.
  6.                                         $ sudo gem install cocoapods
                                        
    build
  7. After we are done with the cocoapod installation we will proceed to locate the Runner.xcworkspace file inside the ios folder in our project directory. Then we need to open this file on the Xcode with a double click. OR write command
  8.                                         $ open ios/Runner.xcworkspace
                                        
    build
  9. When it’s done loading we need to make sure we are on the Runner file which is listed first on the left menu bar.
  10. build
  11. After that, we need to be inside the Signing & Capabilities page. In this page we will click on the button which says ‘Add an Account’.
  12. build
  13. And add your Apple ID, put your password and select your account.
  14. build
  15. Now, go back to the General tab and change the Bundle Identifier to something unique. (In place of “example” put something else).
  16. build
  17. So, if you haven’t already connected your iPhone you will see “No device” in the search bar shown below.
  18. build
  19. Go ahead and connect your phone with the PC and when it’s done you will see a phone icon in place of “No device”. Select your phone which will take a few seconds to load.
  20. build
  21. And once that is done you need to press the play button on the left menu bar, which will start building the app on the iPhone
  22. build
  23. This process will take some time and once it’s done you will see a message appear that says the build process was completed successfully.
  24. build
  25. Please try to use real device for installing app, sometimes it's not run simulator

Install And Release Android App:

Here is your section structure.

  1. After you make all your changes and customizations save all your project, Open the console, navigate to your project folder and execute the following command to build your app:
  2.                                         flutter build apk --release
                                        
  3. If you are deploying the app to the Play Store, it's recommended to use app bundles or split the APK to reduce the APK size.

Build and Install App:

  1. To generate an app bundle, run:
  2.                                         flutter build appbundle --target-platform android-arm,android-arm64,android-x64
                                        
    Learn more on https://developer.android.com/guide/app-bundle
  3. To split the APKs per ABI, run:
  4.                                         flutter build apk --target-platform android-arm,android-arm64,android-x64 --split-per-abi
                                        
    Learn more on https://developer.android.com/studio/build/configure-apk-splits#confi
  5. If you want to upload your application on Google Play you must sign it before uploading, generate a signing key by running the following command:
  6.                                         keytool -genkey -v -keystore android/app/key.jks -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000 -alias key
                                        
  7. Reference the keystore from the app: Create a file named appdir/android/key.properties that contains a reference to your keystore:
  8.                                         storePassword=password from previous step 
    keyPassword=password from previous step
    keyAlias=key
    storeFile=location of the key store file, e.g. /Users/user name/key.jks
  9. Go to android/app/build.gradle
  10.                                         def keystorePropertiesFile = rootProject.file("key.properties")
    def keystoreProperties = new Properties()
    keystoreProperties.load(new FileInputStream(keystorePropertiesFile))

    • signingConfigs {
        release {
          keyAlias keystoreProperties['keyAlias']
          keyPassword keystoreProperties['keyPassword']
          storeFile file(keystoreProperties['storeFile'])
          storePassword keystoreProperties['storePassword']
        }
      }
    • buildTypes {
        release {
         signingConfig signingConfigs.release
        }
      }
