Flutter Integration Guide

Pngme's Data SDK is used to fetch user authenticated data from an Android
device using the Flutter development framework.

Introduction

🚧

Notice

This documentation is for v1.0.34 of the Pngme SDK. Please check back for the v2.x release (ETA mid-Fed 2022).

Install dependencies

Update Gradle

In Flutter, go to /android/build.gradle.
Add this line:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' } // <-- add this line
    }
}

In the same file, update ext.kotlin_version to '1.4.32' if you are using an older version, if you are using a newer version please ignore this step

buildscript {
    ext.kotlin_version = '1.4.32' // <-- update version here
    repositories {
        google()
        jcenter()
    }

Now, go to android/app/build.gradle.

Add the following lines to dependencies:

dependencies {
    implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:$kotlin_version"
    // Add from here
    implementation ('com.github.pngme:android-sdk:v1.0.34')
    implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.2.0'
    implementation("androidx.multidex:multidex:2.0.1")
    // to here
}

Add the following line to android:

android {
    defaultConfig {
        multiDexEnabled = true  
    }
}

Build the Flutter Wrapper

Create a Loading Screen

Add a new file android/app/src/main/res/drawable/ic_pngme_logo.xml, with the following code:

<vector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:width="41dp"

</vector>

Create a Loading Screen Layout

Next, add the loading screen layout. Add a new file o do this, add a new file android/app/src/main/res/layout/view_pngme_helper.xml.

📘

Notice

Create a layout folder if needed, some Flutter projects may not have this by default.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:background="@color/pngme_sdk_background"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    android:layout_gravity="center_vertical"
    android:gravity="center|center_vertical"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/pngme_logo"
        android:layout_width="70dp"
        android:layout_height="70dp"
        android:src="@drawable/ic_pngme_logo"
        />

</LinearLayout>

Create the wrapper

Create a new Kotlin file named PngmeSDKHelper.kt in your project root. This is usually at the root of your applications named path, e.g. android/app/src/main/kotlin/com/example/my_app. The PngmeSDKHelper.kt file will be in the same directory as your MainActivity.kt.

🚧

Caution

Change com.example.my_app to your app's correct path structure

Copy and paste the code below into the PngmeSDKHelper.kt you have just created.

package com.example.my_app

// copy from here ->
// here you should change for your app name
import com.example.my_app.MainActivity.Companion.RESULT_SDK_ON_CLOSE_DIALOG
import com.example.my_app.MainActivity.Companion.RESULT_SDK_ON_COMPLETE_OK
import com.example.my_app.MainActivity.Companion.RESULT_SDK_ON_ERROR

import com.pngme.sdk.library.PngmeSdk
import com.pngme.sdk.library.data.UserInfo

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity
import android.os.Bundle

class PngmeSDKHelper : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.view_pngme_helper)
        initSDK()
    }

    private fun initSDK() {
        PngmeSdk.init(this)

        val user = UserInfo()
        user.companyName = intent.getStringExtra("companyName")
        user.userFirstName = intent.getStringExtra("userFirstName")
        user.userLastName = intent.getStringExtra("userLastName")
        user.userPhone = intent.getStringExtra("userPhone")
        user.userEmail = intent.getStringExtra("userEmail")

        // optional
        val externalId = intent.getStringExtra("externalId");
        if (externalId != null) {
            user.externalId = externalId;
        }

        PngmeSdk.registerUser(user)
        PngmeSdk.start(onComplete = :: onComplete, onError = :: onError, onCloseDialog = :: closeDialog )
    }

    private fun closeDialog() {
        setResult(RESULT_SDK_ON_CLOSE_DIALOG)
        this.finish()
    }

    private fun onComplete() {
        setResult(RESULT_SDK_ON_COMPLETE_OK)
        this.finish()
    }

    private fun onError(errorMessage: String) {
        setResult(RESULT_SDK_ON_ERROR)
        //Optional, Use it to log errors, if needed
        // DO NOT FINISH FROM HERE, IT WILL CRASH IF YOU DO IT
    }

}

Add wrapper to manifest

After creating PngmeSDKHelper.kt edit your AndroidManifest.xml to add this activity:

🚧

Caution

As above, change com.example.my_app to your app's correct path structure

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.example.my_app">

    
    <application
        android:name="io.flutter.app.FlutterApplication"
        android:label="my_app"
        ...>
        <activity
            android:name=".MainActivity"
            android:launchMode="singleTop"
            ...>
            ........More boilerplate code
        </activity>

        <!-- Add code from here -->
         <activity android:name="com.example.my_app.PngmeSDKHelper" android:theme="@style/Theme.AppCompat.NoActionBar" />
        <!-- To here --> 
    
        ...
    </application>
</manifest>

Main Activity

Navigate to your Android MainActivity.kt and add some magical code to call the already created PngmeSDKHelper.kt;

To expose a method to Flutter, we use Flutter channels: https://flutter.dev/docs/development/platform-integration/platform-channels

Edit your main activity to look like the code below:

As above, change com.example.my_app to your app's correct path structure

In the above code, a channel name is defined by a client will where you 'listen' and wait for calls. Then a method is defined and named OpenSDK.

Remember that the Pngme SDK asks for user permissions once and then (so long as permissions continue to be granted) sends SMS silently in the background. There is no need to open the Pngme SDK again.

Calling a Method from Flutter

We have created a "com.flutter.pngme/sdk" channel and defined "OpenSDK" function in MainActivity.kt, now let's call it from Flutter.

Within the Flutter file, add the following import:

import 'package:flutter/services.dart';

Now you are able to define the channel:

static const platform = MethodChannel('com.flutter.pngme/sdk');

void openSDK() async {
    String value;
    try {
      value = await platform.invokeMethod("OpenSDK", <String, dynamic>{
        'companyName': 'Your company name',
        'clientKey': 'Your Client key',
        // Data from clients
        'userFirstName': 'Name',
        'userLastName': 'LastName',
        'userPhone': '878792132',
        'userEmail': '[email protected]',
      });
      print(value);
    } catch (e) {
      print(e);
    }
  }

Information

Note: Parameter, channel and method names are defined as Magic strings for documentation purposes. Another option is to move it to a file with constant variables.

Run your app to see the Pngme permission screen when the OpenSDK method is called.
