An IntelliJ plugin for Flutter development. Flutter is a new mobile app SDK to help developers and designers build modern mobile apps for iOS and Android.
Flutter's hot reload helps you quickly and easily experiment, build UIs, add features, and fix bugs faster. Experience sub-second reload times, without losing state, on emulators, simulators, and hardware for iOS and Android.
A brief summary of the getting started guide:
- install the Flutter SDK
flutter doctorfrom the command line to verify your installation

- IntelliJ 2017.3 or 2018.1, Community or Ultimate Edition, or

Please note the following known issues:
- When using IntelliJ 2018.2 with Android support, you'll likely hit an issue with constant re-indexing. This is an issue with the IntelliJ 2018.2 platform - you can work around it by using 2018.1, or by using the EAP version of 2018.2. The fix for this is in the EAP version, and should be available in the stable version shortly. More details are available at #2511.
- If you are building Flutter plugins using Swift, be sure you have at least
cocoapods 1.5.0installed; an issue tracking a corresponding update to
flutter doctoris: flutter/#16930.
- In Android Studio 3.1, after an application starts up, the Inspector will often still say "No running applications". The application is running; in order to see the Inspector contents for it, you need to click on the named device tab in the Inspector window. This issue is not present in IntelliJ IDEA or in later versions of Android Studio.
- #601: IntelliJ will read the PATH variable just once on startup. Thus, if you change PATH later to include the Flutter SDK path, this will not have an affect in IntelliJ until you restart the IDE.
