We are going to want to have support for maps in Sky.

There are a few ways we might go about doing this:

  1. Use native maps widget for each platform to render the map
  2. Use maps widget for each platform to render to a texture and draw the map ourselves
  3. Develop a custom maps SDK for Sky

The second option would be ideal but may not be possible. We should investigate which approach is best and build a demo app.

We might need this for the Fitness app, depending.

This is presumably going to be a "third-party" component, right?

We'll almost certainly want to use some non-Dart SDK to provide Maps support, so yes.

We expect developers will use Maps by using a "native" iOS or Android maps view, per:

I don't see in this doc descriptions of how to integrate native widget (like Maps) into your flutter apps. Have I missed something ?

Sorry, I may have been a bit overzealous in my linking. Said doc is pre-work for Flutter to participate as a normal View inside Obj-C/Java applications. The path to add other Obj-C/Java code to them is not yet documented, no.

As a developer i really want to use the native Google Maps component to render inside my flutter app. I just created a flutter app and this is kind of a blocker. The only solution is to build it in Java/Android and open it when clicking a flutter button.

Ideally I would like a 'NativeView' in flutter, which renders a native widget inside flutter.
This is probably quite difficult because you have merge rendering / events into the flutter rendering engine.

It also goes against the flutter 'one widget for both platforms'. However, sometimes complex widgets (like a map) are really something you want to reuse.

Hello ! I would love to know the roadmap of this feature, or even if one even exists. I have two mobile apps in the works and both rely heavily on a map. I love Dart, and I'm looking for an excuse to try Flutter.

The solution with FlutterView looks overly complicated, from the point of view of a rookie who has never written a single line of Flutter. The other solutions do not suit my need, I need a fully interactive map.

I don't know how hairy that is to implement in Flutter, nor if you even plan to implement it someday. Any info would be appreciated. I guess the resolution of this issue will be my signal to start development with Flutter.

Is there any chance maps will be implemented in 2017? I love Dart and would like very much to use Flutter, but I really need non-static maps, like showing points of interest nearby and showing the description upon the click on the point.

First of all I (fulltime Android dev) love flutter and the progress that is made the last months is impressive. That said, I think this issue is a pretty big blocker for a lot of people that are willing to migrate their business in the future.

I'm currently doing a case study for the company i am working for and if a NativeView (per tjerkw's suggestion) feature exists we could use that to properly bridge the gap between the different platforms!

Yes. We've gotten that feedback consistently. It's just a question of what implementation approach we want to take and when to schedule the work.

Is there any progress on this? I've got two apps sketched that require maps and would like to make them my first Flutter app in the stores. So is this going to come out within the next few months or are we talking next year? :)
