flutter clean flutter pub get flutter pub add flutter_native_splash
Setup & Design Flutter Native Splash
We have to add all the code in the pubspec.yaml file because we have to make changes in the root directories of Android and IOS. Therefore, we cannot make changes in the system using dart files.
flutter_native_splash as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.
dependencies: flutter_native_splash: ^2.2.8
Don’t forget to
flutter pub get.
Customize the following settings and add to your project’s
pubspec.yaml file or place in a new file in your root project folder named
# flutter_native_splash-development.yaml flutter_native_splash: color: "#ffffff" image: assets/logo-development.png branding: assets/branding-development.png color_dark: "#121212" image_dark: assets/logo-development.png branding_dark: assets/branding-development.png android_12: image: assets/logo-development.png icon_background_color: "#ffffff" image_dark: assets/logo-development.png icon_background_color_dark: "#121212" web: false # flutter_native_splash-acceptance.yaml flutter_native_splash: color: "#ffffff" image: assets/logo-acceptance.png branding: assets/branding-acceptance.png color_dark: "#121212" image_dark: assets/logo-acceptance.png branding_dark: assets/branding-acceptance.png android_12: image: assets/logo-acceptance.png icon_background_color: "#ffffff" image_dark: assets/logo-acceptance.png icon_background_color_dark: "#121212" web: false # flutter_native_splash-production.yaml flutter_native_splash: color: "#ffffff" image: assets/logo-production.png branding: assets/branding-production.png color_dark: "#121212" image_dark: assets/logo-production.png branding_dark: assets/branding-production.png android_12: image: assets/logo-production.png icon_background_color: "#ffffff" image_dark: assets/logo-production.png icon_background_color_dark: "#121212" web: false
After adding your settings, run the following command in the terminal:
flutter pub run flutter_native_splash:create
When the package finishes running, your splash screen is ready.
To specify the YAML file location just add –path with the command in the terminal:
flutter pub run flutter_native_splash:create --path=path/to/my/file.yaml
