Integrate

For simplicity the following guide is based on a boilerplate flutter app for flutter create myapp with git diff syntax for adding and removing lines from the boilerplate app.

  1. First follow the Flutter get started guides to install, set up an editor, and create a Flutter Project. The rest of this guide assumes your project is created by running flutter create myapp.

  2. Add the following dependency to your Flutter project in myapp/pubspec.yaml:

    dependencies:
       flutter:
         sdk: flutter
    +  pdftron_flutter:
    +    git:
    +      url: git://github.com/PDFTron/pdftron-flutter.git
  3. Navigate to your myapp folder and run flutter packages get.

  4. Open myapp/ios/Podfile and make these changes:

    # Uncomment this line to define a global platform for your project
    -# platform :ios, '9.0'
    +  platform :ios, "9.3"
    ...
    	target 'Runner' do
    		...
    +  # PDFTron Pods
    +  use_frameworks!
    +  pod 'PDFNet', podspec: 'https://www.pdftron.com/downloads/ios/cocoapods/pdfnet/latest.podspec'
    	end
  5. Run flutter build ios --no-codesign to ensure integration process is successful.
