It would be very useful to have Flutter integration, to integrate for apps developed using Google's new framework (https://flutter.io/).

@amitkot while this Idea is still in review and we do not have an official Flutter SDK, I wanted to share a wrapper on GH that could help. Please note that this is from a third party and if you decided to implement this,  there is limited support on this if you run into any issues with Mixpanel. 

Another route would be to create your own SDK using our http spec. Please note that this will require engineering resources.

Hello, Stephanie.

Another alternative is https://pub.dev/packages/flutuate_mixpanel

;)

There are a few different community plugins for Mixpanel integration on https://pub.dev/ :

  1. https://pub.dev/packages/mixpanel_analytics - A dart wrapper on the Mixpanel REST API to be used in Flutter applications. As this is using the http REST API it works both with Android and iOS.
  2. https://pub.dev/packages/dart_mixpanel - Great Native package provides similar bindings for iOS and Android, but doesn't yet support Offline and Batched data reporting.
  3. https://pub.dev/packages/native_mixpanel - Uses Native SDKs to integrate Mixpanel but not so well documented & scored.
  4. https://pub.dev/packages/nat_mixpanel - Another Native-based library, only works on Android.


Would be great to have official support for Flutter soon.

Hi @amitkot ,

We’re wondering how the Mixpanel ↔ Flutter integration went using the above alternative packages. Do you mind sharing some insights about the integration? We’re also developing an app in Dart & Flutter and trying to implement Mixpanel with our app.

Also agree with @mayurdhurpate on having official support for Flutter apps.

For example, I wish to integrate new Mixpanel Notification Panel in Flutter. Now the package could have easily handled some of the config on iOS. I’ve created an issue(https://github.com/truenary/native_mixpanel/issues/16#issue-578746381) in one of the community packages, and waiting for progress on that. A official Mixpanel package would have solved many issues.

@Tina @mayurdhurpate Thank you both for also submitting the need for a Flutter app integration! We filed a product gap on your behalf with our Engineering and Design team for review.

Any progress on this front? Flutter is wildly popular, I am surprised by the lack of a package.

I also need an official Flutter solution. In the meantime how can I implement Tweaks? I couldn’t see anything obvious in the http spec

We also need an official Flutter solution. Building an own bridge between the native Android and iOS SDK is a source of many issues. Other third-party solutions are not reliable.

+1, we need official full-scale Flutter support.

Any progress? 

My biggest concern about using one of the pub.dev packages is keeping up with changes as mixpanel grows. Is there a plan to officially support Flutter? Google has added pretty granular event tracking through firebase, but I love the mixpanel visualizations and would much rather stay here. Any updates or plans you can share?
