Apple Maps Plugin for Flutter

Apple Maps Plugin for Flutter

apple_maps_flutter

A Flutter plugin that provides an Apple Maps widget.

The plugin relies on Flutter's mechanism for embedding Android and iOS views. As that mechanism is currently in a developers preview, this plugin should also be considered a developers preview.

This plugin was based on the google_maps_flutter plugin. Instead of reinventing the wheel it also uses the Flutter implementation of the google_maps_flutter plugin. This was also done to simplify the process of combining the google_maps_flutter plugin with apple_maps_flutter to create a cross platform implementation for Android/iOS called flutter_platform_maps.

iOS

To use this plugin on iOS you need to opt-in for the embedded views preview by adding a boolean property to the app's Info.plist file, with the key io.flutter.embedded_views_preview and the value YES. You will also have to add the key Privacy - Location When In Use Usage Description with the value of your usage description.

Android

There is no Android implementation, but there will be a package to combine apple_maps_flutter and the google_maps_flutter plugin to have the typical map implementations for Android/iOS (coming soon).

Sample Usage

class AppleMapsExample extends StatelessWidget {
  AppleMapController mapController;

  void _onMapCreated(AppleMapController controller) {
    mapController = controller;
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Column(
      mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceEvenly,
      crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.stretch,
      children: <Widget>[
        Expanded(
          child: Container(
            child: AppleMap(
              onMapCreated: _onMapCreated,
              initialCameraPosition: const CameraPosition(
                target: LatLng(0.0, 0.0),
              ),
            ),
          ),
        ),
        Row(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceEvenly,
          children: <Widget>[
            Column(
              children: <Widget>[
                FlatButton(
                  onPressed: () {
                    mapController.moveCamera(
                      CameraUpdate.newCameraPosition(
