Flutter and Auth0

Adding a bit to the mix, here is a new Flutter plugin based on the native iOS & Android SDKs. It’s not affiliated with Auth0, just uses the official SDKs:

It was developed using the native SDKs so that upgrading to the latest bug fix versions is easy and the code is somewhat familiar to the official documentation.

Feedback, PRs, testing all welcome.

+1 for the official support

I’ve seen a lot of requests, and years of no priority from the managers.
I really understand that there are a lot of requests from other things, this is a common thing in big companies.

Why not start with community repos, getting some of the code from them, and embrace the receive of PRs from the community, so everyone will contribute with the integration, examples and documentation.
There’s a lot of interest, so with this help we can deliver something stable and quicker.
A good thing would be the auth0 team review the PRs, so you will make sure that the implementation follows your standards.

Same as everyone else is saying.

We’re currently using Auth0. But we ARE moving to flutter. If it turns out to be hard to integrate Auth0 with Flutter then it’s Auth0 that’ll lose out.

Up to Auth0, really.

Thanks for the effort, great to see the community contributing like this. I’ve informed our SDK team internally as well as the internal workgroup that’s focusing on Flutter about this.

+1 for support. I can hardly believe there is only basic community support for it even though the question was brought to your attention for over 2 years ago. I must say that my disappointment especially stems from the fact that a lot of corporate words were used that leave all of us with the same result as when the thread started: no official support…

We really do appreciate the feedback everyone is sharing here! In fact, we’ve been hard at work on getting more robust Flutter guidance out, however we want to make sure it’s on point before release. We will release on the horizon a blog post showing how to add login, logout, and retrieving user information. This is currently being externally reviewed and once that’s ready we will publish the post. Thank you for caring and bringing all the use cases and +1s to this topic, it truly has helped bring the desire of this content to life!

Can we get a confirmation that you guys are releasing flutter official plugin soon? I just don’t understand clearly what you mean by Flutter guidance. Does this mean we are getting an official plugin or are we just getting a tutorial on how to use method channel and stuff to create our own login feature?

Hi @admin40, we will actually be releasing a tutorial to help others gets started faster on adding login, logout, and retrieving user information. We feel we don’t need to release a plugin as the current existing libraries cover the user authentication workflow quite well. As always we appreciate your interest and feedback on this content once it’s published!

Thats great to hear. I only recently came upon a project that requires auth0 integration so this is great timing. Looking forward to it.

@James.Morrison Thanks for sharing this blog post. Quick question… Do you know if the approach you have documented supports Flutter for Web as well? https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/web

I’m not a Flutter dev but as far as I remember it was supposed to be mobile only for now. Can you ask that question here:

Thank you!
