Building a Flutter app
codemagic.yaml, you can use Codemagic to build, test and publish Flutter apps. You can read more about how to use
codemagic.yaml and see the structure of the file here. The necessary command for building an application goes under
scripts in the overall architecture in the
codemagic.yaml file. Here are some examples for the most common Flutter builds.
Set up local properties
- echo "flutter.sdk=$HOME/programs/flutter" > "$FCI_BUILD_DIR/android/local.properties"
- flutter build apk --release
Building universal .apk(s) from existing app bundle(s) with user-specified keys
If your app settings in Codemagic have building Android App Bundles enabled, we will automatically include a script for generating a signed
app-universal.apk during the YAML export. If you are creating a YAML file from a scratch, add the following script to receive the .apk file(s):
- android-app-bundle build-universal-apk \ --bundle 'project_directory/build/**/outputs/**/*.aab' \ --ks /tmp/keystore.keystore \ --ks-pass $CM_KEYSTORE_PASSWORD \ --ks-key-alias $CM_KEY_ALIAS_USERNAME \ --key-pass $CM_KEY_ALIAS_PASSWORD
Please make sure to wrap the
--bundle pattern in single quotes. If
--bundle option is not specified, default glob pattern
**/*.aab will be used.
More information about Android code signing can be found here.
Building an unsigned application .app
- flutter build ios --debug --no-codesign
Building a signed iOS application archive .ipa
- xcode-project use-profiles - xcode-project build-ipa --workspace ios/Runner.xcworkspace --scheme Runner
- | flutter config --enable-web flutter build web --release cd build/web 7z a -r ../web.zip ./*
Testing, code signing and publishing a Flutter app
To test, code sign and publish a Flutter app:
- Testing examples for a flutter app can be found here.
- All iOS and Android applications need to be signed before release. Different script examples are available here.
- All generated artifacts can be published to external services. The available integrations currently are email, Slack, Google Play and App Store Connect. It is also possible to publish elsewhere with custom scripts. Script examples for different options are available here.
