Flutter Android SDK integration process


Step 1

To integrate Flutter Android SDK with your mobile app, please follow the below mentioned steps:
Add the Flutter Android SDK URL in your Project level build gradle file’s repositories section as shown below:
If android studio version less than Android Studio Arctic Fox
In project build.gradle, you can add the repositories
allprojects {
repositories {
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
maven { url 'https://maven.google.com/' }
maven {
url "https://jfrog-artifact.revechat.com/artifactory/artifactory/"
In settings.gradle, you can add the repositories
dependencyResolutionManagement {
repositories {
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
maven { url 'https://maven.google.com/' }
maven {
url "https://jfrog-artifact.revechat.com/artifactory/artifactory/"

Step 2

Add Design support library and REVE Chat Android SDK as dependency in your App level build.gradle file :
dependencies {

Note- You can also use Design support library greater then 26 also according to your project build SDK version.

Step 3

Add proguard-rules.pro. Path → /android/app/proguard-rules.pro
# Add project specific ProGuard rules here.
# By default, the flags in this file are appended to flags specified
# in E:\Android_Studio\sdk/tools/proguard/proguard-android.txt
# You can edit the include path and order by changing the proguardFiles
# directive in build.gradle.
# For more details, see
# http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/proguard.html
# Add any project specific keep options here:
# If your project uses WebView with JS, uncomment the following
# and specify the fully qualified class name to the JavaScript interface
# class:
#-keepclassmembers class fqcn.of.javascript.interface.for.webview {
# public *;
-keep class com.revesoft.revechatsdk.** {*;}
-keep interface com.revesoft.revechatsdk.** { *; }
-keep enum com.revesoft.revechatsdk.** { *; }
-dontwarn com.revesoft.revechatsdk.**
-keep class org.webrtc.** { *; }
-keep class org.webrtc.voiceengine.** { *; }
-dontwarn org.webrtc.**

Step 4

Add following lines from where you want to start the chat. However, this step needs to be done differently for JAVA or KOTLIN in separate ways.
Code for JAVA
// Initializing with account id
ReveChat.init("account id");
// Creating visitor info
VisitorInfo visitorInfo = new VisitorInfo.Builder()
.name("your name")
.phoneNumber("your number")
// Set visitor info
// Optional
// If want to Receive push notification from Reve Chat.
// Add your device token id(registration Id)
// You also need to do step 4.
//starting chat window
startActivity(new Intent(this, ReveChatActivity.class));

Code for KOTLIN
//Initializing with account id
ReveChat.init("account id")
//Creating visitor info
val visitorInfo: VisitorInfo = VisitorInfo.Builder()
.name("your name")
.phoneNumber("your number")
//Set visitor info
//If want to Receive push notification from Reve Chat.
//Add your device token id(registration Id)
//You also need to do step 4.
//starting chat window
startActivity(Intent(this, ReveChatActivity::class.java))

Step 5
