Deeplinking in flutter

In this blog, we are going to integrate Deeplinking in Flutter. We will cover the android deep linking part in this blog. So let’s get started.

When a clicked link or programmatic request invokes a web URI intent, the Android system tries each of the following actions, in sequential order, until the request succeeds (Offical Definition of Deep Linking by Google Developers):

  1. Open the user’s preferred app that can handle the URI, if one is designated.
  2. Open the only available app that can handle the URI.
  3. Allow the user to select an app from a dialog.

In simple words, we can say that deep linking is a process in which you are getting information from a web URL and open it into apps.

Eg. Let suppose you have an eCommerce website in which you have a product URL you want that when the user clicks on it. It should be open into the android application rather than Browser. So here Deep linking comes.

We can get the information from the website URL.

Add intent filters for incoming links:

To create a link to your app content, add an intent filter that contains these elements and attribute values in your manifest:

those attributes are the most important part of setup the deep links in your android app without them you can not achieve the deep linking.


Here we have completed the Android native code.

Here we start the dart code to get the link. First, we implement a third-party library uni_links to get the link.

pubspec.yaml :

Now we show the link in text that we got from the deeplinking. Here is my main.dart file.
