In this blog, we will learn and implement file picker in flutter.

It supports single and multiple file selection and also extension filtering to pick the files. File picker allow us to select different types of files like image, video, audio, pdf, document etc.

Create a new flutter project & add flutter picker package
open pubspec.yaml file & add file_picker
then run flutter pub get command to download the package into your flutter project.
Once you have added the dependencies package succesfully, to use file_picker you need to import it.
Now, you are ready to easily pick files in the Flutter app.
For Single file: If you want to pick a single file then no need to pass allowMultiple, default value is false for allowMultiple.
For Multiple file: If you want to pick more then one file at once(multiple file picking), you need to use below code.
2. allowedExtensions: : Allow only specific extensions file to be picker.Eg: allowedExtensions: [‘jpg’, ‘pdf’, ‘png’]
After picked files using filepicker, you can read the details of file like name of file, size of file, type of file(extensions) and path of selected file.
