Flutter IntelliJ plugin v16.0: Testing and app launching!

New testing support

We’ve added the ability to run individual Flutter tests via actions in the editor’s gutter:


And now support running Flutter’s widget tests; see https://flutter.io/testing/#widget-testing.

Project structure

We re-worked how we define Flutter project and module types in IntelliJ. This addresses a few outstanding issues and will let us more easily go into more IntelliJ based products in the future.

Launching improvements

This release sports several improvements to app launching:
  • Launch your app in profile and release modes (available via the ‘Run’ menu)
  • Start Android emulators from the device dropdown; this requires the Android AVDs to have been already created in something like Android Studio
  • Tweaks to when the run and reload buttons are enabled
