Flutter IntelliJ plugin v18: Android Studio support

Android Studio support

You can now install the Flutter plugin into Android Studio, and create, edit, and run your Flutter apps there. The plugin requires at least Android Studio 3.0 (currently at Android Studio 3.0 Preview beta 7). As this is the first Flutter plugin release to support Android Studio it should be considered beta; your feedback will help us improve the integration.



Improved support for developing and consuming Flutter plugins

For this release we worked on improving the support for developing and consuming Flutter plugins. In addition to minor fixes and workflow improvements, we show referenced Flutter plugins in the ‘External Libraries’ part of the project view. From here, it’s easy to dig into the native iOS and Android implementations of a plugin, if desired.


Reload on save is now the default behavior

The ‘hot reload on save’ feature is now enabled by default. When running an app, hitting save or pressing the save keyboard shortcut will trigger a hot reload. Thanks for your feedback on this feature! We fixed the few reported issues, and added a hyperlink in the analysis issues toast to open the analysis view. You can control the setting for this feature from Languages & Frameworks > Flutter > General.

Miscellaneous

In addition to bug fixes, Flutter app launches now support passing in a --flavor param and we’ve improved and reorganized the Flutter view's toolbar. You can see more details in the project plan and the changelog.
