Flutter – Quick Start

To get the SDK loaded and running, you’ll need to:
  1. Install the Flutter Bluedot Point SDK plugin
  2. Initialize the SDK

1. Install the Flutter Bluedot Point SDK plugin

Run this command:

With Dart:

 $ dart pub add bluedot_point_sdk

Or with Flutter:

 $ flutter pub add bluedot_point_sdk

This will add a line like this to your package’s pubspec.yaml (and run an implicit dart pub get):

  bluedot_point_sdk: ^1.0.0

Alternatively, your editor might support dart pub get or flutter pub get. Check the docs for your editor to learn more.

Import it

Now in your Dart code, you can use:

import 'package:bluedot_point_sdk/bluedot_point_sdk.dart';

2. . Initialize the SDK

Now that the project has been set up, you can import and initialize the Flutter Bluedot Point SDK plugin from your App:

The initialize method expects 1 parameter:

Paramater Type Description
projectId String The project Id you’re going to use. This can be found in the Canvas.
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:bluedot_point_sdk/bluedot_point_sdk.dart';

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {

  void initState() {

  void _initializeBluedotPointSDK() {
        .then((value) {
          // Successfully initialised Bluedot Point SDK
          debugPrint('Bluedot Point SDK has been initialized');
    }).catchError((error) {
      // Failed to initialize Bluedot Point SDK. Handle error here.
      debugPrint('Failed to initialize Bluedot Point SDK. Error: $error');


  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Container();

3. Initialize Status

You can use the isInitialized method to check the status of the SDK. It will return a boolean value.

BluedotPointSdk.instance.isInitialized().then((value) {
  debugPrint('Is Bluedot Point SDK initialized?: $value');

At this point, you’ve got the basics together, but to start receiving location events from the SDK, your need to use our Geo-triggering and/or Tempo features.
