Published On February 1st, 2024 Engineering

We’re truly elated to let you in on our magnificent engineering milestone: the release of our Flutter chat  plugin in pub.dev supercharging in-app chat integration in under 10 minutes.

As a value-driven organization, we quite understand the heavy lifting that software development teams do to help build seamless chat, voice, and video integrations. 

In fact, in most cases, maintaining a structured repository with adept version control and minimal code intervention quite easily falls into the top bucket of challenges faced by every in-app chat developer today. 

Gauging these present-day turbulences, our product team at MirrorFly set out to simplify the process of in-app chat integration with an intuitive approach using Flutter push to talk in the first place.

Need for pub.dev:

From a development perspective, managing the appropriate version history for all releases is one of the most crucial aspects of accelerating implementation across platforms. 

Especially in terms of in-app chat integration, nitpicking the right version helps maintain a seamless integration and also paves the way for enabling planned upgrades in the future as well. 

In tune with this burgeoning demand, our team has resorted to taking full advantage of pub.dev, an open-source repository management tool supported by Google that offers a new-age platform for storing and maintaining the right version of the code, thereby simplifying the deployment of Quicken Chat on all platforms. 

Flutter Chat Plug-in in pub.dev:

This meticulous incorporation of the add-on component into the package management tool facilitates developers with quick access to a multitude of reusable components, libraries, and a channelized version control repository, thereby bringing ease to the comprehensive process of integration on the whole. 

These niche messaging features, equipped on a resilient infrastructure, built-in security aids, and flexible hosting options, pave a solid bedrock for businesses eyeing to get started with an in-app communication experience across verticals
