WebViews in Flutter

Have you ever faced “The app needs to open safari? / The app needs to open Google Chrome?” Or do you have a payment gateway on your website & do not want it in your app?

Well, Team Flutter has made a truly super cool module that enables you to join WebViews into your Flutter application to make the majority of this usefulness conceivable.

What are WebViews in Flutter?

Flutter is an open-source application development environment & a “webview” is a program packaged within a phone app creating what is known as a hybrid application.

WebViews allow developers to embed web content into an Android application. This allows users to view websites on mobile devices without having to download the entire website first.

Utilizing a webview permits the flutter app to be developed utilizing Web advancements such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and so forth. Yet at the same time acts like a native application and can be placed in the app store. Henceforth permitting Flutter WebViews Developer to work with well-known technologies.

Let us understand Flutter WebView with an example.

We will create a simple flutter webview app where we will have a basic home screen with a button to open the URL. Follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Collect all the required packages you require for implementing the webview.
  2. Import all the necessary packages collected previously.
  3. For loading the webview, implement the required route.
  4. Once the route is implemented, add navigation.
  5. Finally, clear & refresh the cache in a flutter.

Keep the following things in mind,

  1. Flutter does not come with a default widget. But, you can accomplish this with the assistance of the library.
  2. For that, you have to import the package assigned for webview for utilizing it in the application.
  3. You will get the package from pubspec.yaml file. Add the flutter webview plugin and then click on the get package. The system will import all the required packages for you.

Following is the code for the simple flutter webview app:

Flutter WebView for iOS

Flutter WebView for iOS


In iOS, the webview widget is taken care of by the UIKit Control. In flutter webview iOS we need to make a special change in the XCode. In the file called Info. plist, there is an element called <dict>.

We need to add the following code in the <dict>:

WebViewController _controller;
initialUrl: ‘https://flutter.io’,
onWebViewCreated: (WebViewController webViewController) {
_controller = webViewController;


WebView gives us a simple method to render site pages in our application. When you begin utilizing the Flutter module, it’ll become simple to attempt other cool flutter plugins available as well.

In another case, you can hire flutter app developer who can help you build your flutter app with this WebView plugin for both Android & iOS. Also, let us know if you have any doubt regarding the same in the comments section, and we will get back to you with the solution.

Till then, Happy Fluttering!
