Deep links or Universal link is the ability of your application being launch when user taps website URL and you want to open the URL in your application. We have added the ability to open property profile, when a property URL is opened on mobile.

Note: Right now application consider permalinks when it finds patterns as domain.com/property/, so make sure you are using this format in your website settings. Otherwise you can make changes to the URL supported in Android and iOS code.

Setup Application:


To setup Deep Link in app, go to Project_HOME > android > app > src > main > res > values > strings.xml file, look for scheme,host and path_prefix. Replace its value with your own scheme (http or https) and domain host.

Make sure flutter_deeplinking_enabled meta tag added in AndroidManifest.xml file:

 <meta-data android:name= "flutter_deeplinking_enabled" android:value="true" />
 <intent-filter android:autoVerify="true">
      <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
      <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
      <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />


To setup Deep Link in app for iOS go to Project_HOME > iOS > Runner > Info.plist file, look for key CFBundleURLName, replace it with your host and CFBundleURLSchemes replace it with your scheme. Example below:


Make sure FlutterDeepLinkingEnabled added in Info.plist` file:


Then go to iOS Runner.entitlements in file: PROJECT_HOME/ios/Runner/Runner.entitlements and add following line:


Replace domain.com with your domain.

Setup Server File:

  1. apple-app-site-association
  2. assetlinks.json

These files are located in your source code Project_HOME > server_files. You need to upload these files to your website root folder / .well-known directory and they must be publicly accessible like below:

https://domain.com/.well-known/apple-app-site-association https://domain.com/.well-known/assetlinks.json

Go to Project_HOME > server_files Open and Edit assetlinks.json file and enter your app package name against package_name key like below:

"package_name": "com.domain.app"

You also need to provide sha256 of your keystore.

There’re two flavour of same app in this files. One is for production sha256 and the other is for development purpose.

Apple App Site Association:

Go to Project_HOME > server_files Open and edit the apple-app-site-association file and enter your apple developer team id and app identifier against appID key like below:

"appID": "TEAM_ID_XX.com.domain.app"

That’s pretty much it, now your application should open the URL.

Note: You might need to restart the device or wait for few hours in case it is not working.
