This quick start is intended to let you quickly try using several common Cloudinary features. It doesn't necessarily employ coding best practices and the code you create here isn't intended for production.
You can perform this quick start in a code sandbox or in a clean project in the dev environment of your choice.
You can also view the completed code of this quick start in a GitHub repo and code explorer.
You may also find our Glossary helpful to understand Cloudinary-specific terminology.
In this quick start you'll learn how to start delivering your media from Cloudinary using the @cloudinary/flutter package.
To perform the steps in this quick start, you'll need:
- A Cloudinary account. If you don't have one yet, you can quickly register for free.
- Your product environment credentials. You can find your credentials in the Dashboard page of your Cloudinary Console.
- A working Flutter development environment with a supported version of Flutter.
1. Set up and configure the SDK
Install the package
@cloudinary_flutter package by adding Cloudinary as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.
Create a basic Flutter app, and in main.dart copy and paste the following:
2. Upload an image
You need to use an image in your Cloudinary product environment for the next steps. All new accounts come with sample images, so we'll be using the sample image with public ID
cld-sample for the purposes of this quick start.
If you want to try uploading an image via the Cloudinary Console, expand the following section for instructions:
uploadmethod of the Upload API, as explained in Flutter SDK image and video upload or you can use the CLI.
3. Transform and deliver the image
CldImageWidget to display the full image URL based on the specified transformation parameters:
Copy and paste the following code, under the configuration code:
docs/modelsasset, you might want to use that public ID instead of
cld-sample. If you're using an image with a public ID other than
cld-sample, make sure to update your code for the remainder of this quick start with the public ID of the image you're delivering.
4. Run your code
Run the code to see the transformed image.
