The web implementation of url_launcher.


This package is endorsed, which means you can simply use url_launcher normally. This package will be automatically included in your app when you do, so you do not need to add it to your pubspec.yaml.

However, if you import this package to use any of its APIs directly, you should add it to your pubspec.yaml as usual.

Limitations on the Web platform

A launch needs to be triggered by a user action

Web browsers prevent launching URLs in a new tab/window, unless triggered by a user action (e.g. a button click).

Even if a user triggers a launch through a button click, if there is a delay due to awaiting a Future before the launch, the browser may still block it. This is because the browser might perceive the launch as not being a direct result of user interaction, particularly if the Future takes too long to complete.

In such cases, you can use the webOnlyWindowName parameter, setting it to _self, to open the URL within the current tab. Another approach is to ensure that the uri is synchronously ready.
