An Android implementation of camera that uses the CameraX library.

Note: This package is under development, so please note the missing features and limitations, but otherwise feel free to try out the current implementation and provide any feedback by filing issues under flutter/flutter with [camerax] in the title, which will be actively triaged.


This package is non-endorsed; the endorsed Android implementation of camera is camera_android. To use this implementation of the plugin instead of camera_android, you will need to specify it in your pubsepc.yaml file as a dependency in addition to camera:

  # ...along with your other dependencies
  camera: ^0.10.4
  camera_android_camerax: ^0.5.0
