Solved: MissingPluginException while using plugin for flutter

Question

Asked by Tree on May 22, 2018 (source).

I am trying to use the plugin

_launchURL(url) async {
  await launch("www.google.com");
}

I have put "www.google.com" just for debugging purposes.

The error I get is MissingPluginException :

restarting the app from ide doesn't work.

Answer

Question answered by Mohit N (source).

If you are using hot restart or hot reload, it won't do the trick. Since Flutter has to inject plugin dependencies into the platform-specific parts of your app, hot restart/hot reload is not enough to trigger the injection. Check this issue for more.

Close the app and execute flutter run command.
