Solved: How to downgrade Flutter SDK (Dart 1.x)
I upgraded my Flutter SDK and now my project is broken. I need to basically revert back to a Flutter SDK which uses Dart 1.x.
I tried the following in the pubspec.yaml,
environment: sdk: ">=1.19.0 <2.0.0" flutter: "^0.1.2" dependencies: flutter: sdk: flutter
but now the project just simply doesn't build.
Running "flutter packages get" in binformed... Package binformed requires Flutter SDK version ^0.1.2 but the current SDK is 0.2.5-pre.38. pub get failed (1)
Do i need to uninstall the SDK and reinstall it?
Flutter is versioned using git. Changing the Flutter version is as simple as changing git branch.
There are 2 different ways:
flutter channel <branch>(example:
flutter channel stable)
This command is used to change between branches – usually
We can also put a specific commit id from git.
flutter downgrade <version>(example:
flutter downgrade v1.2.1)
This command will use a specific version number.
You can have the list of the available version numbers using
flutter downgrade or here
After this, run any Flutter command (such as
flutter doctor), and Flutter will take care of downloading/compiling everything required to run this version.
