A flutter plugin that helps to get date of the app installation

How to use:

late String installDate;
// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch 
try {
    final DateTime date = await AppInstallDate().installDate;
    installDate = date.toString();
} catch (e, st) {
    installDate = 'Failed to load install date';

How it works


On android it is using the PackageManager to get install date from the package info

IOS and MacOS

On these platforms it is using application document directory's creation date. This method is also used in native development
