firebase_admob

A plugin for Flutter that supports loading and displaying banner and interstitial (full-screen) ads using the Firebase AdMob API.

Warning: This plugin is still under development, some AdMob features are not available yet and testing has been limited. Feedback and Pull Requests are welcome.

Using

Before showing an ad the plugin must be initialized with an AdMob app id:

FirebaseAdMob.instance.initialize(appId: appId);

Ads must be created with an AdMob unit id and they can include targeting information:

MobileAdTargetingInfo targetingInfo = new MobileAdTargetingInfo(
  keywords: <String>['foo', 'bar'],
  contentUrl: 'http://foo.com/bar.html',
  birthday: new DateTime.now(),
  childDirected: true,
  gender: "male", // or "female", "unknown"
);

BannerAd myBanner = new BannerAd(
  unitId: myBannerAdUnitId,
  targetingInfo: targetingInfo,
);

InterstitialAd myInterstitial = new InterstitialAd(
  unitId: myInterstitalAdUnitId,
  targetingInfo: targetingInfo,
);

Ads must be loaded before they're shown.

myBanner
  ..load() // typically this happens well before the ad is shown
  ..show();
// InterstitialAds are loaded and shown in the same way

Ads can be disposed to free up plugin resources. Disposing a banner ad that's been shown removes it from the screen. Interstitial ads can't be programatically removed from view.

Ads can be created with a MobileAdEvent listener. The listener can be used to detect when the ad has actually finished loading (or failed to load at all).

Limitations

This is just an initial version of the plugin. There are still some limitiations:

  • Banner ads always appear at the bottom of the screen, they can't be positioned or animated into view.
  • It's not possible to specify a banner ad's size.
  • There's no support for rewarded video ads or native ads
  • The existing tests are fairly rudimentary.
  • There is no API doc
  • The example should demonstrate how to show gate a route push with an interstitial ad
