Crashlytics Integration

If you’re using Crashlytics for crash reporting, it will work out-of-the-box with Shorebird releases and patches. However, if you have multiple patches, it can be unclear which patch caused the crash. This document shows how you can use Crashlytics to differentiate between patches.

Add the shorebird_code_push package to your project.

shorebird_code_push is available on and lets you programmatically determine your app’s current patch number. To add it to your project, follow the instructions on the package’s page.

Configure Crashlytics

If you haven’t already, follow the Crashlytics getting started with Flutter guide.

Update the Firebase init code to include the patch number as a custom key. This will look something like:

Future<void> main() async {
await Firebase.initializeApp(
options: DefaultFirebaseOptions.currentPlatform,
final patchNumber = await ShorebirdCodePush().currentPatchNumber();
// Add the patch number as a tag. You can use whatever name you would like
// as the key. `$patchNumber` will be "null" if there is no patch. You may
// wish to handle this case differently.
runApp(const MyApp());
