This library provides a Dart VM service extension that is required for tests that use package:flutter_driver to drive applications from a separate process, similar to Selenium (web), Espresso (Android) and UI Automation (iOS).

The extension must be installed in the same process (isolate) with your application.

To enable the extension call enableFlutterDriverExtension early in your program, prior to running your application, e.g. before you call runApp.

Example:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter_driver/driver_extension.dart';

main() {
  enableFlutterDriverExtension();
  runApp(new ExampleApp());
}
