Debugging Integration Tests

Note: this is quite old now and I haven't had a chance to test if it still works yet.

With Android Studio 

Hot Reload For Flutter Integration Tests 

  • Needed to add --disable-service-auth-codes 

  • Port may need to be 8888 - I had tried using 8889 and was having problems, could have been coincidence that changing to 8888 fixed the problem

My setup that worked: 

with VSCode 

See also Toolchain > IDEs > VSCode

Added a macro using this extension that restarts the app and opens the debug options

"macros": {
       "restartIntegrationTest": [

And a keyboard shortcut that uses the macro 

  "key": "cmd+d",
  "command": "macros.restartIntegrationTest"

This allows me to wait till the restart finishes then hit enter to launch my Driver config - around 2-3 seconds wait vs. 15-20 for flutter driver from command line and more importantly, allows debugging


Flutter Driver currently has no way to interact with UI from plugins (eg. signing in etc.)
