Version: v3


StreamChatCore is a version of StreamChat found in stream_chat_flutter that is decoupled from theme and initialisations.

StreamChatCore is used to provide information about the chat client to the widget tree. This Widget is used to react to life cycle changes and system updates. When the app goes into the background, the web socket connection is automatically closed and when it goes back to foreground the connection is opened again.

Like the StreamChat widget in the higher level UI package, the StreamChatCore widget should be on the top level before using any Stream functionality:

return MaterialApp(
title: 'Stream Chat Core Example',
home: HomeScreen(),
builder: (context, child) => StreamChatCore(
client: client,
child: child!,
