How to create publisher account on | Complete Guide

If you are a developer who is looking to publish your Flutter packages, then you should definitely create a publisher account on 

Let us first understand what is? is by its own definition, "The official package repository for Dart and Flutter apps". is the official site for Flutter packages, and it is also where developers can search for and discover new packages.

It is the home of thousands of libraries/packages which eases the development efforts of Dart and Flutter developers.

Anybody who has a useful package for Dart and Flutter apps can publish them.

If a developer publishes a package without creating a publisher account, their personal email address will be visible on the package details page.

So, by having a publisher account, one can avoid exposing their personal email address.

A publisher badge will also be shown next to the package name. This helps you promote your domain name and professional email address as well.

Having a publisher account on also makes it easier for other developers to find and use your packages. 

This is because your packages will be listed in the search results, and they will also be featured on your publisher profile page.

So if you want to make it easy for others to find and use your Flutter packages, then create a publisher account on
