I revamped this package so that now, the engine will be compiled on demand by packages using it and cached in the user cache directory (~/.cache/flutter-engine). It will be cached per version, so it will be the user's responsibility to clean it once in a while.

My package will try to detect the version of the engine used, but packages can also define the variable _engine_version to specify which version to use.

See package localsend for an example on how to use.

This package will compile the flutter engine from source, which can take a lot of time and memory. Use flutter-engine-google-bin if you want to use pre-compiled binaries from Google.

It is meant to be a make dependency.

@Freso It's possible but I wouldn't recommend it and I opted not to since it's not stable enough. It would be too difficult to maintain and make sure an update doesn't break an app. This method make sure it doesn't break apps and apps can use the version they need.

I’m not familiar with how flutter-engine works, but is there no way to actually build/compile a binary and install it system wide via the package instead of doing this script to have users install it under their $HOME?

I reverted the version back to 3.13.9, can you try again with that version?

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by switching back to a branch.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -c with the switch command. Example:

  git switch -c <new-branch-name>

Or undo this operation with:

  git switch -
