Ahhh, thanks for clarifying. Only works with packages that are accessible via the window object, which will cover most browser-based JS packages. This is by design.

Out of interest, do you have a particular use case that warrants using a JS package in Flutter?

well there was an IMEI/credit card validator that was written in JS that I needed in one of my apps. I ended up converting it to dart code and then used it, but it would have been nice if I didn't need to. JS is so mature already I don't want to reinvent wheels I don't need to.

Oh right, got you. I tried a quick search on Pub that brought me across these two:

Haven't tried it myself, but would those have worked for your use case?

Awesome Jonathan! I'm glad you contributed in this way. I count this a victory. This also has the added benefit of not needing any JS interop, which helps with performance. Now I know where to look should I need credit card validation ;)
