Flutter: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource

Issue

I have created REST GET API using python Flask and it’s code is below

app  Flask(__name__)

@app.route("/youtube")
def firstGetAPI():

    try:
        url  request.args.get('url')
        print(f'URL is {url}')
        res  "Success"
        response  flask.Response(res)
        response.headers.set('Access-Control-Allow-Origin', '*')
        response.headers.set('Access-Control-Allow-Headers', 'Content-Type,Authorization')
        response.headers.set('Access-Control-Allow-Methods', 'GET,PUT,POST,DELETE,OPTIONS')
        return response, 200
    except Exception as e:
        response  {"status":"Fail", "message":str(e)}
        return json.dumps(response)

if __name__  "__main__":
    app.run(host'0.0.0.0', debugTrue, port8080)

Now on Frontend side the Flutter code is below

child: ElevatedButton(
                child: const Text('Download'),
                onPressed: () async {
                  var header  {
                    'Access-Control-Allow-Origin': '*',
                    "Accept": "application/json"
                  };

                  var url  Uri.parse(
                      'http://192.168.2.237:8080/youtube?urlwww.google.com');

                  print('URL is : ${url}');
                  var response  await http.get(url, headers: header);
                  print('Response status: ${response.statusCode}');
                  print('Response body: ${response.body}');
                },
              ),

I have run this on Chrome Browser but I am always getting an error like below

     URL is : http://192.168.2.237:8080/youtube?urlwww.google.com
:49831/#/:1 Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'http://192.168.2.237:8080/youtube?urlwww.google.com'
 from origin 'http://localhost:49831' has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight

browser_client.dart:74 GET http://192.168.2.237:8080/youtube?urlwww.google.com net::ERR_FAILED

Sorry as I have no idea if this is problem with Python or Flutter, I have combined both code over here, Thanks

Solution

1st option

1- Go to flutter\bin\cache and remove a file named: flutter_tools.*

2- Go to flutter\packages\flutter_tools\lib\src\web and open the file chrome.dart.

3- Find ‘–disable-extensions’

4- Add ‘–disable-web-security’

2nd option

add header in python code header(‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’, ‘*’)

Enable access control on simple HTTP server
