I am using adhara socket io with flutter to build a socket app. https://pub.dartlang.org/packages/adhara_socket_io The socket connects successfully but not listening or emitting any data to the events I have. I tested from a web client everything works perfectly.

This is the example code provided by the library that I'm using:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:convert';
import 'package:adhara_socket_io/adhara_socket_io.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

const String URI = "http://172.25.1.206:6001/";

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  List<String> toPrint = ["trying to conenct"];
  SocketIOManager manager;
  SocketIO socket;
  bool isProbablyConnected = false;

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    manager = SocketIOManager();
    initSocket();
  }

  initSocket() async {
    setState(() => isProbablyConnected = true);
    socket = await manager.createInstance(
      //Socket IO server URI
        URI,
        //Query params - can be used for authentication
        query: {
          "auth": "--SOME AUTH STRING---",
          "info": "new connection from adhara-socketio"
        },
        //Enable or disable platform channel logging
        enableLogging: false
    );
    socket.onConnect((data) {
      pprint("connected...");
      pprint(data);
      sendMessage();
    });
    socket.onConnectError(pprint);
    socket.onConnectTimeout(pprint);
    socket.onError(pprint);
    socket.onDisconnect(pprint);
    socket.on("ExampleEvent", (data) {
      pprint("news");
      pprint(data);
    });
    socket.connect();
  }

  disconnect(){
    manager.clearInstance(socket);
    setState(() => isProbablyConnected = false);
  }

  sendMessage() {
    if (socket != null) {
      pprint("sending message...");
      socket.emit("ExampleEvent", [
        "Hello world!",
        1908,
        {
          "wonder": "Woman",
          "comics": ["DC", "Marvel"]
        },
        {
          "test": "=!./"
        },
        [
          "I'm glad",
          2019,
          {
            "come back": "Tony",
            "adhara means": ["base", "foundation"]
          },
          {
            "test": "=!./"
          },
        ]
      ]);
      pprint("Message emitted...");
    }
  }

  pprint(data) {
    setState(() {
      if (data is Map) {
        data = json.encode(data);
      }
      print(data);
      toPrint.add(data);
    });
  }

You can try out below library. I tried to subscribe to channels and listen to events and it works well.

If you are using Android Studio emulator then use http://10.0.2.2:7000 as URI (change port according to your localhost eg. 3000 or 3001). The above URI helps in getting your actual device (your computer) local host. I have tried this and is successfully working with Adhara_socket_io.
