LeakCanary Plugin Setup

Ensure that you already have an explicit dependency in your application's build.gradle including the plugin dependency, e.g.

dependencies {  debugImplementation 'com.facebook.flipper:flipper-leakcanary2-plugin:0.101.0'  debugImplementation 'com.squareup.leakcanary:leakcanary-android:2.6'}

Update your the onCreate method in you Application to add the LeakCanary2 plugin to Flipper and the Flipper listener to LeakCanary

import com.facebook.flipper.plugins.leakcanary2.FlipperLeakListenerimport com.facebook.flipper.plugins.leakcanary2.LeakCanary2FlipperPlugin
...
  override fun onCreate() {    super.onCreate()    setupFlipper()
    /*    set the flipper listener in leak canary config    */    LeakCanary.config = LeakCanary.config.copy(        onHeapAnalyzedListener = FlipperLeakListener()    )
    SoLoader.init(this, false)
    if (BuildConfig.DEBUG && FlipperUtils.shouldEnableFlipper(this)) {      val client = AndroidFlipperClient.getInstance(this)      /*      add leak canary plugin to flipper      */      client.addPlugin(LeakCanary2FlipperPlugin())      client.start()    }  }

That's it!
