Animations in Flutter are awesome. Starting from a simple idea, the framework evolves this idea into objects that can be chained and composited to make jaw dropping animations. But, there is a lot of information to grasp, so, I want to start a new series of articles centered on the use of the Flutter animations. We will start with the simplest concepts and move to awesomeness step by step.
After a while struggling on how to continue and how to put all the things I wanted to explain together I have decided to follow the KISSS methodolgy (Keep It Simple, Stupid Sergi) and continue with a simpler example. As the Planets tutorial was focused on UI, I didn’t want to include Stateful Widgets. Decided, we will continue with the planet detail screen.
In the previous article we saw how to create a custom App bar without using the class
Appbar in order to make easier to get a gradient background and a centered title.
Next step is to create the Widget that we will use to create the list of planets. Today we will work on a hard-coded item, to be able to transform it into a list of elements in the future.
Flutter is the new, shiny and cool way to write apps for Android and iOS.
I felt in love with Flutter during the Android Developer Days in Krakow, and I’ve decided to start a set of samples on how to create Flutter apps from a design.
I’ve spent several days playing with it, aaaand, this is the result.
