Your First Flutter App: The Flutter Widgets Explorer
Happy new year 2021!
If you found a third party widget which seems good fit to your application, I think the first thing you do is create a dedicated flutter application to test out the widget and get yourself familiar with the widget before integrate it to your existing application, right? I will do the same. But there’s more and more widgets I need to test out along the way, projects created test out each widget will grow quickly and become unmanageable.
I think “What if I create a project that allows me to test the new widget without creating new Flutter project? How nice if I just need to create a new dart file to test out the new widget?” Hence, the born of the Flutter Widgets Explorer project.
The Flutter Widgets Explorer project is created to learn, test and demo flutter widgets. You can show case all your widgets in one Flutter application like the following screen:
