Watch the plugin in action!

Getting started

1. Load the plugin

To provide a nice and fast user experience awsome stickers will get cached to device, to do so we use objectbox (will switch to something else probably as it is quite heavy dependency).

So in your main.dart file add the following import:

import 'package:awesome_stickers/cache/cache.dart';


void main() async {
  WidgetsFlutterBinding.ensureInitialized(); // add this line if it isn't here at the beggining of main()
  await prepareCache(); // add this line before runApp
  runApp(const MyApp());

2. Searching for emojis!

Each (currently only EmojiKitchen) provider have it's own .search() method to find the right sticker to suggest. As a search query you should provide entire message that was written by user or a emoji/text (assuming you are writting a chat app)

import 'package:awesome_stickers/emoji_picker.dart';
import 'package:awesome_stickers/emojiprovider/class.dart';

var Emoji? emoji;

    msgString: searchQuery,
    callback: (newEmoji) {
        setState(() {
            emoji = newEmoji;

This widget will be 128 px tall if there are any results or 0 px tall if there are none, so you don't need to worry about it too much.

as for callback - this code will get executed after user have picked one of emojis.

3. Displaying emoji

There's nothing easier than displaying an emoji! Assuming that emoji is of type Emoji you can do the following to display the emoji:


Code above will display the emoji in a 32x32 square!
