Getting started

Follow the medium article to Quickly Implement Backdrop in Flutter.

Usage

BackdropScaffold

Use BackdropScaffold instead of the standard Scaffold in your app. A backLayer and a frontLayer have to be defined for the backdrop to work.

BackdropScaffold(
  appBar: BackdropAppBar(
    title: Text("Backdrop Example"),
    actions: <Widget>[
      BackdropToggleButton(
        icon: AnimatedIcons.list_view,
      )
    ],
  ),
  backLayer: Center(
    child: Text("Back Layer"),
  ),
  frontLayer: Center(
    child: Text("Front Layer"),
  ),
)
BackdropScaffold example

To use backdrop for navigation, use the provided BackdropNavigationBackLayer as backLayer.

The BackdropNavigationBackLayer contains a property items representing the list elements shown on the back layer. The front layer has to be "manually" set depending on the current index, which can be accessed with the onTap callback.

int _currentIndex = 0;
final List<Widget> _pages = [Widget1(), Widget2()];

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return MaterialApp(
    title: 'Backdrop Demo',
    home: BackdropScaffold(
      appBar: BackdropAppBar(
        title: Text("Navigation Example"),
        actions: <Widget>[
          BackdropToggleButton(
            icon: AnimatedIcons.list_view,
          )
        ],
      ),
      stickyFrontLayer: true,
      frontLayer: _pages[_currentIndex],
      backLayer: BackdropNavigationBackLayer(
        items: [
          ListTile(title: Text("Widget 1")),
          ListTile(title: Text("Widget 2")),
        ],
        onTap: (int position) => {setState(() => _currentIndex = position)},
      ),
    ),
  );
}
BackdropNavigationScaffold example

Accessing underlying backdrop functionalities

To access backdrop related functionalities, use Backdrop.of(context) to get underlying BackdropScaffoldState.

BackdropScaffoldState exposes various properties and methods like:

  • properties
    • controller -> AnimationController
    • scaffoldKey -> GlobalKey<ScaffoldState>
    • isBackLayerConcealed -> bool
    • isBackLayerRevealed -> bool
  • methods
    • fling()
    • concealBackLayer()
    • revealBackLayer()

Note: Backdrop is an InheritedWidget and therefore like Scaffold.of, Theme.of and MediaQuery.of, the BuildContext context passed to Backdrop.of(context) should be of a Widget that is under the BackdropScaffold in the "widget tree". In other words, Backdrop.of called inside a widget where the BackdropScaffold is initalized will not work explicitly, since the context passed is of the widget that will build BackdropScaffold therefore above BackdropScaffold. This can be solved by either making a seperate Widget where Backdrop.of needs to be used and make it the "child" of BackdropScaffold or wrap the Backdrop.of usage around Builder widget so that the "correct" context (from Builder) is passed to Backdrop.of. This answere on SO and FWotW video on Builder gives a very good idea of how and why Builder works in later case.

For more information, check out sample code in the example directory, demo app with use-cases and code for it and API references generated by pub.dev.
