Cached network image

pub package

A flutter library to show images from the internet and keep them in the cache directory.

How to use

The CachedNetworkImage can be used directly or through the ImageProvider. Both the CachedNetworkImage as CachedNetworkImageProvider have minimal support for web. It currently doesn't include caching.

With a placeholder:

CachedNetworkImage(
        imageUrl: "http://via.placeholder.com/350x150",
        placeholder: (context, url) => CircularProgressIndicator(),
        errorWidget: (context, url, error) => Icon(Icons.error),
     ),

Or with a progress indicator:

CachedNetworkImage(
        imageUrl: "http://via.placeholder.com/350x150",
        progressIndicatorBuilder: (context, url, downloadProgress) => 
                CircularProgressIndicator(value: downloadProgress.progress),
        errorWidget: (context, url, error) => Icon(Icons.error),
     ),
Image(image: CachedNetworkImageProvider(url))

When you want to have both the placeholder functionality and want to get the imageprovider to use in another widget you can provide an imageBuilder:

CachedNetworkImage(
  imageUrl: "http://via.placeholder.com/200x150",
  imageBuilder: (context, imageProvider) => Container(
    decoration: BoxDecoration(
      image: DecorationImage(
          image: imageProvider,
          fit: BoxFit.cover,
          colorFilter:
              ColorFilter.mode(Colors.red, BlendMode.colorBurn)),
    ),
  ),
  placeholder: (context, url) => CircularProgressIndicator(),
  errorWidget: (context, url, error) => Icon(Icons.error),
),

How it works

The cached network images stores and retrieves files using the flutter_cache_manager.
