fl_toast

A simple yet powerful Toast Library for Flutter

Features

✔️ Easy-to-use - Made for new and advanced developers
✔️ Animations - Supports any kind of animation
✔️ Made Fully in flutter - No need to use platform channels to show toasts

Usage

context in all show toast methods are required and can't be null, otherwise an AssertionError is thrown.

Basic usage

import 'package:flutter_toast/flutter_toast.dart';

/// Shows a plaftform-styled toast with a text.
await showTextToast(
  text: 'My Awesome Toast',
  context: context,
);

Show the platform-styled toast

You can use showPlatformToast to show the toast that best fits the running platform. Shows an AndroidToast in Android and Fuchsia. Shows a StyledToast in the other platforms.

await showPlatformToast(
  child: Text('My Platform Toast'),
  context: context,
);
await showAndroidToast(
  child: Text('My awesome Android Toast'),
  context: context,
);

Multi-toasts

You can use showMultiToast to show multiple toasts at the same time.

await showMultiToast(
  toasts: [
    Toast(child: Text('Toast 1')),
    Toast(child: Text('Toast 2')),
  ],
  context: context,
);

You can use showSequencialToasts to show one toast after another. The duration of the toasts can NOT be null.

await showSequencialToasts(
  toasts: [
    Toast(child: Text('First toast'), duration: Duration(seconds: 2)),
    Toast(child: Text('Second toast'), duration: Duration(seconds: 1)),
  ],
  context: context,
);

Animations

You can highly customize the animation by setting animationBuilder. The default animation is a FadeTransition. The following snippet animate the toast with a scale transition.

await showStyledToast(
  child: Text('Styled toast with custom scale animation'),
  context: context,
  animationBuilder: (context, animation, child) {
    return ScaleTransition(
      scale: animation,
      child: child,
    );
  }
);

Flutter already has a set of pre-built transitions for you to use. They are:

  • FadeTransition (default)
  • ScaleTransition
  • SlideTransition
  • RotationTransition
  • SizeTransition
  • AlignTransition

You can combine multilpe transitions to build the best experience to the user:

await showPlatformToast(
  child: Text('Platform toast with multiple custom animations'),
  context: context,
  animationBuilder: (context, animation, child) {
    return ScaleTransition(
      scale: animation,
      child: RotationTransition(
        turns: animation,
        child: child,
      ),
    );
  }
);

You can even use the animations package. We're gonna be using FadeScaleTransition

import 'package:animations/animations.dart';

await showStyledToast(
  child: Text('Styled toast using animations package'),
  context: context,
  animationBuilder: (context, animation, child) {
    return FadeScaleTransition(
      animation: animation,
      child: child,
    );
  }
);

If none of the animations above have satisfied you, you can create your own implicit animations.

Cookbook

Learn how to create beautiful toasts.

Snackbar

The snippet below shows how to create a beautiful toast that act like a Snackbar. It's useful when you don't have a parent Scaffold avaiable to show a proper snackbar.

According to the Material Design Guidelines:

They (Snackbars) automatically disappear from the screen after a minimum of 4 (four) seconds, and a maximum of 10 (ten) seconds.

Snackbars can span the entire width of a UI. However, they should not appear in front of navigation or other important UI elements like floating action buttons.

showToast(
  interactive: true,
  padding: EdgeInsets.zero,
  alignment: Alignment(0, 1),
  /// The duration the toast will be on the screen
  duration: Duration(seconds: 4),
  /// The duration of the animation
  animationDuration: Duration(milliseconds: 200),
  /// Animate the toast to show up from the bottom 
  animationBuilder: (context, animation, child) {
    return SlideTransition(
      child: child,
      position: Tween<Offset>(
        begin: Offset(0, 1),
        end: Offset(0, 0),
      ).animate(CurvedAnimation(
        parent: animation,
        curve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn,
      )),
    );
  },
  child: Dismissible(
    key: ValueKey<String>('Snackbar'),
    direction: DismissDirection.down,
    child: Material(
      elevation: Theme.of(context)?.snackBarTheme?.elevation ?? 6.0,
      child: Container(
        width: double.infinity,
        padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 24, vertical: 14),
        color: Color(0xFF323232),
        child: Text('My Awesome Snackbar', style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white)),
      ),
    ),
  ),
  context: context,
);

Drawer

1. Create the ToastDrawer Widget.

It will be responsible by handling the dismiss color animation.

class ToastDrawer extends StatefulWidget {
  const ToastDrawer({
    Key key,
    @required this.onCloseRequested,
    @required this.content,
  }) : super(key: key);

  final Function onCloseRequested;
  final Widget content;

  @override
  _ToastDrawerState createState() => _ToastDrawerState();
}

class _ToastDrawerState extends State<ToastDrawer> {
  final key = GlobalKey<ToastState>();
  final animDuration = Duration(milliseconds: 246);
  Color backgroundColor = Colors.black54;

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Stack(
      children: [
        Positioned.fill(
          child: GestureDetector(
            onTap: () async {
              setState(() => backgroundColor = Colors.transparent);
              await key.currentState.dismissToastAnim();
              widget.onCloseRequested();
            },
            child: AnimatedContainer(
              duration: animDuration,
              curve: Curves.ease,
              color: backgroundColor,
            ),
          ),
        ),
        Positioned.fill(
          child: Toast(
            key: key,
            // Duration needs to be null, otherwise the toast will be in the screen
            // but the reverse animation will be called.
            duration: null,
            alignment: Alignment.topLeft,
            animationDuration: animDuration,
            animationBuilder: (context, animation, child) {
              return SlideTransition(
                position: Tween<Offset>(
                  begin: Offset(-1, 0),
                  end: Offset(0, 0),
                ).animate(CurvedAnimation(
                  parent: animation,
                  curve: Curves.ease,
                )),
                child: child,
              );
            },
            child: Dismissible(
              key: ValueKey(1),
              direction: DismissDirection.endToStart,
              onDismissed: (_) => widget.onCloseRequested(),
              child: Material(
                elevation: 8,
                child: Container(
                  width: MediaQuery.of(context).size.width * 0.75,
                  height: double.infinity,
                  // color: Colors.white,
                  child: widget.content,
                ),
              ),
            ),
          ),
        ),
      ],
    );
  }
}

2. Open the drawer

Open the drawer using a persistent toast. A persistent toast is a toast that will only dismiss when asked so.

Note: Don't forget to set duration: null in Toast, otherwise the toast will leave the screen but won't be dismissed

void openDrawer(Widget content) async {
  OverlayEntry entry;
  entry = showPersistentToast(
    context: context,
    toast: ToastDrawer(
      onCloseRequested: () => ToastManager.dismiss(entry),
      content: content,
    ),
  );
}

Advanced usage

Dismiss a toast programatically

To dismiss all the toasts in the screen, use ToastManager.dismissAll(). To dismiss a toast programatically, you can just call ToastManager.dismiss(entry). The only way to get the entry of a toast is to using showPersitentToast.

To dismiss with animation, you'll need a GlobalKey to access the toast state. The snippet below shows you how to do so:

final toastKey = GlobalKey<ToastState>();

final entry = showPersistentToast(
  context: context,
  toast: Toast(
    key: toastKey,
    duration: null,
  ),
);

Future.delayed(Duration(milliseconds: 250), () async {
  await toastKey.currentState?.dismissToastAnim();
  ToastManager.dismiss(entry);
});
