Getting Started

Add this to your app's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  float_column: ^1.0.2

Usage

Then you have to import the package with:

import 'package:float_column/float_column.dart';

And use FloatColumn where appropriate. For example:

FloatColumn(
  children: const [
    Floatable(
      float: FCFloat.start,
      padding: EdgeInsets.only(right: 8),
      child: _Box(Text('Box 1')),
    ),
    Floatable(
      float: FCFloat.end,
      clear: FCClear.both,
      clearMinSpacing: 20,
      padding: EdgeInsets.only(left: 8),
      child: _Box(Text('Box 2')),
    ),
    WrappableText(text: 'This text will wrap around the floated widgets...'),
  ],
),
