Floating TabBar

The floating_tabbar package for Flutter allows you to use the responsive design for all platforms made from the Material Design System.

Getting started

Import the package and use it in your Flutter App.

import 'package:floating_tabbar/floating_tabbar.dart';
  • This is Floating TabBar widget.
  • To use this there must be minimum two items.
  • You get TabBar floating and a PageView with it.
  • And with isFloating = false you'll get normal TabBar PageView
  • Support for all device sizes.

Add themes

// floating_tabbar is now light and dark theme compatible.
// Add basic themes to your app, so that floating_tabbar could glow in both light and dark themes.
MaterialApp(
  themeMode: ThemeMode.system,
  theme: ThemeData(
    primaryColor: Colors.blue,
    brightness: Brightness.light,
    canvasColor: Colors.grey[50],
  ),
  darkTheme: ThemeData(
    primaryColor: Colors.blue,
    brightness: Brightness.dark,
    canvasColor: const Color.fromARGB(255, 37, 37, 37),
  ),
),
