  1. BuildContext context,
  2. {bool listen = false}

Method that allows widgets to access a repository instance as long as their BuildContext contains a RepositoryProvider instance.


static T of<T>(BuildContext context, {bool listen = false}) {
  try {
    return Provider.of<T>(context, listen: listen);
  } on ProviderNotFoundException catch (e) {
    if (e.valueType != T) rethrow;
    throw FlutterError(
      RepositoryProvider.of() called with a context that does not contain a repository of type $T.

      This can happen if the context you used comes from a widget above the RepositoryProvider.

      The context used was: $context
