                return profile.name.toLowerCase().contains(query.toLowerCase()) || profile.email.toLowerCase().contains(query.toLowerCase());
            }).toList(growable: false)
                ..sort((a, b) => a.name
                    .toLowerCase()
                    .indexOf(lowercaseQuery)
                    .compareTo(b.name.toLowerCase().indexOf(lowercaseQuery)));
        } else {
            return const <AppProfile>[];
        }
    },
    onChanged: (data) {
        print(data);

            avatar: CircleAvatar(
                backgroundImage: NetworkImage(profile.imageUrl),

            key: ObjectKey(profile),
            leading: CircleAvatar(
                backgroundImage: NetworkImage(profile.imageUrl),
            ),
            title: Text(profile.name),
            subtitle: Text(profile.email),
            onTap: () => state.selectSuggestion(profile),
        );
    },
)

To-do list

  • x Ability to limit the number of chips
  • x Overlay doesn't move when input height changes i.e. when chips wrap
  • Create a FormField implementation (ChipsInputField) to be used within Flutter Form Widget

Known Issues

  • Deleting chips with keyboard on IOS makes app to crush (Flutter Issue with special characters used as replacement characters). Already reported #1
  • For some reason Overlay floats above AppBar when scrolling
