flutter_font_picker Pub Version

A Flutter widget that lets the user select and apply a Google Font from a custom dropdown.

Provides a FontPicker widget that can be used in a route or dialog as a UI for choosing a font from Google Fonts.

Depends on the google_fonts package for loading and displaying the fonts.

Simple Example

Inside your build method, use a button that when pressed, will navigate to the font picker screen:

PickerFont? _selectedFont;

ElevatedButton(
  child: Text('Pick a font'),
  onPressed: () {
    Navigator.push(
      context,
      MaterialPageRoute(
          builder: (context) => FontPicker(
              onFontChanged: (PickerFont font) {
                _selectedFont = font;
                print("${font.fontFamily} with font weight ${font.fontWeight} and font style ${font.fontStyle}.}");
              },
          ),
      ),
    );
  }),

The onFontChanged function retrieves the font that the user selects with an object containing details like the font's name, weight, style, etc.

You can then use its toTextStyle() method to style any text with the selected font:

Text('This will be styled with the font: $_selectedFont.fontFamily',
      style: selectedFont.toTextStyle()),

Check the example project for more usages.

   

FontPicker settings

  • onFontChanged: (required) the callback that returns a PickerFont object with all the details and methods for the user's selected font.
  • googleFonts: A list of Google fonts to use in the font picker. By default it contains all 975 fonts included in constants.dart. You should only use a limited number of them for performance and data saving, as each font is downloaded and stored to the app's storage when it comes into view. Using up to 100-200 fonts should work fine.
  • initialFontFamily: The font family to use initially in the font picker. Defaults to 'Roboto'.
  • showFontInfo: Whether to show font details (category, number of variants) next to each font tile in the list.
  • showInDialog: Set this to true if you want to use the font picker inside an AlertDialog (check examples).
  • recentsCount: Fonts that the user selected before are saved to be shown at the start of the list. Sets how many you want saved as recents.

FontPicker features

The user can:

  • Browse a list of any Google fonts you want.
  • Select a variant (font weight and/or style) for each font.
  • Filter the fonts by category (serif, sans-serif, handwriting, etc.) or available font glyphs (Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, etc.).
  • Search the fonts by name.
  • See the most recently used fonts at the top of the list.
