This widget turn html string into flutter widgets like Text, RichText and Table.

This is so not a webview alternative. Think this as a read mode for simple html elements.

The widget is extracted from wiki-flutter, and is initially designed for html segments in the mobile version of wikipedia articles only, so there's gonna be many, many issues for arbitrary html segments.


import 'package:flutter_html_widget/flutter_html_widget.dart';

final html = """
<section class="homepage__key_points card">
  <h1 class="homepage__title">
    Build beautiful native apps in record time

  <div class="homepage__tagline">
    Flutter is Google’s mobile app SDK for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is free and open source.

new MaterialApp(
  home: new Material(
    child: new HtmlWidget(html: html, key: key)

new Wrap(
  children: <Widget>[
    new Container(
      padding: EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
      child: new RichText(
        text: new TextSpan(
          children: [
            new TextSpan(text: "Build beautiful native apps in record time")
