Grouped list package for Flutter

A Flutter ListView in which list items can be grouped to sections.

Getting Started

Add the package to your pubspec.yaml:

    path: ../grouped_list

In your dart file, import the library:

import 'package:grouped_list/grouped_list.dart';

Instead of using a ListView use GroupedListView and create your list with the builder constructor:

    elements: _elements,
    groupBy: (element) => element['group'],
    groupSeparatorBuilder: _buildGroupSeparator,
    itemBuilder: (context, element) => Text(element['name']),

You can use all fields from ListView but you have to specify three extra fields:

Required Parameters:

  • elements: A list of the data you want to display in the list.
  • groupBy: Function which maps an element to its grouped value.
  • itemBuilder: Function which returns an Widget which defines the item.
  • groupSeparator: Function which returns an Widget which defines the section separator.
Widget _buildGroupSeparator(dynamic groupByValue) {
  return Text('$groupByValue');

The passed parameter is the return value of the defined groupBy function for that specific section.

Optional Parameters:

  • separator: A Widget which defines a separator between items inside a section.


The item builder functions only creates the actual list items for the seperator items use the separator parameter. Other than the itemBuilder function of the ListView.builder constructor the function has an element instead of the index as parameter.
