Flutter # LineIcons

Just another bunch of beautiful icons to use

I love Material icons. I really do. But, somehow, I suddenly felt tired of them. So I took a look around and found a wonderful set of icons by Icons8. And best of all... for free! (See the Good Boy Licence).

Yeah, what a wonderful world and so on, but, writing down all those nasty codes into Dart constants? No way!

And FlutterIcon just came out of the blue! It made all the dirty work for me.

I started to use this library in my projects, and they really seemed nice. So I asked to myself: why not publishing it for others to enjoy? After all, in all this process, I was indeed assisted by many people who decided not keeping the icons for themselves and helping others with a piece of software they had no need to share with me or anyone else.

So, thank you Icons8 and FlutterIcon!

From the font to the class

From the class to the package

Line, clean, icons

Imagine a cross-over: Windows10 style and Awesome inspiration. Well, stop dreaming! You got plenty of beautiful icons to choose from for your Android app (not tested in iOS yet, sorry). I'd rather like this set over Material, and I find much easier to find the icon I'm looking for in Icons8 than in the Material Icons page.

Let's give it a try

Installing

Include line_icons in your pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  url_launcher: ^0.1.0

If your IDE doesn't do it automatically, type:

flutter packages get

Using

Import the package in your dart file and use Icon to get the actual icon widget:

import 'package:line_icons/line_icons.dart';
...
Icon _icon = Icon(LineIcons.code);
...

Sample

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:line_icons/line_icons.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
      ),
      home: MyHomePage(title: 'Line Icons Demo Home Page'),
    );
  }
}

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  MyHomePage({Key key, this.title}) : super(key: key);
  final String title;

  @override
  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text(widget.title),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: Text(
          'Awesome Line icons is great! Take a look at the floating action button :)',
        ),
      ),
      floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(
        onPressed: () => {},
        child: Icon(LineIcons.plus),
      ),
    );
  }
}
