🚀 The markdown_widget 2.0 has now been released. The entire code has been completely redesigned according to the CommonMark Spec 3.0 compared to the 1.x versions. This brings a lot of breaking changes, but also more standardized markdown rendering logic and more robust and scalable code

Coverage Status pub package demo

A simple and easy-to-use markdown rendering component.

  • Supports TOC (Table of Contents) function for quick location through Headings
  • Supports code highlighting
  • Supports all platforms


Before starting, you can try out the online demo by clicking demo

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

class MarkdownPage extends StatelessWidget {
  final String data;


  Widget build(BuildContext context) => Scaffold(body: buildMarkdown());

  Widget buildMarkdown() => MarkdownWidget(data: data);

If you want to use your own Column or other list widget, you can use MarkdownGenerator

  Widget buildMarkdown() =>
      Column(children: MarkdownGenerator().buildWidgets(data));

🌠Night mode

markdown_widget supports night mode by default. Simply use a different MarkdownConfig to enable it.

  Widget buildMarkdown(BuildContext context) {
    final isDark = Theme.of(context).brightness == Brightness.dark;
    return MarkdownWidget(
        data: data,
            isDark ? MarkdownConfig.darkConfig : MarkdownConfig.defaultConfig);
Default mode Night mode

You can customize the style and click events of links, like this

  Widget buildMarkdown() => MarkdownWidget(
      data: data,
      config: MarkdownConfig(configs: [
          style: TextStyle(
            color: Colors.red,
            decoration: TextDecoration.underline,
          onTap: (url) {
            ///TODO:on tap

📜TOC (Table of Contents) feature

Using the TOC is very simple

  Widget buildTocWidget() => TocWidget(controller: tocController);

  Widget buildMarkdown() => MarkdownWidget(data: data, tocController: tocController);

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        body: Row(
          children: <Widget>[
            Expanded(child: buildTocWidget()),
            Expanded(child: buildMarkdown(), flex: 3)

🎈Highlighting code

Highlighting code supports multiple themes.

import 'package:flutter_highlight/themes/a11y-light.dart';

  Widget buildMarkdown() => MarkdownWidget(
      data: data,
      config: MarkdownConfig(configs: [
        PreConfig(theme: a11yLightTheme, language: 'dart'),

🧬Select All and Copy

Cross-platform support for Select All and Copy function.


🌐Html tag

As the current package only implements the conversion of Markdown tags, it does not support the conversion of HTML tags by default. However, this functionality can be supported through extension. You can refer to the usage in html_support.dart for more details.

Here is the online HTML demo showcase

🧮Latex support

The example also includes simple support for LaTeX, which can be implemented by referring to the implementation in latex.dart

Here is the online latex demo showcase

🍑Custom tag implementation

By passing a SpanNodeGeneratorWithTag to MarkdownGeneratorConfig, you can add new tags and the corresponding SpanNodes for those tags. You can also use existing tags to override the corresponding SpanNodes.

You can also customize the parsing rules for Markdown strings using InlineSyntax and BlockSyntax, and generate new tags.

You can refer to this issue to learn how to implement a custom tag.
