A treeview based on flutter_simple_treeview, adding several useful features.

  • Can accept an alternative widget to render if the tree is empty.
  • Single or multiple nodes can be toggled as selected.
  • The tree can be sorted alphabetically.
  • The tree can be searched.
  • A trailing widget can be attached to the nodes to provide for use cases such as providing a pop-up menu or a button to take action on a particular node.

Getting started

Add mika_treeview as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

  mika_treeview: ^0.1.0

Add the following import to your .dart file:

import 'package:mika_treeview/mika_treeview.dart';


The tree input must be provided as a List<Map<String, dynamic>>, for example:

Tree tree = [
    'id': '1',
    'name': 'Sales',
    'id': '2',
    'name': 'Accounting',
    'children': [
        'id': '5',
        'name': 'Payroll',
        'id': '3',
        'name': 'Accounts Payable',
        'id': '4',
        'name': 'Accounts Receivable',
    'id': '6',
    'name': 'Manufacturing',
      'children': [
          'id': '7',
          'name': 'Product Design',
          'children': [
              'id': '8',
              'name': 'Research & Development',

NOTE: Often when pulling hierarchical data from a database table, it will look something like this:

id name parent_id
1 Accounting null
2 Accounts Receivable 1
3 Accounts Payable 1
4 Manufacturing null
5 Product Design 4
6 Research & Development 5

To save from having to convert this into the structure required by TreeView, there is a factory method Tree.fromFlat that accepts this format and converts it to the required Tree structure. See the API documentation for more information.

Example tree view (all options enabled):

  tree: tree,
  treeController: _controller,
  selectMode: SelectMode.multiple,
  values: const {'1', '3'},
  onChanged: _onChangedHandler,
  emptyTreeNotice: const EmptyTreeWidget(),
  trailingBuilder: _trailingBuilder,
  isSearchable: true,
  isSorted: true,
  indent: 20.0,

See the API documentation for more information.
