Out of Context - Context-free navigation & scaffolds

Travis CI Codecov Pub Dev Documentation

Navigation in Flutter involves a great deal of ceremony as a BuilderContext must always be passed to a Navigator. A BuilContext must be passed down from a Widget to the calling method, which is needlessly verbose. It also makes testing hard as the navigation methods are static and cannot be mocked.

Out of Context provides (over-glorified) wrappers for context-free navigation and scaffolds.

Please view the stable brunch for a production version.
