Getting Started

  1. Add a dependency on rolodex package in pubspec.yaml:
  rolodex: any
  1. Import the library:
import 'package:rolodex/rolodex.dart';
  1. Wrap a widget that shows a value with Rolodex:
  value: _counter,  // <-- Make sure to specify the value 
  child: Text(      // <-- The wrapped widget
    style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1,

You can try this with the default Flutter app generated by flutter create.


Rolodex provides limited but extensive customization capabilities via themes. You can customize Rolodex by specifying theme attributes, for example:

  theme: const RolodexThemeData(
    direction: RolodexDirection.reversed,
    shadowColor: Colors.indigo,
    clipBorderRadius: BorderRadius.all(Radius.circular(6)),
    alwaysShowBackground: true,
  value: _counter,
  child: SizedBox(
    width: 60,
    height: 60,
    child: Center(
      child: Text("$_counter",
        style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.copyWith(
          fontSize: 40, color: Colors.white,

Global Settings

Instead of customizing every Rolodex widget in your app, you might want to specify global theme settings via RolodexTheme:

return MaterialApp(
  title: 'Flutter Demo',
  theme: ThemeData(
  home: RolodexTheme(
    data: const RolodexThemeData(  // <-- These settings will apply to all Rolodex widgets in the widget tree
      mode: RolodexMode.splitFlap,
      maxCards: 2,
      animationDuration: const Duration(milliseconds: 200),
    child: MyHomePage(title: 'Flutter Demo Home Page')
