Scribble is a lightweight library for freehand drawing in Flutter supporting pressure, variable line width and more!


Note: Scribble is still in development and will receive more features down the line!


  • Variable line width
  • Image Export
  • Pen and touch pressure support
  • Choose which pointers can draw (touch, pen, mouse, etc.)
  • Lines get slimmer when the pen is moved more quickly
  • Line eraser support
  • Full undo/redo support using history_state_notifier
  • Sketches are fully serializable to JSON


  • X Load sketches
  • X PNG export


You can find a full working example in the example directory

You can create a drawing surface by adding the Scribble widget to your widget tree and passing in a ScribbleNotifier.

Where you manage this notifier is up to you, but since it is a StateNotifier, it works amazingly with riverpod for example.

import 'package:flutter_riverpod/flutter_riverpod.dart';

final scribbleStateProvider =
StateNotifierProvider.autoDispose<ScribbleNotifier, ScribbleState>(
      (ref) => ScribbleNotifier(),

You can then pass the notifier to the scribble widget.

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

class App extends ConsumerWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context, ScopedReader watch) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Scribble(
        notifier: watch(scribbleStateProvider.notifier),

Use the public methods on ScribbleNotifier to control the behavior (for example from a button in the UI:

// Set color

// Clear

// Undo

// Export to Image
notifier.renderImage(pixelRatio: 2.0);

// And more ... 

Additional information

As mentioned above, the package is still under development, but we already use it in the app we are currently developing.
