simple_drawer offers an easy way to implement your own widget as a drawer which slides in from any direction (top, bottom, left & right).

Getting Started

To use: Add a SimpleDrawer at the end of a Stack & activate it by calling "SimpleDrawer.activate(id);" anywhere. You can call "SimpleDrawer.deactivate(id);" to disable the drawer remotely.

A SimpleDrawer has various arguments to modify it (only 4 required):

  • (required) id (String) (Identifies the drawer; can be any String you choose.)

  • (required) direction (Direction) (Specifies the direction from which the drawer enters. E.g.:

  • (required) child (Widget) (The content of the drawer.)

  • (one required) childWidth & childHeight (double) (The width and height of the child passed in pixels. For & .bottom childHeight is requires. For Direction.left & .right childWidth is required)

  • (optional) animationDurationInMilliseconds (int) (Duration which it takes for the drawer to completely slide in and out. Default: 300)

  • (optional) animationCurve (Curve) (Curve which the drawer takes to slide in and out. Default: Curves.ease)

  • (optional) fadeColor (Colors) (Color which is overlaid behind the SimpleDrawer to obscure content. Default: Colors.black54)

  • (optional) simpleDrawerAreaHeight & simpleDrawerAreaWidth (double) (Restrictions on how much space to total widget (i.e. drawer + Conatiner with fadeColor) can take up. Default: device height & width)

You can also use SimpleDrawer.getDrawerStatus(id) to get the current status of any SimpleDrawer.


void main() {
    home: MyApp2(),
    debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,

class MyApp2 extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
      // set one simpleDrawer sliding in from the bottom
      Widget bottomSimpleDrawer = SimpleDrawer(
        child: Container(
          // round the corners & set color
          decoration: BoxDecoration(
            borderRadius: BorderRadius.only(
                topLeft: Radius.circular(20), topRight: Radius.circular(20)),
          width: MediaQuery.of(context).size.width,
          height: 300,
        childHeight: 300,
        direction: Direction.bottom,
        id: "bottom",

      return Scaffold(
        body: Stack(
          children: [
              child: ElevatedButton(
                  onPressed: () {
                  child: Text("bottom")),
