sprung

Sprung is an easy-to-consume Curve that uses real physics equations to drive your animations.

Easy to consume

Sprung has three opinionated curves, Sprung.underDamped, Sprung.criticallyDamped, and Sprung.overDamped. This is the best way to get started.

AnimatedContainer(
  curve: Sprung.underDamped,
  /// ...
),

When you want more fine control, use the default constructor which is critically damped, with overridable damping value.

AnimatedContainer(
  /// Critically damped by default
  curve: Sprung(),
  /// ...
),
AnimatedContainer(
  /// Easily adjust damping value
  curve: Sprung(16),
  /// ...
),

To build a fully custom spring simulation, use Sprung.custom. This allows you to define the spring's damping and stiffness, as well as the mass' mass and initial velocity.

AnimatedContainer(
  /// Build a custom spring
  curve: Sprung.custom(
    damping: 20,
    stiffness: 180,
    mass: 1.0,
    velocity: 0.0,
  ),
  /// ...
),

Based on Physics

Using Flutter's physics engine which leverages Newton's Second Law of Motion, Hooke's Law, and velocity based damping, we implement the following equation to create realistic spring animations.

m times x dot dot equals negative k times parenthesis x minus 1 close parenthesis minus c times x dot

Reliable accuracy

Sprung exceeds Flutter specifications for curves by guaranteeing an error less than 1e-6. This amounts to a 0.0019px jitter at the beginning or end of a 1920px move.
