A Flutter package to implement Didier Boelens's BlocProvider and simplified use of Stream using Dart's Generics.

Bloc Generic Streams #

This package was create to be an easy implementation of Didier Boelens's BlocProvider and including a new way to use a BehaviorSubject using GenericStream class that creates an object more simple with Dart's Generics.

I built this package because when you have an application like an Uber application, which was my case, others bloc packages didn't attended my expectations, so, I created this, more simple and more intuitive. You only need to create your Bloc extending BlocBase and then creating a BlocProvider in whatever screen you desire.

Example: #

    import 'package:bloc_generic_streams/bloc_generic_streams.dart';
    class HomeBloc extends BlocBase {
      int counter = 0;
      final GenericBehavior<int> counterStream = GenericBehavior<int>();

      final GenericPublish<int> publishSubject = GenericPublish<int>();

      final GenericReplay<int> publishSubject = GenericReplay<int>();
      void increment() {
      void dispose() {

counterStream variable contains all most important methods exposed, like:

  • sink (StreamSink)
  • stream (ValueStream)
  • stream debounce (1500 ms)

How to use BlocProvider? #

class HomeScreen extends StatelessWidget {
      //Instantiate our bloc... HomeBloc in our case
      final HomeBloc _bloc = HomeBloc();
      Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        //Return a BlocProvider instance specifying its type
        return BlocProvider<HomeBloc>(
          blocBuilder: () => _bloc, // Build and create our bloc
          child: Scaffold(
            appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Home Screen')),
            floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(
              onPressed: _bloc.increment,
              child: Icon(Icons.add),
            body: Center(
              child: StreamBuilder<int>(
                initialData: _bloc.counter,
                //Retrieving Stream from _bloc's GenericStream object
                builder: (_, AsyncSnapshot<int> snapshot) {
                  return Text(
                    style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1,

Now it's very easy to implement a BLoC class and to manipulate the way you want.

Retrieving Bloc #

Follow the same pattern from other packages, like this:

final HomeBloc _bloc = BlocProvider.of<HomeBloc>(context);

With that, you can access and retrieved any stream/method inside your Bloc.
