Getting Started #

The package provides 2 widgets for building UI and 1 controller for navigating. The most common and basic usage would be the following

final BottomNavigationController _controller = BottomNavigationController();

@override
void dispose() {
  _controller.dispose();
  super.dispose();
}

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return WillPopScope(
    onWillPop: () async {
      return !_controller.navigateBack();
    },
    child: Scaffold(
      body: BottomNavigationBody(
        controller: _controller,
        transitionType: BottomNavigationTransitionType.none, // BottomNavigationTransitionType.fadeInOut, BottomNavigationTransitionType.fadeThrough,
        children: [
          Container(color: Colors.red),
          Container(color: Colors.blue),
          Container(color: Colors.green),
          Container(color: Colors.yellow),
          Container(color: Colors.orange),
        ],
      ),
      bottomNavigationBar: BottomNavigationBarBuilder(
        controller: _controller,
        builder: (context, index, child) {
          return BottomNavigationBar(
            currentIndex: index,
            type: BottomNavigationBarType.fixed,
            onTap: _controller.navigateTo,
            items: [
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.one_k), label: 'First'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.two_k), label: 'Second'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.three_k), label: 'Third'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.four_k), label: 'Fourth'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.five_k), label: 'Fifth'),
            ],
          );
        },
      ),
    ),
  );
}

You have to declare BottomNavigationController just like TextEditingController and pass it to the BottomNavigationBody and BottomNavigationBarBuilder. Keep in mind you are responsible for disposing it. The BottomNavigationController class is responsible for handling navigation and it contains the history. Call navigateTo(int index) to navigate to a certain destination and call navigateBack() to navigate back to previous destination. Usually, navigateBack() is used only for handling the back button on Android but it works perfectly on all platforms. You can navigate by manually setting the controller.currentIndex property but it's not recommended since this does not record the history.

BottomNavigationController.of(context) // Null safe
BottomNavigationController.maybeOf(context) // Returns null if not exists

You can extract the controller in the decendants of either the BottomNavigationBody or the BottomNavigationBarBuilder widget.

final GlobalKey<NavigatorState> _navigatorKey1 = GlobalKey<NavigatorState>();

final BottomNavigationController _controller = BottomNavigationController();

@override
void dispose() {
  _controller.dispose();
  super.dispose();
}

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return WillPopScope(
    onWillPop: () async {
      /// You have to handle nested navigation pop manually.
      bool didPop = false;
      if (_controller.currentIndex == 4) {
        didPop = await _navigatorKey1.currentState!.maybePop();
      }
      if (!didPop) {
        return !_controller.navigateBack();
      }
      return false;
    },
    child: Scaffold(
      body: BottomNavigationBody(
        controller: _controller,
        transitionType: BottomNavigationTransitionType.fadeThrough,
        children: [
          Container(color: Colors.red),
          Container(color: Colors.blue),
          Container(color: Colors.green),
          Container(color: Colors.yellow),

          /// Declare Navigator for nested navigation.
          Navigator(
            key: _navigatorKey1,
            initialRoute: 'first',
            onGenerateRoute: (settings) {
              return MaterialPageRoute(
                builder: (context) {
                  switch (settings.name) {
                    case 'first':
                      return Center(
                        child: ElevatedButton(
                          onPressed: () {
                            Navigator.pushNamed(context, 'second');
                          },
                          child: Text('Go to second page'),
                        ),
                      );
                    case 'second':
                      return Center(child: Text('Second'));
                    default:
                      throw UnimplementedError();
                  }
                },
              );
            },
          ),
        ],
      ),
      bottomNavigationBar: BottomNavigationBarBuilder(
        controller: _controller,
        builder: (context, index, child) {
          return BottomNavigationBar(
            currentIndex: index,
            type: BottomNavigationBarType.fixed,
            onTap: _controller.navigateTo,
            items: [
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.one_k), label: 'First'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.two_k), label: 'Second'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.three_k), label: 'Third'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.four_k), label: 'Fourth'),
              BottomNavigationBarItem(icon: Icon(Icons.five_k), label: 'Fifth'),
            ],
          );
        },
      ),
    ),
  );
}

You are free to customize the behaviour of the navigation. In order to implement nested navigation, you have to pass a Navigator widget as one of children of BottomNavigationBody and give a GlobalKey for handling the back button.
