Directional Layouts #

A lightweight version of the more robust Layout library. Create symmetric, fully responsive layouts with ease.

Getting Started #

VerticalLayout and HorizontalLayout are effectively just shortcuts for Columns and Rows with MainAxisSize.max and MainAxisAlignment.center set by default, and each of the provided is wrapped in an Expanded widget. The SetFlex widget can be used to give the Expanded widgets a flex other than 1, which is the default.

This allows for quick implementation of flex-based layouts.

Notes It is recommended to set the resizeToAvoidBottomInset: false flag for Scaffolds containing DirectionalLayout widgets to prevent resizing the entire UI when a keyboard is opened.

In the example below, the UI is divided into 3 sections using flex: true in a DirectionalLayout parent, and the middle SignInSection widget given flex 2 using SetFlex wrapper. VerticalShrink is a helper widget that prevents the child (expanded inside a Column) from stretching vertically.

This example contains the GoogleSignInButton widget and static methods from the Login package.

class SignInSection extends StatelessWidget {  
  final email = TextEditingController();  
  final password = TextEditingController();  
  
  @override  
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {  
    return Card(  
      child: VerticalLayout(  
        padding: 16,  
        mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceEvenly,  
        children: [  
          TextField(  
              controller: email,  
              keyboardType: TextInputType.emailAddress,  
              decoration: InputDecoration(labelText: "Email")),  
          TextField(  
              controller: password,  
              obscureText: true,  
              decoration: InputDecoration(labelText: "Password")),  
          HorizontalLayout(  
            mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceBetween,  
            children: [  
              RaisedButton(  
                child: Text("No account? Register"),  
                onPressed: () => debugPrint("Register tapped."),  
              ),  
              RaisedButton(  
                child: Text("Login"),  
                onPressed: () => Login.signInWithEmail(  
                    email: email, password: password, context: context),  
              ),  
            ],  
          )  
        ],  
      ),  
    );  
  }  
}

class HerculesLogin extends StatelessWidget {  
  @override  
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {  
    return SafeArea(  
        child: VerticalLayout(children: [  
          VerticalLayout(children: [  
            HorizontalLayout(children: [  
              Image.asset("images/hercules_logo.png", height: 48),  
              Text("Hercules",  
                  style: TextStyle(  
                    fontWeight: FontWeight.w300,  
                    fontSize: 48,  
                    color: darkBlue,  
                  )),  
            ]),  
            Text("The world's first realtime remote workplace.",  
                style: TextStyle(  
                  fontSize: 16,  
                )),  
          ]),  
          SetFlex(  
            child: SignInSection(),  
            flex: 2,  
            padding: 16,  
          ),  
          VerticalShrink(  
            child: GoogleSignInButton(),  
          ),  
        ],  
        flex: true,  
      ),  
    );  
  }  
}
