Easy Search Bar #

Buy Me A Pizza

A Flutter plugin to help you handle search inside your application. Can be used inside appBar or inside your application body depending on your necessities.

Preview #

Default AppBar Preview Floating AppBar Preview

Installation #

In the pubspec.yaml of your flutter project, add the following dependency:

  easy_search_bar: ^2.3.1

Migrating from 1.x.x to 2.x.x #

Now instead of using the EasySearchBar widget inside AppBar widget, you can replace the AppBar with it.

This is what you used before:

  appBar: AppBar(
    title: EasySearchBar(
      title: 'Example',
      onSearch: (value) => setState(() => searchValue = value)

And this is what it is supposed to look like now:

  appBar: EasySearchBar(
    title: Text('Example'),
    onSearch: (value) => setState(() => searchValue = value)

Basic example with suggestions #

You can create a simple searchbar example widget with suggestions with the following example:

import 'package:easy_search_bar/easy_search_bar.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(const MyHomePage());

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  const MyHomePage({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  State<MyHomePage> createState() => _MyHomePageState();

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  String searchValue = '';
  final List<String> _suggestions = ['Afeganistan', 'Albania', 'Algeria', 'Australia', 'Brazil', 'German', 'Madagascar', 'Mozambique', 'Portugal', 'Zambia'];

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return  MaterialApp(
      title: 'Example',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.orange
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: EasySearchBar(
          title: const Text('Example'),
          onSearch: (value) => setState(() => searchValue = value),
          suggestions: _suggestions
        drawer: Drawer(
          child: ListView(
            padding: EdgeInsets.zero,
            children: [
              const DrawerHeader(
                decoration: BoxDecoration(
                  color: Colors.blue,
                child: Text('Drawer Header'),
                title: const Text('Item 1'),
                onTap: () => Navigator.pop(context)
                title: const Text('Item 2'),
                onTap: () => Navigator.pop(context)
        body: Center(
          child: Text('Value: $searchValue')

Note: If you want to create a FloatingAppBar and want the body content to go behing the AppBar you need to set extendBodyBehindAppBar Scaffold property to true. And it's also recommended to wrap your Scaffold inside a SafeArea.
