Usage #

1. add dependencies into you project pubspec.yaml file
  easy_sidemenu: ^0.4.1

Run flutter packages get in the root directory of your app.

2. import easy sidemenu lib
import 'package:easy_sidemenu/easy_sidemenu.dart';

Now you can use SideMenu as a widget in your code.

3. use SideMenu

You must first define a list of items to display on SideMenu:

List<SideMenuItem> items = [
    // Priority of item to show on SideMenu, lower value is displayed at the top
    priority: 0,
    title: 'Dashboard',
    onTap: () => page.jumpToPage(0),
    icon: Icon(Icons.home),
    badgeContent: Text(
      style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white),
    priority: 1,
    title: 'Settings',
    onTap: () => page.jumpToPage(1),
    icon: Icon(Icons.settings),
    priority: 2,
    title: 'Exit',
    onTap: () {},
    icon: Icon(Icons.exit_to_app),
priority rule:
  • Priority should start from 0
  • Priority value should be unique
custom builder:

Instead of title and icon in SideMenuItem can use builder to create your customize items:

  priority: 2,
  builder: (context, displayMode) {
    return Container();
  onTap: () {},

After that you need to warp your main page to a row and then add SideMenu as first child of that, like below:

PageController page = PageController();
  mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.start,
  children: [
      // Page controller to manage a PageView
      controller: page,
      // Will shows on top of all items, it can be a logo or a Title text
      title: Image.asset('assets/images/easy_sidemenu.png'),
      // Will show on bottom of SideMenu when displayMode was SideMenuDisplayMode.open
      footer: Text('demo'),
      // Notify when display mode changed
      onDisplayModeChanged: (mode) {
      // List of SideMenuItem to show them on SideMenu
      items: items,
      child: PageView(
        controller: page,
        children: [
            child: Center(
              child: Text('Dashboard'),
            child: Center(
              child: Text('Settings'),
