Generate your getX navigator by annotating your screen

GetXNavigationGenerator #

GetXNavigationGenerator is a builder to generate a getX navigator for your pages with a simple annotation.

Features #

  • Generates a navigator class with all the routes
  • Generates a class with all the route names
  • Generates a method to go to each route (customizable navigation method) with arguments
  • Generates a method to show dialogs
  • Generates a method to go back and show a dialog

Getting Started #

First add the dependencies:

  get_x_navigation_generator_annotations: current_version

  get_x_navigation_generator: current_version

Create a navigator file and annotate it with @getXNavigator:

class MainNavigator extends BaseNavigator {}

Then annotate your pages with @getXRoute:

class FirstPage extends StatefulWidget {
  const FirstPage({super.key});

Run build runner and you get the following result:

class BaseNavigator {
  static final pages = [
      name: RouteNames.firstPage,
      page: () => FirstPage(key: (Get.arguments?['key'] as Key?)),

  Future<void> goToFirstPage({Key? key}) async => Get.toNamed<dynamic>(
        arguments: {'key': key},

  void goBack<T>({T? result}) => Get.back<T>(result: result);
  Future<T?> showCustomDialog<T>({Widget? widget}) async => Get.dialog<T>(widget ?? const SizedBox.shrink());

class RouteNames {
  static const firstPage = '/first-page';

Customization #

GetXNavigator #

  • name: The name of the navigator class. Default: BaseNavigator
  • pageType: The type of the generated pages, must extend GetPage. Default: GetPage
  • removeSuffixes: A list of suffixes to remove from the route name. Default: ['Page', 'Screen', 'View', 'Widget']

GetXRoute #

  • routeName: The name of the route. Default: [className] (converted to kebab-case, as recommended by Google for urls)

  • returnType: The return type of the route. Default: void (Note: ? is not valid, use returnTypeNullable instead)

  • returnTypeNullable: If the return type is nullable. Default: false

  • navigationType: The type of navigation. Default: NavigationType.push, valid options are: pushAndReplaceAll, popAndPush and push and dialog to specify a dialog

  • middlewares: A list of middleware types to use for the route. Default: []. Note: an annotation needs to be constant and middlewares are not, so you need to pass the type of the middleware

  • generateMethod: If a method should be generated for the route. Default: true (More info in separate method/page section below)

  • generatePage: If a page should be generated for the route. Default: true (More info in separate method/page section below)

  • isFullscreenDialog: If the route should be launched fullscreen. Default: false

  • customTransition: A custom transition to use for this route, needs to extend [CustomTransition]

  • transition: The transition to use for this route.

  • transitionDurationInMilliseconds: The duration of the transition to use for this route

  • participatesInRootNavigator: Whether this route participates in the root navigator

  • title: The title to use for this route

  • maintainState: Whether to maintain the state of this route

  • opaque: Whether this route is opaque

  • popGesture: Whether to enable the pop gesture for this route

  • showCupertinoParallax: Whether to show the parallax effect on iOS

  • @getXRouteConstructor: The constructor to use for the route. Defaults to unnamed constructor. This can be any constructor or static method

GetXDialog #

  • returnType, returnTypeNullable, routeName, isFullscreenDialog: Same as GetXRoute (note: routeName is only used for the method name)
  routeName: 'custom-name',
  returnType: bool,
  returnTypeNullable: true,
  navigationType: NavigationType.popAndPush,
  middlewares: [
class FirstPage extends StatelessWidget {
    final int someValue;

    const FirstPage({required this.someValue, super.key});

    static FirstPage doubleValue(int someValue, {Key? key}) => FirstPage(someValue: someValue * 2, key: key);

Separate method/page #

For some projects, you may have multiple projects/packages/navigators and it can happen that you want to generate a method in a different navigator than the page.

An example would be a goToHelpScreen in a shared package and an implementation in different apps. In this case, you can use the generateMethod and generatePage options to generate only the method or only the page.

Note that the routeName must be the same for both the method and the page.

If you want to generate different arguments for the page than the base Widget has, you can use the @getXRouteConstructor annotation to specify a named constructor to use for the method arguments.

// In your shared package:
  generatePage: false,
  routeName: '/help',
class BaseHelp extends StatelessWidget {
  final String appTitle;

  const BaseHelp({required this.appTitle, super.key});

  static BaseHelp.implementationConstructor()


// In your implementation:
  generateMethod: false,
  routeName: '/help',
class Help extends StatelessWidget {
  const Help();

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return BaseHelp(appTitle: 'My app');

Nested navigators #

This package supports nested navigators. To use them, you need to specify a id for the navigator and use the navigatorId argument in the methods.

  key: Get.nestedKey(,
  onGenerateRoute: (settings) {
    final page = MainNavigator.pages.firstWhere((element) => ==;
    return GetPageRoute<dynamic>(
      settings: settings,
      binding: page.binding,
      transition: page.transition,
      opaque: page.opaque,
      popGesture: page.popGesture,
      fullscreenDialog: page.fullscreenDialog,
      maintainState: page.maintainState,
      curve: page.curve,
      middlewares: page.middlewares,
