Demonstrates how to use the media_collector plugin.

import  'package:flutter/material.dart';
import  'dart:async';
import  'package:media_collector/media_collector.dart';
import  'package:media_collector/model/image.dart';
import  'package:media_collector/model/video.dart';

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
_MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
List<Images> _images;
List<Videos> _videos;
bool isLoading =  true;

void initState() {

// Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
Future<void> initPlatformState() async {
	List<Images> images;
	List<Videos> videos;

	// Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
	try {
		images =  await MediaCollector.getImages;
		videos =  await MediaCollector.getVideos;
	} catch(e) {
	// If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
	// message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
	// setState to update our non-existent appearance.
	if (!mounted) return;

	setState(() {
		_images = images;
		_videos = videos;
		isLoading =  false;


Widget build(BuildContext context) {
	return MaterialApp(
