Animated Metaballs for Flutter #

Pub Version Live Example

About #

This library makes it easy to add well performing, highly configurable metaballs to your flutter project. The metaballs automatically scale to any screen size so you don't have to manually adjust the parameters for different devices. The metaballs have been implemented in shaders for the best performance across all devices. All available effects have been optimized for both mouse and touch input and should not interfere with any gesture detectors

Property Default value Accepted values Description
Color? color Color(0xff4285F4) The color of the metaballs
MetaballsEffect? effect The animated effect applied to the metaballs
Gradient? gradient A gradient for coloring the metaballs, overwrites color
int? metaballs 40 1 to 128 The amount of metaballs
Duration? animationDuration Duration(milliseconds: 200) The duration of the color changing animation
double? speedMultiplier 1 Above 0 A multiplier of the ball movement speed
double? bounceStiffness 3 Above 0 A multiplier to change the speed at which balls change direction
double? minBallRadius 15 0 or more The minimum size of a ball
double? maxBallRadius 40 Above min The maximum size of a ball
double? glowRadius 0.7 0 to 1 A multiplier to indicate the radius of the glow
double? glowIntensity 0.6 0 to 1 The brightness of the glow around the ball
Widget? child A widget to be placed on top of the Metaballs widget

Effects #


MetaballsEffect.follow() #

This effect adds a metaball for every cursor / touch and then follows that cursor / touch around

Property Default value Accepted values Description
double? smoothing 1 0 or more The amount the metaballs movement gets smoothed
double? growthFactor 1 0 or more The amount the metaballs grow relative to their movement speed
double? radius 0 or more The size of the following metaball where 0 is the minBallRadius and 1 is the maxBallRadius


MetaballsEffect.speedup() #

This effect makes all metaballs speedup relative to how fast you move your mouse or swipe on your touchscreen

Property Default value Accepted values Description
double? speedup 1 Above 0 The amount the metaballs speed up relative to the mouse / swipe speed


MetaballsEffect.grow() #

This effect increases the radius of all metaballs based on how close they are to the mouse cursor or a touch

Property Default value Accepted values Description
double? radius 0.5 Above 0 The radius around the mouse / touch in which the metaballs get scaled up
double? growthFactor 0.5 Above 0 The amount by which the metaballs increase in size
double? smoothing 1 0 or more The amount the movement gets smoothed


MetaballsEffect.ripple() #

This effect makes all metaballs increase and then decrease their radius in an outgoing ripple from a tab / mouse click

Property Default value Accepted values Description
double? speed 1 Above 0 The speed of the ripple effect
double? width 1 Above 0 The the ripple width
double? growthFactor 1 Above 0 The amount by which the metaballs grow
Duration? fade Duration(milliseconds: 1200) The time before the ripple is completely faded away


Web support #

On web the gradients are currently manually implemented in webgl because ShaderMask is currently not supported on web. Because of that certain gradient features are currently not implemented like the focal and focalRadius options on the RadialGradient and the transform matrix on all gradients. Support for these options will probably be added in a later release but currently don't have high priority. If you depend on these features feel free to open a feature request or pull request on github.
