remote_form #

Flutter widget to manage a form from a JSON definition

Usage #

Add the factory to the RemoteManagerWidget:

    obSubmit: (values, {associatedData}){}, 
    onChanges: (key, value, {associatedData}) => debugPrint('$key change to $value'),
    definition: {},
    child: RemoteWidget(...)

Then you can provide a JSON representation of a color picker like this:

    'type': 'image_button',
    'id': 'myButton',
    'value': 'on',
    'values': {
      'on': '',
      'off': '',


Image button:

id : id of the widget value : current value, it has to match one of the values entries width : width of the button height: height of the button fit: fit, default to contain (1), see BoxFit for more padding: padding of the button, see EdgeInsets definition values: map of possible value

How it works #

Under the hood remote_ui does his magic to transform JSON into widget tree and forward changes to remote_form.

[0.0.2] - 05/10/2019. #

  • add validator provider to check form from outside.

[0.0.1] - 05/06/2019. #

  • initial release.
