Rest Navigator #

A simple flutter router that parses path parameters.

This package was inspired by fluro.

Getting Started #

The easiest way to get started is by looking at an example:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:rest_router/parser.dart';
import 'package:rest_router/rest_navigator.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  final router = Router({
    "/": (BuildContext context, parameters) => HomePage(),
    "/items": (BuildContext context, parameters) => SubPage("path is /items"),
    "/plus_two/:num": (BuildContext context, parameters) => SubPage("sum is ${int.parse(parameters["num"]?.first) + 2}"),
  }, onUnknownRouteHandler: (BuildContext context, parameters) => SubPage("${parameters[urlPathKey]?.first} is 404"));

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Rest navigator demo',
      initialRoute: "/",
      onGenerateRoute: router.generator,

/// Navigates to sub pages.
class HomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(title: Text("/")),
      body: Center(
        child: Column(
          children: <Widget>[
              child: Text("Item list"),
              onPressed: () => Navigator.of(context).pushNamed("/items", arguments: TransitionType.native),
              child: Text("Run /plus_two/40"),
              onPressed: () => Navigator.of(context).pushNamed("/plus_two/40", arguments: TransitionType.native),
              child: Text("Invalid path"),
              onPressed: () => Navigator.of(context).pushNamed("/itemz"), // Defaults to instant transition

/// Scaffold with app bar title.
class SubPage extends StatelessWidget {
  final String title;


  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(title: Text(title)),

Parameters is a Map<String, List<String>> to allow multiple variables of the same name.

Note you have specify arguments: TransitionType.native to achieve native transitions. The rationale is that this is better for a deep-link powered app. Feel free to fork this project to make opiniated changes.

The source code is available to fully understand what's going in under the hood, and PRs are always welcome.


  • Removed debugging statements.


  • Created basic router for flutter.
  • Added native and no route transitions.
  • Added simple path parameter parsing.
  • Tested widgets and parser.
