Streams Provider #

Coverage GitHub issues GitHub stars GitHub license

It provides an elegant and effectively ways to use stream in Provider.

Streams Widgets #

StreamsProvider is a Flutter widget which provides a provider to its children via Provider.of<T>(context). It is used as a dependency injection (DI) widget so that a single instance of a provider can be provided to multiple widgets within a subtree.

In most cases, StreamsProvider should be used to create new provider which will be made available to the rest of the subtree. In this case, since StreamsProvider is responsible for creating the provider, it will automatically handle closing the provider.

  create: (BuildContext context) => ProviderA(),
  child: ChildA(),

In some cases, StreamsProvider can be used to provide an existing provider to a new portion of the widget tree. This will be most commonly used when an existing provider needs to be made available to a new route. In this case, StreamsProvider will not automatically close the bloc since it did not create it.

  value: StreamsProvider.of<ProviderA>(context),
  child: ScreenA(),

then from either ChildA, or ScreenA we can retrieve ProviderA with:

// with extensions context.provider<ProviderA>();

// without extensions StreamsProvider.of<ProviderA>(context)

StreamsSelector is a Flutter widget which select streams from a provider and invokes the builder in response to signal emits in the selector stream.

StreamsSelector<ProviderA, DataType>(
  selector: (context, provider) {
     // select streams from ProviderA
  builder: (context, data, child) {
    // return widget here based on selector stream emits

StreamsListener is a Flutter widget which takes a StreamsWidgetListener and a selector and invokes the listener in response to signal emits in the selector. It should be used for functionality that needs to occur once per signal emit such as navigation, showing a SnackBar, showing a Dialog, etc... listener is only called once for each signal emit.

StreamsListener<ProviderA, DataType>(
  selector: (context, provider) {
     // select streams from ProviderA
  listener: (context, data) {
    // do stuff here based on data changes
  child: Container(),

Usage #

Lets take a look at how to use StreamsSelector to hook up a CounterPage widget to a CounterProvider.

counter_provider.dart #

class CounterProvider implements StreamsProvidable {
  final _counter = MutableValueStream<int>(0);
  ValueStream<int> counter => _counter;

  void incrementCounter() {

  void decrementCounter() {

counter_page.dart #

class CounterPage extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    final CounterProvider counterProvider = context.provider<CounterProvider>();

    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Counter')),
      body: StreamsSelector<CounterProvider, int>(
        selector: (context, provider) => provider.counter,
        builder: (context, count, child) {
          return Center(
            child: Text(
              style: TextStyle(fontSize: 24.0),
      floatingActionButton: Column(
        crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.end,
        mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.end,
        children: <Widget>[
            padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(vertical: 5.0),
            child: FloatingActionButton(
              child: Icon(Icons.add),
              onPressed: () {
            padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(vertical: 5.0),
            child: FloatingActionButton(
              child: Icon(Icons.remove),
              onPressed: () {
