Build and Test

FTFS is a Flutter package which uses a TextField Widget to search and select a value from a list. It's a simple, lightweight, and fully tested package unlike other "autocomplete" or textfield search packages. View complete code coverage results in JSON format here.

Usage #

To use this package, add flutter_textfield_search as a dependency in your pubsec.yaml file.

Example #

Import the package.

`import 'package:flutter_textfield_search/search.dart'`;

Then include the widget anywhere you would normally use a TextField widget with a label, and a List
Example MaterialApp using TextFieldSearch Widget

    const label = "Some Label";
    const dummyList = ['Item 1', 'Item 2', 'Item 3', 'Item 4', 'Item 5'];
      home: Scaffold(
        body: TextFieldSearch(initialList: dummyList, label: label)

Issues #

Contributing #

If you wish to contribute to this package you may fork the repository and make a pull request to this repository.

Note: Testing by running flutter test --coverage will generate coverage/lcov.info. Running bash test-coverage.sh will parse the lcov.info file into JSON format. This happens automatically within the CI/CD pipeline on a pull request to master but it is always good to test locally.
