As you build your app, you'll often find the need for specialized functionalities that go beyond our standard offerings. Whether it's a repetitive task that calls for a custom function, a unique UI element not found in our default widget library, or the integration of a specific package or plugin from pub.dev, we provide the following features to accommodate these needs.
You will find varieties of dependencies for a specific requirement, and choosing the best one can be challenging. This section helps you identify the right dependency by examining its score.
When you search for any dependency in pub.dev, you will get a list of dependencies. You can filter out the result based on which dependency is more inclined toward your needs. You can do so by opening and checking each dependency manually.
Once you have a handful of dependencies, consider the following factors while choosing the final one.
- 1.WEB: It must support Web to run your app in our Run/Test Mode.
- 2.Likes: This shows how many developers have liked a dependency.
- 3.Pub Points: Tells the quality of the dependency (out of 130) based on code style, platform support, and maintainability.
- 4.Popularity: This metric indicates how many apps use the package. A high popularity score (out of 100%) can suggest that the package is stable and trusted by many developers.
- 5.Documentation: A well-documented package will save you time and reduce ambiguity. Check if the package has clear usage examples, a comprehensive README, and ideally API documentation.
- 6.Maintenance & Updates: Check the last update date. A regularly updated package is more likely compatible with the latest Dart/Flutter versions and has fewer bugs.
To use the dependency code in our code editor, copy its name with the version. To do so, click the 'Copy to Clipboard' (
The current dependency might depend on other dependencies to work. So make sure you also copy the name and version of all the additional dependencies to specify in the code editor.
You can check if the current dependency has any additional dependencies inside the 'Dependencies' section at the bottom right side.
An import statement points to where the dependency's code is located. When making a custom widget or action, place this statement at the beginning of the code editor.
Open the dependency page and select the installing tab; under the Import it section, you'll find the import statement. To copy, click the "Copy to Clipboard" (
