flutter_view_model

pub package

A view model framework inspired by Microsofts INotifyPropertyChanged interface.

Getting Started

Add view_model to your pubspec.yaml dependencies:

...
dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter

  flutter_view_model: <current version>
...

Usage

A basic view model:

// Import the packages.
import 'package:flutter_view_model/flutter_view_model.dart';

// 1. Create a ViewModel
class PersonViewModel extends ViewModel {
  // Properties

  String _firstName;
  static const String firstNamePropName = "firstName";
  String get firstName => _firstName;
  set firstName(String value) {
    // When the value of _firstName and value are not equal, than the _firstName value gets updated 
    // via the provided function and a PropertyChangedEvent is send. 
    if (updateValue(firstNamePropName, _firstName, value, (v) => _firstName = v)) { // When the _firstName changes than also the fullName changes.
      notifyPropertyChanged(fullNamePropName);
    }
  }

  String _lastName;
  static const String lastNamePropName = "lastName";
  String get lastName => _lastName;
  set lastName(String value) {
    if (updateValue(lastNamePropName, _lastName, value, (v) => _lastName = v)) {
      notifyPropertyChanged(fullNamePropName);
    }
  }

  // ReadOnly Property
  static const String fullNamePropName = "fullName";
  String get fullName => "$_firstName $lastNamePropName";

  // Methods

  PersonViewModel(this._firstName, this._lastName) : super();
}

A view model provider:

// 2. Create a ViewModelProvider
class PersonViewModelProvider extends ViewModelProvider<PersonViewModel> {
  // Properties

  // Methods
  PersonViewModelProvider({Key key, @required PersonViewModel viewModel, @required WidgetBuilder childBuilder}) : super(key: key, viewModel: viewModel, childBuilder: childBuilder);

  static PersonViewModel of(BuildContext context) {
    return (context.inheritFromWidgetOfExactType(PersonViewModelProvider) as PersonViewModelProvider).viewModel;
  }
}

The build function within your view:

// Within your widget build function...
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    // Top most Widget is the view model provider
    return LoginPageViewModelProvider( viewModel: PersonViewModel("Fred", "Flinstone")  childBuilder: (ctx) {
      // get the view Model via the PersonViewModelProvider...
      final viewModel = PersonViewModelProvider.of(ctx);
      // ViewModelPropertyWidgetBuilder rebuilds its child whenever the given property (propertyName) of the given view model changes.
      return return ViewModelPropertyWidgetBuilder(
        viewModel: viewModel,
        propertyName: PersonViewModel.fullNamePropName,
        builder: (context, _) {
          return Text(viewModel.fullName)
        }
    }));
  }
