Badges for Flutter

Pub Version


In your pubspec.yaml

  badges: ^2.0.2
import 'package:badges/badges.dart';

Basic Usage:

      badgeContent: Text('3'),
      child: Icon(Icons.settings),


BadgeAnimationType.slide BadgeAnimationType.scale BadgeAnimationType.fade


Sometimes you may want to use chip but it's too big, even if set padding to zero. This is where Badge comes handy.

      padding: EdgeInsets.all(0),
      backgroundColor: Colors.deepPurple,
      label: Text('BADGE', style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white)),
      toAnimate: false,
      shape: BadgeShape.square,
      badgeColor: Colors.deepPurple,
      borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(8),
      badgeContent: Text('BADGE', style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white)),
