Adding this Curved Bottom Navigation bar library in our flutter Project

Step 1: Adding the Dependencies

Once, you add the dependencies you need to click on pub get button/text, What it does is it download all the required classes or library in you flutter project.

Step 2: Importing the library wherever required to use

import 'package:curved_navigation_bar/curved_navigation_bar.dart';

for example: if you want to add curved bottom navigation bar in main page of your flutter application, then open main.dart file and add the import package line on top.

Snippet code of how to use this library

Scaffold(
  bottomNavigationBar: CurvedNavigationBar(
    backgroundColor: Colors.blueAccent,
    items: <Widget>[
      Icon(Icons.add, size: 30),
      Icon(Icons.list, size: 30),
      Icon(Icons.compare_arrows, size: 30),
    ],
    onTap: (index) {
      //Handle button tap
    },
  ),
  body: Container(color: Colors.blueAccent),
)

Flutter Animated Bottom Navigation bar – Complete Code Flutter Examples

Create a new Flutter Project and add the dependencies in pubspec.yaml file as described in above Steps

Then, create 3 new dart pages

  1. HomePage.dart
  2. WorkPage.dart
  3. IdeaPage.dart

No need to give same name, you can name it as per you choice,

To create those pages follow this steps:

(Right Click) Lib > New > Dart File 

Creating new dart file in flutter android studio

Give a name to the dart file 

give a name to the dart file

Then add the following flutter dart code into those dart files.

HomePage.dart

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class HomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      backgroundColor: Colors.orange,
      body: Center(
        child: Container(
          child: Text(
            "THIS IS HOME PAGE",
            style: TextStyle(
                color: Colors.white,
                fontSize: 20,
                fontStyle: FontStyle.italic,
                fontWeight: FontWeight.w700),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

 

WorkPage.dart

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class WorkPage extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      backgroundColor: Colors.pink,
      body: Center(
        child: Container(
          child: Text(
            "THIS IS WORK PAGE",

                fontStyle: FontStyle.italic,
                fontWeight: FontWeight.w700),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

IdeaPage.dart

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class IdeaPage extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      backgroundColor: Colors.greenAccent,
      body: Center(
        child: Container(
          child: Text(
            "THIS IS IDEA PAGE",
            style: TextStyle(
                color: Colors.white,

                fontStyle: FontStyle.italic,
                fontWeight: FontWeight.w700),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

The above 3 pages will get replaced/displayed when uses click or Tap on any of the Bottom Navigation bar.

Final the main page where all the activity happens

main.dart

import 'package:curved_navigation_bar/curved_navigation_bar.dart';
import 'package:curvedbottomnavbar/HomePage.dart';
import 'package:curvedbottomnavbar/IdeaPage.dart';
import 'package:curvedbottomnavbar/WorkPage.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  // This widget is the root of your application.
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      title: 'Flutter Curved Novigation Bar',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
      ),
      home: MyHomePage(),
    );
  }
}

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  
  int selectedpage = 0; //initial value 
  
  final _pageOptions = [HomePage(), WorkPage(), IdeaPage()]; // listing of all 3 pages index wise
  
  final bgcolor = [Colors.orange, Colors.pink, Colors.greenAccent];  // changing color as per active index value
  
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: _pageOptions[selectedpage], // initial value is 0 so HomePage will be shown 
      bottomNavigationBar: CurvedNavigationBar(
        height: 50, 
        buttonBackgroundColor: Colors.blueAccent,
        backgroundColor: bgcolor[selectedpage],
        color: Colors.white,
        animationCurve: Curves.linearToEaseOut,
        items: <Widget>[
          Icon(
            Icons.home,
            size: 30,

        ],
        onTap: (index) {
