open main.dart file and import the class file in it

import 'package:story_view/story_view.dart';

Step 3: Creating StoryItem list and adding it to HomePage(main.dart) with widget

Create a storyController

final storyController = StoryController(); // used to control the media story

Generate a list of stories

//creating the list of Social media Storys
// Social Media Story List

  List<StoryItem> storyItemsList = [
    StoryItem.text("Hello Guys, ๐Ÿ‘‰", Colors.blue[500]), //story 1
    StoryItem.text(
        "Welcome to Proto Coders Point, ๐Ÿ‘‰", Colors.red[600]), //story 2
    StoryItem.pageImage(
        NetworkImage(
            "https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1243950916362895361/Z__-CJxz_400x400.jpg"),
        caption: "THINK TWICE CODE ONCE"), //story 3

    StoryItem.pageImage(
        NetworkImage(

then, Add the storycontroller and story item list into StoryView() widget

StoryView(
       storyItemsList,  // this is list of StoryItems
       controller: storyController, 
       repeat: true,  // set it to false if 
       onComplete: () => print("STORY COMPLETED"), // what sould happen when story ends
     ),

Complete code Copy Paste it in main.dart file

main.dart

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:story_view/story_view.dart';

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

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

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {

  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  // lets start creating Social media Story view

  final storyController = StoryController(); // used to control the media story

  List<StoryItem> storyItemsList = [
    StoryItem.text("Hello Guys, ๐Ÿ‘‰", Colors.blue[500]), //story 1
    StoryItem.text(
        "Welcome to Proto Coders Point, ๐Ÿ‘‰", Colors.red[600]), //story 2
    StoryItem.pageImage(
