Shimmer With Flutter
The shimmer animation is a few animation effects just like the movement of a gradient in some specific direction. Used in Flutter Apps. Like “Swipe to unlock” on your mobile. The shimmer animation is very useful as an unobtrusive loading indicator that was originally developed by Facebook to indicate loading status, without progress bar or usual loaders.
- Add shimmer: <Latest version> dependency in your flutter project. In my case, the latest version is ^1.1.0
dependencies: shimmer: ^1.1.0
- Import shimmer.dart
Now we are ready for component code.
