Smooth Flutter Implementation Slidable Package


A Flutter implementation of slidable list item with directional slide actions that can be dismissed. This package (flutter_slidable) is a flutter favorite package. The Flutter Favorite program’s goal is to discover the packages and plugins you should use first when developing your app.

Migration from 0.6.0

You can read this small guide to migrate from the 0.6 to the 1.0 version:


  • Accepts start (left/top) and end (right/bottom) action panes.
  • Can be dismissed.
  • 4 built-in action panes.
  • 2 built-in slide action widgets.
  • 1 built-in dismiss animation.
  • You can easily create custom layouts and animations.
  • You can use a builder to create your slide actions if you want special effects during animation.
  • Closes when a slide action has been tapped (overridable).
  • Closes when the nearest Scrollable starts to scroll (overridable).
  • Option to disable the slide effect easily.


In the pubspec.yaml of your flutter project, add the following dependency:

  flutter_slidable: <latest_version>

In your library add the following import:

import 'package:flutter_slidable/flutter_slidable.dart';

  key: const ValueKey(0),

  // The start action pane is the one at the left or the top side.
  startActionPane: ActionPane(
    // A motion is a widget used to control how the pane animates.
    motion: const ScrollMotion(),

    // A pane can dismiss the Slidable.
    dismissible: DismissiblePane(onDismissed: () {}),

    // All actions are defined in the children parameter.
    children: const [
      // A SlidableAction can have an icon and/or a label.
