Flutter & RoboHash 02 - Add an avatar to your app

This is a three-part video on how to add an avatar image to your app by using FutureBuilder and the RoboHash API.

In this video, I will show how to:

  • Create a reusable padding widget
  • Create a configurable Avatar class
  • Install http dependency to load content from the network
  • Use FutureBuilder to load content asynchronously and handle loading / success / error states.

Source Code

Note: I'm using the iOS simulator, but you can open the Android emulator and run the same code.

This code was written with Flutter Beta 3, and is tested to work with Dart 2.

Thanks for watching!
