Creating a new view
To create a new view, create a Pug file. It is common to put this file in its own directory with the same name, to group the page, styling and optional models together. A single page can contain many flutter-views.

By default, the following imports are added to generated Dart files:
import 'package:flutter/material.dart'
import 'package:flutter/cupertino.dart';
You can add additional default imports using flutter-view.json.

To import additional packages in a Pug or HTML file, use the import tag with the package parameter:
Pug
import(package='flutter_view_widgets/flutter_view_widgets.dart')
To import files in a Pug or HTML file, use the import tag with the file parameter. The files are relative to the current file directory:
Pug
import(file='../directory/test.dart')

A flutter-view is transformed into a Dart function. As such, you are just writing Dart functions in an HTML-like format.

The format of a flutter view in Pug is as follows:
Pug
method-name(flutter-view [optional parameters])
...method body...
This will render into the following Dart:
MethodName([optional parameters]) {
return ...method body...
}
The method name in HTML or Pug is dash-cased, and gets transformed into camel-case. The same is true for the parameters.
Note: The generated Dart functions start in uppercase. This is so they can be called from other flutter-views, as will become clear in a moment.

Parameters are defined as follows:
:parameter-name[type]?
The [type] and ? are optional:
  • The type becomes the type of the parameter in the Dart function. If omitted, it it is considered dynamic
  • By default, parameters you specify are required. Adding a ? at the end indicates that they are optional.
Example:
Pug
task-list-item(flutter-view :task-model[TaskList] :task[Task] :done?)
...widgets that show the task...
This will render into the following Dart:
TaskListItem({ @required TaskList taskModel, @required Task task, done) {
return ...widgets that show the task..
}
