Creating a Carousel Slider in Flutter

Creating a Carousel Slider in Flutter

A carousel slider is a common UI element in mobile app development that allows users to swipe through a series of images or content in a carousel-like manner.

Setting Up the Project:

Before we begin, make sure you have Flutter installed and set up on your system. Create a new Flutter project using the following command:

flutter create carousel_slider_demo

Adding Dependencies:

In your pubspec.yaml file, add the carousel_slider package to your dependencies:

    sdk: flutter
  carousel_slider: ^4.0.0

Import the package:

import 'package:carousel_slider/carousel_slider.dart';

Creating the Carousel Slider:

Step 1: Prepare the List of Images or Content:

Create a list of images or content that you want to display in the carousel slider. For this example, we'll use images.

List imageUrls = [

Step 2: Build the Carousel Slider Widget:

In the build method of your widget, create the carousel slider using the CarouselSlider widget.

  options: CarouselOptions(
    autoPlay: true,
    aspectRatio: 16/9,
    enlargeCenterPage: true,
    scrollDirection: Axis.horizontal,
    autoPlayCurve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn,
    autoPlayAnimationDuration: Duration(milliseconds: 800),
    viewportFraction: 0.8,
  items: imageUrls.map((url) {
    return Builder(
      builder: (BuildContext context) {
        return Container(
          width: MediaQuery.of(context).size.width,
          margin: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 5.0),
          decoration: BoxDecoration(
            color: Colors.grey,
          child: Image.network(url, fit: BoxFit.cover),
