In this tutorial, we will create the first example of our webview application using flutter, and this is the simplest way to showcase a webpage in our app.

This series will be split into four because we’re going to unveil four examples of a webview app we can use in a flutter application.

I have already written two articles on this same topics before but there are fresh features on the package used

  1. Convert your website into a mobile application in just a few minutes using flutter.
  2. Flutter Advanced Webview Tutorial #1 — InAppWebview(Android & iOS).

Firstly, we’re going to use the flutter_webview_plugin package for PART ONE. Son install this package in your app by pasting it in your pubspec.yaml file.

Create a new dart file for the webview page and name it webApp1.dart or so 🤷‍♂️, after creating the dart file, then inside the file {webApp1.dart} create a StatefulWidget and name the class as you wish, I will name mine ## WebExampleOne 😎.

In the build widget, we’re going to return the webview widget called ==> WebviewScaffold instead of returning a normal Scaffold widget 🤢.

But before that, you need to import our material widget and the flutter_webview_plugin widget as well

import 'package:flutter/material.dart'; 
import 'package:flutter_webview_plugin/flutter_webview_plugin.dart';

And that’s all, we can now work on our WebviewScaffold, if you press CTRL + SPACE ==> (Both Windows and Mac) inside the bracket of the WebviewScaffold( ) you will see a list of resources you can make use of while the URL is required,

url: 'https://obounce.net'

Then, after that you can just explore other useful methods you might need

appBar: AppBar(
title: Text("O'Bounce Technologies"),
centerTitle: true,
elevation: 0,
withZoom: true,
withLocalStorage: true,
scrollBar: true,
withJavascript: true,
initialChild: Center(child: Text('Loading...')),
bottomNavigationBar: Padding(
padding: EdgeInsets.all(12),
child: Text('This is the bottomNavigationBar on a webview page.'),
persistentFooterButtons: [
backgroundColor: Colors.purple,
child: Text('btn1'),
backgroundColor: Colors.orange,
child: Text('btn2'),
backgroundColor: Colors.red,
child: Text('btn3'),
backgroundColor: Colors.grey[700],
child: Text('btn4'),

And that’s all the major stuff we need 👌, You should check out the video for more explanation.
