Add the required package in your pubspec.yaml file and then run the below-mentioned command

flutter pub get (As a result this command gets all the dependencies listed in the pubspec. yaml file)

To know more about pubspec.yaml please check this link.


Now, the setup is complete and then we can move forward to the implementation in our flutter application.

Note:- Here I’m using the simple example for the demonstration of this package you can use this package according to your needs.

1- Add the below line in your class to import the package.
import ‘package:pull_to_refresh/pull_to_refresh.dart’;

2- Make a function to handle your business logic while refreshing the UI

3- Then create your view and start the implementation

Note:- In some cases, you will notice that the refresh indicator is not showing.
To make it visible all the time please use the physics property. In Flutter all the scrollable widgets have physics properties.

physics: const AlwaysScrollPhysics()

Complete the above mentioned code then you will get this output.

As a result, you will get the same output as below attached video.
