Reload / Restart app in flutter


In this blog, we will see how to reload/restart the flutter app. Actually, I have many ways and pub packages to restart the app and found this way to be the best to reload the app using just a few blocks of codes. In my code, I wrap the whole app into a statefulwidget. And when you want to restart the app, rebuild that stateful widget with a child that possesses a different Key. If you want to use a package then you can use the flutter_phoenix package.
Let’s Start the implementation part.
First, I will create a RestartWidget. This class contain the whole app. The UniqueKey always return a unique value which proves the widget a unique id.

Now we will call the RestartWidget from Main method in the code.

Now, call restartApp method from anywhere in the code it will restart the application.
