SearchWidget

This widget help you to create a simple Search page, you need create a class and extend SearchWidget.

class CitySearchWidget extends SearchWidget<List<CityModel>> {
    CitySearchWidget();

    @override
    Widget buildResult(BuildContext context, List<CityModel> result) {
        return ListView.separated(
            itemCount: result.length,
            itemBuilder: (context, index) => buildItemView(context, result[index]),
            separatorBuilder: (context, index) => Divider(),
        );
    }

    @override
    bool canSearch(BuildContext context, String query) {
        return query.length > 3;
    }

    @override
    Future<List<CityModel>> search(String query) {
        return Module.of<AppModule>().service<OpenWeatherApi>().searchCities(query);
    }

    buildItem(BuildContext context, CityModel city) {
        return ListTile(
            leading: Image.network('http://openweathermap.org/img/wn/${city.weather[0].icon}@2x.png'),
            title: buildItemTitle(city),
            onTap: () {
                Module.of<AppModule>().service<AppService>().updateCurrentCity(context, city.id);
                close(context);
            },
        );
    }

    buildItemTitle(CityModel city) {
        return Row(
            children: <Widget>[
            Image.network('http://openweathermap.org/images/flags/${city.sys.country.toLowerCase()}.png'),
            Padding(padding: EdgeInsets.all(2),),
            Text(city.name),
            Padding(padding: EdgeInsets.all(2),),
            ],
        );
    }
}

Customize package locations

First let's create the custom internationalization that will extend the default package location. You should override customValues and enter only the messages you want to change.

import 'package:useful_widgets/useful_widgets.dart';

class CustomLocalization extends UsefulWidgetsLocalizations {
  CustomLocalization(Locale locale) : super(locale);
  
  @override
  Map<dynamic, Map<dynamic, String>> get customValues => {
    'en': {
      WidgetMessages.message1: 'Custom first message',
      WidgetMessages.message2: 'Custom second message',
    },
    'es': {
      WidgetMessages.message1: 'Primer mensaje personalizado',
      WidgetMessages.message2: 'Segundo mensaje personalizado',
    },
    'pt': {
      WidgetMessages.message1: 'Primeira mensagem personalizada',
      WidgetMessages.message2: 'Segunda mensagem personalizada',
    }
  };
}

And finally, inform the delegate in localizationsDelegates of your apps MaterialApp.

MaterialApp(
  localizationsDelegates: [
    UsefulWidgetsLocalizationsDelegate((locale) => CustomLocalization(locale)),
  ],
)
