ResponsiveContainer(

  // Determines the container's limit size
  widthLimit: ResponsiveScreen.limits['lg'],
  margin: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 10),
  
  children: <Widget>[
  
    ResponsiveRow(),
    ResponsiveRow(),
    ResponsiveRow(),
    
  ]
)
  • ResponsiveRow: Container wich contains many columns or even other widget.
    OBS: Its not necessary to wrap inner widgets into a ResponsiveCol object.
ResponsiveRow(

  margin: EdgeInsets.only(top: 20, bottom: 5),
  
  children: <Widget>[
  
    ResponsiveCol(),
    ResponsiveCol(),
    ResponsiveCol(),
    
    Text('It´s fine to use another widget directly inside a ResponsiveRow', style: ResponsiveTypography.q)
  ]
),
  • ResponsiveCol:
ResponsiveCol(
  margin: EdgeInsets.all(10),
  padding: EdgeInsets.all(10),
  backgroundColor: Colors.blue,
  gridSizes: {
      'xs' : 4,
      'sm' : 3,
      'lg' : 2,
