CSS Filter for Flutter

Use CSS filter effects on Flutter.

Version Build Status

IFstruct parser supports generating flutter code from iofod visually edited projects. We have separated its filter module code and added many preset effects to form the current CSS Filter for Flutter, which facilitates all flutter projects to use the excellent design of the Web: CSS filter.


  • Simple and efficient
  • Support multiple filter effects overlay
  • Rich preset effects.
  • Full platform support
  • Customize your own effect
  • Null-safety

Getting started

After importing the dependent, you can use the basic filters through CSSFilter.

import 'package:css_filter/css_filter.dart';

CSSFilter.contrast(child: const Text('foo'), value: 1.2);

Support filters:

  • contrast()
  • grayscale()
  • sepia()
  • hueRotate()
  • brightness()
  • saturate()
  • invert()
  • blur()
  • opacity()

You can combine and overlay these filters in flutter just as you would with a CSS filter. Use CSSFilter.apply in conjunction with CSSFilterMatrix(). Such as:

  child: const Text('bar'),
  value: CSSFilterMatrix().contrast(1.2).sepia(0.8).hueRotate(90.0).invert(0.9).opacity(0.9)

Note: the order of the chain calls represents the order in which the filters are applied, and the order in which the filter effects are applied affects the final result.

Use presets

The CSSgram project does an excellent job of providing the CSS world with Instagram-like filters, and instagram.css complements it with more types of filters. We’ve combined these two libraries to encapsulate several presets that can call through CSSFilterPresets.

import 'package:css_filter/css_filter.dart';

CSSFilterPresets.insXpro2(child: const Text('Your widget'));

Support effects:

Similar to CSSFilter, we provide the apply method for CSSFilterPresets to invoke presets consistently, and apply additionally supports setting the intensity of the filter effect used. To do so:

/// You can replace the value parameter with any of the supported effects.
  child: YourWidget,
  value: CSSFilterPresets.insNashville, 
  strength: 0.7

Customize your own filter preset

CSSFilter provides the most basic filters, CSSFilterPresets collects the commonly used combinations of basic filters as presets, meaning you can also customize your own filter presets based on the basic filters.

customPreset({ required Widget child }) {
  return CSSFilter.apply(
    child: child, 
    value: CSSFilterMatrix().sepia(0.2).saturate(1.4)

/// Used by CSSFilterPresets to set the intensity of the effect.
  child: YourWidget,
  value: customPreset,
  strength: 0.9

/// It also supports direct use.
customPreset(child: YourWidget);
