If you are listing items then probably you are using listview. How about with just a few lines of code you animate that list as data changes. This piece will explore such examples in a step by step manner.

Example 1: Impliciltly Animate a List

Throyugh this solution you can just pass the original list data to the ImplicitlyAnimatedList class as well as an itemBuilder for building a widget from one data point and it'll animate whenever the data changes.

Here is what will be created:

Flutter List Animation

Step 1: Copy ImplicitlyAnimatedList class

Copy this file into your project.

Step 2: Write Code

Here's how you use it, you pass your list as well as well as an itemBuilder:

ImplicitlyAnimatedList(
  // When you change items of this list and hot reload, the list animates. 
  itemData: [1, 2, 3, 4],
  itemBuilder: (_, number) => ListTile(title: Text('$number')),
),

It works with all classes and works well with StreamBuilder:

class User {
  String firstName;
  String lastName;

  // The ImplicitlyAnimatedList uses the == operator to compare items.
  bool operator== (Object other) => other is User
    && firstName == other.firstName
    && lastName == other.lastName;
}

...

StreamBuilder<List<User>>(
  stream: someSource.usersStream,
  builder: (context, snapshot) {
    if (!snapshot.hasData) {
      return ...;
    }
    return ImplicitlyAnimatedList(
      itemData: snapshot.data,
      itemBuilder: (context, user) {
        return ListTile(title: Text('${user.firstName} ${user.lastName}'));
      }
    );
  }
),

Full Example

Let's look at a full example. Start by copying the ImplicitlyAnimatedList file into your project as we had stated above.

Then make your imports:

import 'dart:math';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:implicitly_animated_list/implicitly_animated_list.dart';

In the main method you will run the MyApp instance:

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

You create the MyApp as a stateful widget:

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

Then you create the state class:

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {

A variable array that will hold numbers generated randomly is included as an instance field of this state class:

  var numbers = <int>[];

Build the page containing a floatingaction button:

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      title: 'Flutter Demo',
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Implicitly animated list')),
        floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton.extended(
          label: Text('Generate numbers'),
          icon: Icon(Icons.directions_walk),

When the floating action button is pressed, numbers will be generated randomly using the List.generate() function:

          onPressed: () => setState(() {
            numbers = List.generate(10, (_) => Random().nextInt(10));
            print(numbers);
          }),

Then in the body, you pass that generated numbers array to the ImplicitlyAnimatedList class:

        body: ImplicitlyAnimatedList(
          itemData: numbers,
          itemBuilder: (_, number) => ListTile(title: Text('$number')),
        ),

Here is the full code:

main.dart

import 'dart:math';

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:implicitly_animated_list/implicitly_animated_list.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  var numbers = <int>[];

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      title: 'Flutter Demo',
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Implicitly animated list')),
        floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton.extended(
          label: Text('Generate numbers'),
          icon: Icon(Icons.directions_walk),
          onPressed: () => setState(() {
            numbers = List.generate(10, (_) => Random().nextInt(10));
            print(numbers);
          }),
        ),
        body: ImplicitlyAnimatedList(
          itemData: numbers,
          itemBuilder: (_, number) => ListTile(title: Text('$number')),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

Run

To run the code, copy the ImplicitlyAnimatedList file into your project, then replace your main.dart with the above code.
