Learning Objectives

  • Use Navigator to navigate between pages
  • Use named routes


1. Second Page

Create a new Flutter project. Add a new widget in lib/second.dart that has Scaffold and the body shows a text This is the second page in the center. The FloatingActionButton of the default page should navigate to the second page.

Note: You can do this easily using Navigator.push

2. Named Pages

Modify the previous project to use named routes. Use MaterialApp’s routes property to define the routes. The default page should navigate to the second page using the name second.

Just like with assets, it’s always a good practice to keep the route name constants as a class instead of using string everywhere.

class RouteNames {
    static const String second = 'second';
    static ocnst String home = 'home';
