In today’s digital age, QR codes have become an integral part of our lives. From accessing websites to making payments, QR codes simplify our interactions with technology. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to generate QR codes effortlessly using Flutter, a popular framework for building cross-platform mobile applications.

Getting Started

To get started, make sure you have Flutter installed on your system. If not, you can follow the installation instructions on the official Flutter website.

Once Flutter is set up, create a new Flutter project and add the pretty_qr_code package to your pubspec.yaml file:

    sdk: flutter
  pretty_qr_code: <latest_version>

After adding the dependency, run flutter pub get to install the package.

Implementing QR Code Generation

We’ll create a simple Flutter widget called QRGenerate that allows users to enter text and generates a QR code based on the input.

// Import necessary packages
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:pretty_qr_code/pretty_qr_code.dart';

// QRGenerate Widget
class QRGenerate extends StatefulWidget {
  const QRGenerate({Key? key});

  _QRGenerateState createState() => _QRGenerateState();

class _QRGenerateState extends State<QRGenerate> {
  // Controller for the text input field
  TextEditingController textController = TextEditingController();

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text('QR Code Generator'), // Title for the app bar
      body: Center(
        child: Column(
          children: [
            // Container to display the generated QR code
              height: 250,
              width: 250,
              child: PrettyQrView(
                data: textController.text, // Data for generating QR code
                size: 250, // Size of the QR code
                errorCorrectLevel: QrErrorCorrectLevel.L, // Error correction level
                roundEdges: true, // Round the edges of the QR code
            SizedBox(height: 20), // Spacer
            // Text input field for entering data
              padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 20),
              child: TextField(
                controller: textController,
                decoration: InputDecoration(
                  hintText: 'Enter text...', // Placeholder text
                  border: OutlineInputBorder(), // Border decoration
