How to integrate ButterCMS into your Flutter application

Just follow the simple steps below to complete the integration and begin creating pages with Butter. Be sure to check out our full guide to creating pages using the ButterCMS Flutter API.

First you would set up a new Customer Case Study page type in Butter and create a page. With your page defined, the ButterCMS API will return it in JSON format like this:

{
  "data": {
    "slug": "homepage",
    "page_type": null,
    "fields": {
      "seo_title": "Anvils and Dynamite | Acme Co",
      "headline": "Acme Co provides supplies to your favorite cartoon heroes.",
      "hero_image": "https://cdn.buttercms.com/c8oSTGcwQDC5I58km5WV",
      "call_to_action": "Buy Now",
      "customer_logos": [
        {
          "logo_image": "https://cdn.buttercms.com/c8oSTGcwQDC5I58km5WV"
        },
        {
          "logo_image": "https://cdn.buttercms.com/c8oSTGcwQDC5I58km5WV"
        }
      ]
    }
  }
}

To create these pages in our app, create the home_page.dart file:

import 'dart:convert';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:buttercms_dart/buttercms_dart.dart';

class HomePage extends StatefulWidget {
 @override
 _HomePageState createState() => _HomePageState();
}

class _HomePageState extends State {
 Butter butter = Butter("YOUR_API_KEY");

 Map jsonMap;

 @override
 void initState() {
   super.initState();
   butter.page.retrieve("*", "homepage").then((response) {
     setState(() {
       // First fetch the json response,then decode into a map
       jsonMap = json.decode(response.body);
     });
   });
 }

 @override
 Widget build(BuildContext context) {
   return Scaffold(
     appBar: AppBar(
       title: Text("Home Page"),
     ),
     body: jsonMap == null ? _buildLoadingScreen() : _buildBody(),
   );
 }

 Widget _buildLoadingScreen() {
   return Center(
     child: CircularProgressIndicator(),
   );
 }

 Widget _buildBody() {
   return ListView(
     children: [
       Padding(
         padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
         child: Text(jsonMap["fields"]["seo_title"]),
       ),
       Padding(
         padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
         child: Text(jsonMap["fields"]["headline"]),
       ),
       Padding(
         padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
         child: Image.network(jsonMap["fields"]["hero_image"]),
       ),
       Padding(
         padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
         child: FlatButton(
           onPressed: () {},
           child: Text(
             jsonMap["fields"]["call_to_action"],
           ),
         ),
       ),
       Padding(
         padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
         child: Text("Customers love us!"),
       ),
       ...jsonMap["customer_logos"]
           .map((logo) => Image.network(logo["logo_image"]))
           .toList(),
     ],
   );
 }
}

The plugin also allows us to retrieve multiple pages using list() instead of retrieve().

We will try to list multiple client pages as:

import 'dart:convert';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:buttercms_dart/buttercms_dart.dart';

class PagesListScreen extends StatefulWidget {
 @override
 _PagesListScreenState createState() => _PagesListScreenState();
}

class _PagesListScreenState extends State {
 Butter butter = Butter("YOUR_API_KEY");

 Map jsonMap;

 @override
 void initState() {
   super.initState();
   butter.page.list("customer_case_study").then((response) {
     setState(() {
       // First fetch the json response,then decode into a map
       jsonMap = json.decode(response.body);
     });
   });
 }

 @override
 Widget build(BuildContext context) {
   return Scaffold(
     appBar: AppBar(
       title: Text("Pages"),
     ),
     body: jsonMap == null ? _buildLoadingScreen() : _buildBody(),
   );
 }

 Widget _buildLoadingScreen() {
   return Center(
     child: CircularProgressIndicator(),
   );
 }

 Widget _buildBody() {
   List pages = jsonMap["data"];

   return ListView.builder(
     itemBuilder: (context, position) {
       return ListTile(
         title: Text(pages[position]["fields"]["headline"]),
         leading: Image.network(
           pages[position]["fields"]["customer_logo"],
           width: 40.0,
           height: 40.0,
         ),
       );
     },
     itemCount: pages.length,
   );
 }
}

That's it! If you browse to your homepage you'll see your homepage populated with the content you created in Butter.

ButterCMS is an API-based headless CMS. We're a hosted service and we maintain all the infrastructure. We play nicely with an expanding list of leading technologies, including:

About ButterCMS

What kind of database can I use?

No database required! We're a SaaS CMS or CaaS. You simply call our Content API from your app. We host and maintain all of the CMS infrastructure.

Do you host my templates?

Unlike CMSs you might be used to, we don't control or host any of your templates. The design of your app (HTML + CSS) lives in your application along side the rest of your app. Your application calls our Content API and we return your content in JSON format. You can then render this content in any way you'd like.

Can I import my content?

Yep. To import existing content from another platform, simply send us an email.

How do you compare to WordPress?

In short, we offer all the same easy-to-use editing capabilities of WordPress but are significantly easier for developers to setup and maintain. This means you spend less time working on your CMS and more time focusing on things important to your business.

Can I self host Butter?

No, we're a SaaS CMS or CaaS. You simply call our Content API from your app. We host and maintain all of the CMS infrastructure.

For more information on how we compare to a traditional CMS, check out API-based CMS vs Traditional CMS on the Butter blog. Do you have more questions? Read our FAQ below, or feel free to chat with us directly.
