Flutter redux Navigator.pop() in StoreConnector after user login

Issue

How I can do Navigator.of(context).pop((route) => false);
In my Login screen

class _LoginState extends State<Login> with SingleTickerProviderStateMixin {
  String email = '';
  String password = '';
  final Store<AppState> store;
  final _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

  _LoginState(this.store);


  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new StoreConnector<AppState, LoginViewModel>(
      converter: ((Store<AppState> store) => LoginViewModel.create(store)),
      builder: (BuildContext context, LoginViewModel viewModel)  {
        if(viewModel.user.email != '') {
           Navigator.of(context).pop((route) => false);
           return null;
        }
        return (
          viewModel.isLoading ? 
            Center(...)
            :
            Scaffold(...)

This works, but shows errors.

Element.markNeedsBuild.<anonymous closure> (package:flutter/src/widgets/framework.dart:4167:11)
I/flutter (13435): #1      Element.markNeedsBuild (package:flutter/src/widgets/framework.dart:4182:6)
I/flutter (13435): #2      State.setState (package:flutter/src/widgets/framework.dart:1253:14)
...

I write here because I do not even know how to formulate a query on Google due to the fact that I am computerized in fluutter (I deal with react)

Solution

Ideally, you should not call Navigator inside the widget tree hence you are getting an error.

To do so StoreConnector has onWillChange method. It is a function that will be run on State change, before the Widget is built. (Similar to componentWillUpdate in react class components)

class _LoginState extends State<Login> with SingleTickerProviderStateMixin {
  String email = '';
  String password = '';
  final Store<AppState> store;
  final _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

  _LoginState(this.store);


  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new StoreConnector<AppState, LoginViewModel>(
      converter: ((Store<AppState> store) => LoginViewModel.create(store)),
      onWillChange: (LoginViewModel prev, LoginViewModel viewModel) {
        if(viewModel.user.email != '') {
           Navigator.of(context).pop((route) => false);
           return null;
        }
      },
      builder: (BuildContext context, LoginViewModel viewModel)  {
        return (
          viewModel.isLoading ? 
            Center(...)
            :
            Scaffold(...)

You can explore other methods exposed by StoreConnector in the source code. (Github Link)
