I am using the flutter_bloc package to manage state in my app. I have a usecase where I have to load the initial state from the remote DB. This requires the initialState method to be async, which it is not.
If not by using the initialState method, what is the best way to load the initial state of a Bloc from a remote DB ?
You can send an
event to the
bloc to start loading(on it event bloc send new
LoadingState) where you receive and show
Loader, then when loading ended
bloc send another `state with data and you just switch loading state to loaded(and show data). You don’t need to await call, what you have to do is just pushing and receiving states
