thx for any answer

Solution

It’s not hard, but you need to do several things.

  1. You need to create your own theme styles. I’ve used inherited widget to do it. (If you change ThemeData widget it will animate the change, and we don’t need it, that’s why I’m saving Colors in another class)
  2. Find the button (or in my case switcher) coordinates.
  3. Run animation.

I’ve converted our code to a package with simple api.

import 'package:equatable/equatable.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return BrandTheme(
      child: Builder(builder: (context) {
        return MaterialApp(
          title: 'Flutter Demo',
          theme: BrandTheme.of(context).themeData,
          home: MyHomePage(),
        );
      }),
    );
  }
}

GlobalKey switherGlobalKey = GlobalKey();

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  MyHomePage({Key key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage>
    with SingleTickerProviderStateMixin {
  AnimationController _controller;

  @override
  void initState() {
    _controller = AnimationController(
      duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 300),
      vsync: this,
    );

    _controller.forward();
    super.initState();
  }

  @override
  void dispose() {
    _controller.dispose();

    super.dispose();
  }

  int _counter = 0;
  BrandThemeModel oldTheme;
  Offset switcherOffset;

  void _incrementCounter() {
    setState(() {
      _counter++;
    });
  }

  _getPage(brandTheme, {isFirst = false}) {
    return Scaffold(
      backgroundColor: brandTheme.color2,
      appBar: AppBar(
        backgroundColor: brandTheme.color1,
        title: Text(
          'Flutter Demo Home Page',
          style: TextStyle(color: brandTheme.textColor2),

      ),
      body: Center(

            Text(
              '$_counter',
              style: TextStyle(color: brandTheme.textColor1, fontSize: 200),
            ),
            Switch(
              key: isFirst ? switherGlobalKey : null,
              onChanged: (needDark) {
                oldTheme = brandTheme;
                BrandTheme.instanceOf(context).changeTheme(
                  needDark ? BrandThemeKey.dark : BrandThemeKey.light,
