Rotation Transition to rotate anticlockwise flutter

Issue

I have this code that makes the icon rotate clockwise. I want to make it rotate anticlockwise. how can I do that?

    animationController =
    AnimationController(vsync: this, duration: Duration(seconds: 3))
      ..repeat(reverse: true);

RotationTransition(
            turns: animationController,
            child: Icon(Icons.settings_sharp),
            alignment: Alignment.center,
          )

Solution

Concerning RotationTransition widget rotation direction is manipulated by turns property.

When widget rotates clockwise controllers value goes from 0.0 to 1.0.

To rotate in opposite direction you need value to go from 1.0. to 0.0.

To achieve that, you can set up Tween:

final Tween<double> turnsTween = Tween<double>(
    begin: 1,
    end: 0,
  );

And animate this tween in turns property with any AnimationController you need:

child: RotationTransition(
    turns: turnsTween.animate(_controller),
    ...

Sample result and code to reproduce:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

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

/// This is the main application widget.
class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  const MyApp({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  static const String _title = 'Flutter Code Sample';

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return const MaterialApp(
      title: _title,
      home: MyStatefulWidget(),
    );
  }
}

/// This is the stateful widget that the main application instantiates.
class MyStatefulWidget extends StatefulWidget {
  const MyStatefulWidget({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  State<MyStatefulWidget> createState() => _MyStatefulWidgetState();
}

/// This is the private State class that goes with MyStatefulWidget.
/// AnimationControllers can be created with `vsync: this` because of TickerProviderStateMixin.
class _MyStatefulWidgetState extends State<MyStatefulWidget>
    with TickerProviderStateMixin {
  late final AnimationController _controller = AnimationController(
    duration: const Duration(seconds: 4),
    vsync: this,
  )..repeat();

  final Tween<double> turnsTween = Tween<double>(
    begin: 1,
    end: 0,
  );

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

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Center(
        child: RotationTransition(
          turns: turnsTween.animate(_controller),
          child: const Padding(
            padding: EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
            child: FlutterLogo(size: 150.0),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}
