"Use key in widget constructors" warning each time I create a new widget

Issue

I’ve started getting a warning every time I create a new class.

enter image description here

Use key in widget constructors.

Prefer const with constant constructor.

and so on. Where these errors are coming from and how do I get rid of it?

Solution

Solution 1:

Open analysis_options.yaml file which is located at the root of your project:

include: package:flutter_lints/flutter.yaml

# Add these lines
linter:
  rules:
    use_key_in_widget_constructors: false

Solution 2:

To disable the rule for a specific file, put this line anywhere in your code.

// ignore_for_file: prefer_const_constructors

Solution 3:

Recently Flutter team created a new package flutter_lints and it’s added to your analysis_options.yaml file by default for newly created project.

You can simply remove the following line from your analysis_options.yaml file:

include: package:flutter_lints/flutter.yaml

However, I would suggest you to at least have some rules in it, for example, you can add these rules (from pedantic) and remove the one you don’t want.

linter:
  rules:
    - always_declare_return_types
    - always_require_non_null_named_parameters
    - annotate_overrides
    - avoid_init_to_null
    - avoid_null_checks_in_equality_operators
    - avoid_relative_lib_imports
    - avoid_return_types_on_setters
    - avoid_shadowing_type_parameters
    - avoid_single_cascade_in_expression_statements
