Run the generator

Generate the widgetbook#

The widgetbook_generator uses package:build_runner to generate the desired code.

You can execute the generator by running flutter pub run build_runner build. If you are making a lot of changes while developing, you can also run flutter pub run build_runner watch so package:build_runner will listen for changes in the file system and update Widgetbook accordingly.

Start the generated app#

The generator will create the app.widgetbook.dart file in the same directory as the file in which @WidgetbookApp is used. For details about this, see the documentation of package:widgetbook_annotation.

Start the app by running flutter run -t lib/app.widgetbook.dart -d macos.
