State management is a complex topic. It is one of the most important processes in the life cycle of an application. In Flutter State is whatever data you need in order to rebuild your UI at any moment in time. When this data change, it will trigger a redraw of the user interface.Here is a list of the most popular packages used for state management in Flutter:

1. Provider
A wrapper around InheritedWidgets to make them more reusable and easy to use. Uses a combination of ‘Provider’, ‘Consumer’, and ‘ChangeNotifier’ to expose and modify state in an efficient way.

We are using Provider in our products. But we noticed that Provider has not been updated since 9 months ago so is it going to discontinue?


Do you guys think? What is an alternative suggestion instead of Provider?
