Implementing Dependency Injection with GetX in Flutter

Dependency injection is a powerful technique for managing dependencies in software development. It allows for the decoupling of components, improves code maintainability, and facilitates unit testing.

In the context of Flutter, the GetX package provides built-in dependency injection capabilities. Let's explore how to implement dependency injection using GetX in a Flutter application:


1. Install GetX Package:

Before we begin, make sure you have the Get package installed in your Flutter project. You can add it as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file:

    sdk: flutter
  get: ^4.3.8

2. Create Services or Controllers:

In the context of dependency injection, services or controllers are the classes that contain the business logic and functionality. Let's create an example CounterService class:

import 'package:get/get.dart';

class CounterService extends GetxController {
  var count = 0;

  void increment() {

3. Inject Dependencies:

In GetX, dependencies can be injected and accessed using the Get.put() method. Inject the CounterService into the desired widget or controller:

class MyHomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  final CounterService counterService = Get.put(CounterService());

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Dependency Injection with GetX')),
      body: Center(
        child: Column(
          children: [
            Obx(() => Text('Count: ${counterService.count}')),
              onPressed: () => counterService.increment(),
              child: Text('Increment'),


In the above code, we define a CounterService class that extends GetxController. This service holds a count variable that represents a counter value. The increment() method increments the counter.

In the MyHomePage widget, we inject the CounterService using Get.put(). This makes the CounterService instance available throughout the widget tree.

Within the widget's build() method, we use the Obx() widget provided by GetX to observe changes to the counterService.count variable. This ensures that the UI is updated whenever the count changes. The ElevatedButton triggers the increment() method of the CounterService when pressed.


Dependency injection with GetX simplifies the management of dependencies and enhances the modularity and testability of Flutter applications. By using the Get.put() method, you can easily inject and access dependencies throughout your application. This promotes loose coupling and makes your code more maintainable and flexible.

Feel free to experiment with the provided code and explore further possibilities with the GetX package.
