Get Device Breakpoints with responsive_builder

Understand how to use device breakpoints while implementing responsive design with responsive_builder.

To make our Flutter applications responsive, we can use MediaQuery and LayoutBuilder to define the pixel breakpoints for each device class—desktop, tablet, and smartphone. Another solution is to use an existing package that defines the most common breakpoints, such as responsive_builder.

The responsive_builder package provides widgets that require less code when we’re implementing responsive design in our applications.

One of the widgets provided by responsive_builder is ResponsiveBuilder, which has a builder function with a parameter of type SizingInformation. A SizingInformation object contains the type of device, the size of the screen, and the local widget size, combining both MediaQuery and LayoutBuilder.
