Animation<T> class Null safety

An animation with a value of type T.

An animation consists of a value (of type T) together with a status. The status indicates whether the animation is conceptually running from beginning to end or from the end back to the beginning, although the actual value of the animation might not change monotonically (e.g., if the animation uses a curve that bounces).

Animations also let other objects listen for changes to either their value or their status. These callbacks are called during the "animation" phase of the pipeline, just prior to rebuilding widgets.

To create a new animation that you can run forward and backward, consider using AnimationController.
