In this article, I'm going to share an example of how to implement RefreshIndicator widget with a ListView which is populated from JSON. 

Here is the final main.dart code. All you need to do is to, copy paste this code into your newly created flutter project and run it.

import 'dart:async';
import 'dart:convert';

import 'package:flutter/foundation.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:http/http.dart' as http;

Future<List<Photo>> fetchPhotos(http.Client client) async {
final response =
await client.get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/photos');

// Use the compute function to run parsePhotos in a separate isolate
return compute(parsePhotos, response.body);
}

// A function that will convert a response body into a List<Photo>
List<Photo> parsePhotos(String responseBody) {
final parsed = json.decode(responseBody).cast<Map<String, dynamic>>();
return parsed.map<Photo>((json) => Photo.fromJson(json)).toList();
}

class Photo {
final int albumId;
final int id;
final String title;
final String url;
final String thumbnailUrl;

Photo({this.albumId, this.id, this.title, this.url, this.thumbnailUrl});

factory Photo.fromJson(Map<String, dynamic> json) {
return Photo(
albumId: json['albumId'] as int,
id: json['id'] as int,
title: json['title'] as String,
url: json['url'] as String,
thumbnailUrl: json['thumbnailUrl'] as String,
);
}
}

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return MaterialApp(
title: 'Flutter Demo',
theme: ThemeData(
primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
),
home: MyHomePage(title: 'Flutter Demo Home Page'),
);
}
}

class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
MyHomePage({Key key, this.title}) : super(key: key);

final String title;

@override
_MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}

class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
int _count = 0;

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return Scaffold(
appBar: AppBar(
title: Text(widget.title),
),
body: Padding(
child: FutureBuilder<List<Photo>>(
future: fetchPhotos(http.Client()),
builder: (context, snapshot) {
if (snapshot.hasError) print(snapshot.error);

return snapshot.hasData
? RefreshIndicator(
child: PhotosList(photos: snapshot.data, count: _count + 2),
onRefresh: _refreshhandle,
)
: Center(child: CircularProgressIndicator());
},
),
padding: EdgeInsets.fromLTRB(1.0, 10.0, 1.0, 10.0),
),
);
}

Future<Null> _refreshhandle() async {
setState(() {
_count++;
});
return null;
}
}

class PhotosList extends StatelessWidget {
final List<Photo> photos;
final int count;
PhotosList({Key key, this.photos, this.count}) : super(key: key);
@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return ListView.builder(
itemCount: count,
itemBuilder: (context, index) {
return Column(
children: <Widget>[
Container(
constraints: BoxConstraints.expand(
height: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.fontSize * 1.1 +
200.0,
),
color: Colors.white10,
alignment: Alignment.center,
child: Card(
child: Column(
mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min,
children: <Widget>[
ListTile(
leading: Image.network(
photos[count - index - 1].thumbnailUrl,
fit: BoxFit.fitWidth,
),
title: Text(photos[count - index - 1].title),
subtitle: Text(photos[count - index - 1].title),
),
ButtonTheme.bar(
// make buttons use the appropriate styles for cards
child: ButtonBar(
children: <Widget>[
FlatButton(
child: const Text('Open'),
onPressed: () {/* ... */},
),
],
),
),
],
),
)),
],
);
},
);
}
}


Hope this example is helpful. 

Thanks,
Srikanth
