How to load async data on InitState method?

Use StreamBuilder to do this. This will run the builder method whenever the data in stream changes.

Try the Below code snippet :

StreamBuilder<List<Content>> _getContentsList(BuildContext context) {
    final BlocProvider blocProvider = BlocProvider.of(context);
    int page = 1;
    return StreamBuilder<List<Content>>(
        stream: blocProvider.contentBloc.contents,
        initialData: [],
        builder: (context, snapshot) {
          if ( {
            return ListView.builder(itemBuilder: (context, index) {
              if (index < {
                return ContentBox(content:;
              } else if (index / 5 == page) {
          } else {
            return Center(
              child: CircularProgressIndicator(),

Initially, it is an empty array and shows the CircularProgressIndicator. Once you make an API call the data fetched is added to the contents array, which will run the builder method. When the user scrolls down, more content is fetched and added to the contents array which will again run the builder method.

Another method would be to create an async method and call it from your initState( ) a method is shown below:

 void initState() {

 void asyncMethod() async {
   await asyncCall1();
   await asyncCall2();
   // ....
