class HomePage extends StatefulWidget {

  _HomePageState createState() => _HomePageState();
}

class _HomePageState extends State<HomePage> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text('Home'),
      ),
      backgroundColor: Colors.white,
      body: SafeArea(
        child: Center(child: BlinkIcon()),
      ),
    );
  }
}

class BlinkIcon extends StatefulWidget{
  @override
  _BlinkIconState createState() => _BlinkIconState();
}

class _BlinkIconState extends State<BlinkIcon> with SingleTickerProviderStateMixin{
  AnimationController _controller;
  Animation<Color> _colorAnimation;

  @override
  void initState() {
    _controller = AnimationController(vsync: this, duration: Duration(milliseconds: 500));
    _colorAnimation = ColorTween(begin: Colors.blue, end: Colors.orange)
        .animate(CurvedAnimation(parent: _controller, curve: Curves.linear));

    _controller.addStatusListener((status) {
      if (status == AnimationStatus.completed) {
        _controller.reverse();
      } else if (status == AnimationStatus.dismissed) {
        _controller.forward();
      }
      setState(() {});
    });

    _controller.forward();

    super.initState();
  }
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return AnimatedBuilder(
      animation: _controller,
      builder: (context, child) {
        return Icon(Icons.home, size: 128, color: _colorAnimation.value,);
      },
    );
  }
}
