The comments on the code provide more detailed explanation

The code is based on flutter version 1 and 2.

Main.dart (App entry point)

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'center.dart';

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

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  // This widget is the root of your application.
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Flutter Demo',
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      theme: ThemeData(
        // This is the theme of your application.
        //
        // Try running your application with "flutter run". You'll see the
        // application has a blue toolbar. Then, without quitting the app, try
        // changing the primarySwatch below to Colors.green and then invoke
        // "hot reload" (press "r" in the console where you ran "flutter run",
        // or simply save your changes to "hot reload" in a Flutter IDE).
        // Notice that the counter didn't reset back to zero; the application
        // is not restarted.
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
      ),
      home: Center(),
    );
  }
}

center.dart

class BasicCenter extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(title: Text("Basic Center Widget")),
      body: Center(
        //set propertices like widthFactor or heightFactor if you want the widget to resize based on the child's size
        //for example, if heightFactor is 3.0 then the height of this widget will always be three times its child's height.
        //same goes for the widthFactor
        //heightFactor: 3.0,
        child: Container(height: 50.0, width: 50.0, color: Colors.red),
      ),
    );
