Lists are continuous, vertical indexes of text or images.

[DenseListItem] is a smaller/denser version of the Material [ListItem].

This component can be used to achieve the list item templates existing in the spec. One-line list items have a singular line of headline content. Two-line list items additionally have either supporting or overline content. Three-line list items have either both supporting and overline content, or extended (two-line) supporting text.

This ListItem handles click events, calling its [onClick] lambda. It also support selected state which can be toggled using the [selected] param.
