credentials_helper

The idea behind this package is to provide a simple way to use various credentials in a project (particularly during development/testing) that is less prone to result in a private API key or the like being commited or published along with your code.

You can store your API keys, usernames, passwords, etc. in a JSON file that is either listed in your .gitignore or completely outside the project directory and load them into this class. You could also retrieve them from other JSON sources.

Example

credentials.json

{
  "api_key": "YOUR-API-KEY",
  "username": "yourUsername",
  "password": "yourPassword"
}

Dart code

import 'package:credentials_helper/credentials_helper.dart';

void main() {

  Credentials credentials = Credentials.fromFile('credentials.json');

  myApiCall(apiKey: credentials.apiKey);

}
