prefix. Use this feature to find packages in the same framework.
dependency:package_name: Searches for packages that reference
package_namein their pubspec.
dependency*:package_name: Searches for packages that depend on
package_name(as direct, dev, or transitive dependencies).

The popularity score—representing how often a package is used—is derived from download statistics. Although this score is based on actual download counts, it compensates for automated tools such as continuous builds that fetch the package on each change request.
How can you improve your popularity score?
Create useful packages that others need and love to use.
The code health score is based on static analysis of the package with
How can you improve your health score?
Use strong-mode checks and linter rules, and make sure you fix all warnings
and errors before publishing. Here's an example of
checks and rules using
# https://www.dartlang.org/guides/language/analysis-options analyzer: strong-mode: true # Source of linter options: # http://dart-lang.github.io/linter/lints/options/options.html linter: rules: - camel_case_types - hash_and_equals - iterable_contains_unrelated_type - list_remove_unrelated_type - unrelated_type_equality_checks - valid_regexps
flutter analyze in case of Flutter),
and fix the items it returns (especially errors and warnings, hints barely
decrease the health score).
The maintenance score reflects how tidy and up-to-date a package is. Here are some of the factors that influence this score:
analysis_options.yaml: Best if this file is present, with strong mode enabled. For more information, see Customize Static Analysis.
How can you improve your maintenance score?
Click your package's overall score to see the Analysis page, which has suggestions for improving the package's score. Fix them, and release at least one new version every year to keep your maintenance score up.
You can find the overall score either near the top of the package's page or to the right of your package in any listing on this site. To get suggestions before publishing, run pana manually.
Default listings use composite scoring to sort packages. The score is based on the overall score, and if applicable, the platform specificity and the text match score is also factored in.
Each package's overall score is visible at the side of the results, regardless of the sort order.
