version 1.0.7 build status

RethinkDB-enabled services for the Angel framework.


Add the following to your pubspec.yaml:

  angel_rethink: ^1.0.0

package:rethinkdb_driver2 will be installed as well.


This library exposes one class: RethinkService. By default, these services will even listen to changefeeds from the database, which makes them very suitable for WebSocket use.

However, only CREATED, UPDATED and REMOVED events will be fired. This is technically not a problem, as it lowers the numbers of events you have to handle on the client side. ;)


Model is class with no real functionality; however, it represents a basic document, and your services should host inherited classes. Other Angel service providers host Model as well, so you will easily be able to modify your application if you ever switch databases.

class User extends Model {
  String username;
  String password;

main() async {
    var r = new RethinkDb();
    var conn = await r.connect();

    app.use('/api/users', new RethinkService(conn, r.table('users')));
    // Add type de/serialization if you want
    app.use('/api/users', new TypedService<User>(new RethinkService(conn, r.table('users'))));

    // You don't have to even use a table...
    app.use('/api/pro_users', new RethinkService(conn, r.table('users').filter({'membership': 'pro'})));
    app.service('api/users').afterCreated.listen((event) {
        print("New user: ${event.result}");


This class interacts with a Query (usually a table) and serializes data to and from Maps.


Does the same as above, but serializes to and from a target class using package:json_god and its support for reflection.


You can query these services as follows:


The above will query the database to find records where 'foo' equals 'bar'.

The former will sort result in ascending order of creation, and so will the latter.

You can use advanced queries:

// Pass an actual query...
service.index({'query': r.table('foo').filter(...)});

// Or, a function that creates a query from a table...
service.index({'query': (table) => table.getAll('foo')});

// Or, a Map, which will be transformed into a `filter` query:
service.index({'query': {'foo': 'bar', 'baz': 'quux'}});

You can also apply sorting by adding a reql parameter on the server-side.

service.index({'reql': (query) => query.sort(...)});

See the tests for more usage examples.


  • Moved to package:rethinkdb_driver
  • Fixed references to old hooked event names.

Analysis issues and suggestions

Fix dependencies in pubspec.yaml.

Running pub upgrade failed with the following output:

ERR: The current Dart SDK version is 2.1.0.
 Because angel_rethink depends on rethinkdb_driver >=0.3.0 which requires SDK version <2.0.0, version solving failed.
