Dart Box

Build Status

A fluent Dart persistence API inspired by SQL. This library is still in an early phase of development. Currently Box has two implementations.

  • Box: a very simple implementation that runs completely in-memory.
  • FileBox: an in-memory implementation that persists data to a simple JSON file.

Support for various SQL and NoSQL databases is on the roadmap.


Box box = new Box.file('.box/test');
Stream<User> users = box.selectFrom(User)
users.listen((user) => print(;

  • Maintain

    Changelog entries help clients to follow the progress in your code.

  • The description is too short.

    Add more detail about the package, what it does and what is its target use case. Try to write at least 60 characters.

  • Fix analysis and formatting issues.

    Analysis or formatting checks reported 11 hints.

    Strong-mode analysis of lib/box.dart gave the following hint:

    line: 7 col: 1
    'dart.pkg.collection.equality' is deprecated and shouldn't be used.

    Run dartfmt to format lib/src/core.dart.

    Similar analysis of the following files failed:

    • lib/src/file.dart (hint)
  • Package is pre-v1 release.

    While there is nothing inherently wrong with versions of 0.*.*, it usually means that the author is still experimenting with the general direction API.

  • Maintain an example.

    Create a short demo in the example/ directory to show how to use this package. Common file name patterns include: main.dart, example.dart or you could also use box.dart.
