Dart Builder

Build Status

Getting Started

The most common scenario is creating a new generated file in a transformer or build step. Dart builder provides the SourceFile class to output either a library or a part file (of another library):

var file = new SourceFile.library('bar');
file.toSource(); // Outputs "library bar;\n"

It's possible to import other libraries or files:

new SourceFile.library('bar', imports: [
  new ImportDirective(Uri.parse('package:foo/foo.dart'))

And include other dart constructs, like classes or methods:

new SourceFile.library('bar', topLevelElements: [
  new ClassRef('Foo')

NOTE: By default, SourceFile.toSource() applies the dart formatter.

Creating a class

new ClassRef('Foo', fields: [
  new FieldRef('bar')
], methods: [
  new MethodRef('baz')

See tests for more examples.

  • 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.

  • 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 dart_builder.dart.
