Build Status - Coverage Status - Pub

A generic platform abstraction for Dart.

Like dart:io, package:platform supplies a rich, Dart-idiomatic API for accessing platform-specific information.

package:platform provides a lightweight wrapper around the static Platform properties that exist in dart:io. However, it uses instance properties rather than static properties, making it possible to mock out in tests.


  • Declare compatibility with Dart 2 stable
  • Update dependency on package:test to 1.0


  • Relax sdk upper bound constraint to '<2.0.0' to allow 'edge' dart sdk use.


  • Bumped maximum Dart SDK version to 2.0.0-dev.infinity


  • Added localeName
  • Bumped minimum Dart SDK version to 1.24.0-dev.0.0


  • Added stdinSupportsAnsi and stdinSupportsAnsi
  • Removed ansiSupported


  • Updated LocalPlatform to use new API for ansi color support queries
  • Bumped minimum Dart SDK version to 1.23.0-dev.10.0


  • Added ansiSupported
  • Bumped minimum Dart SDK version to 1.23.0-dev.9.0


  • Minor doc updates


  • Added const constructors for Platform and LocalPlatform
