Simple Auth for Dart/Flutter

Most apps need to make API calls. Every API needs authentication, yet no developer wants to deal with authentication. Simple Auth embeds authentication into the API so you dont need to deal with it.

This is a port of Clancey.SimpleAuth for Dart and Flutter

The network/api part including the generator was based off of Chopper by Hadrien Lejard

Current Built in Providers

  • Azure Active Directory
  • Amazon
  • Dropbox
  • Facebook
  • Github
  • Google
  • Instagram
  • Linked In
  • Microsoft Live Connect
  • And of course any standard OAuth2/Basic Auth server.


var api = new simpleAuth.GoogleApi(
      "google", "client_id",clientSecret: "clientSecret",
      scopes: [
var request = new Request(HttpMethod.Get, "");
var userInfo = await api.send<UserInfo>(request);

That's it! If the user is not logged in, they will automatically be prompted. If their credentials are cached from a previous session, the api call proceeds! Expired tokens even automatically refresh.


Json objects will automatically serialize if you conform to JsonSerializable

If you use the generator and you objects have the factory factory JsonSerializable.fromJson(Map<String, dynamic> json) your api calls will automatically Serialize/Deserialize

Or you can pass your own Converter to the api and handle conversion yourself.



pub run build_runner build


flutter packages pub run build_runner build

Add the following to your pubspec.yaml

  build_runner: ^0.8.0

The Generator is not required, however it will make things magical.

@GoogleApiDeclaration("GoogleTestApi","client_id",clientSecret: "client_secret", scopes: ["TestScope", "Scope2"])
abstract class GoogleTestDefinition {
  @Get(url: "")
  Future<Response<GoogleUser>> getCurrentUserInfo();

will generate a new Api for you that is easy to use!

var api = new GoogleTestApi("google");
var user = await getCurrentUserInfo();

Auth Storage and Show Authenticator

If you are using the simple_auth_flutter plugin this is handled for you. Ignore this section unless you want to override default behavior.

If you do not implement your own Auth Storage, tokens are only stored in memory and do not persist through sessions.

You need to implement the ShowAuthenticator callback to present the login UI.
