LocalPersist class

This will save/load multiple simple objects in UTF-8 Json format.

Save example:

var persist = LocalPersist("xyz");
List<Object> simpleObjs = ['"Hello"', '"How are you?"', [1, 2, 3], 42];
await persist.save();

Load example:

var persist = LocalPersist("xyz");
List<Object> decoded = await persist.load();


LocalPersist(Object dbName, {String dbSubDir, List<Object> subDirs})
Saves to appDocsDir/db/${dbName}.db [...]
LocalPersist.from(File file)
Saves to the given file.


dbName String
dbSubDir String
hashCode int
The hash code for this object. [...]
read-only, inherited
runtimeType Type
A representation of the runtime type of the object.
read-only, inherited
subDirs List<String>


delete() Future<bool>
Deletes the file. If the file was deleted, returns true. If the file did not exist, return false.
exists() Future<bool>
Returns true if the file exist. False, otherwise.
file() Future<File>
Gets the file.
length() Future<int>
Returns the file length. If the file doesn't exist, or exists and is empty, returns 0.
load() Future<List<Object>>
Loads the simple objects from the file. If the file doesn't exist, returns null. If the file exists and is empty, returns an empty list.
loadAsObj() Future<Map<String, dynamic>>
Same as load, but expects the file to be a Map<String, dynamic> representing a single object. Will fail if it's not a map, or if contains more than one single object. It may return null.
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
save(List<Object> simpleObjs, {bool append: false}) Future<File>
Saves the given simple objects. If append is false (the default), the file will be overwritten. If append is true, it will write to the end of the file.
toString() String
Returns a string representation of this object.


operator ==(dynamic other) bool
The equality operator. [...]
