Pub Package

Provides Dart Build System builder for generating List<Object> _autoequalProps private extensions for classes annotated with autoequal.

Usage

In your pubspec.yaml file:

  • Add to dependencies section autoequal: ^0.1.2
  • Add to dev_dependencies section autoequal_gen: ^0.1.2
  • Add to dev_dependencies section build_runner: ^1.10.4
  • Set environment to at least Dart 2.9.0 version like so: ">=2.9.0 <3.0.0"

Your pubspec.yaml should look like so:

name: project_name
description: project description
version: 1.0.0

environment:
  sdk: ">=2.9.0 <3.0.0"

dependencies:
  ...
  autoequal: ^0.1.2
  
dev_dependencies:
  ...
  build_runner: ^1.10.4
  autoequal_gen: ^0.1.2

Annotate your class with @autoequal annotation:

import 'package:autoequal/autoequal.dart';
import 'package:equatable/equatable.dart';

part 'some_class.g.dart';

@autoequal
class SomeClass extends Equatable {
  final String id;

  SomeClass({this.id, this.random});

  @override
  List<Object> get props => _autoequalProps; //_autoequalProps will be generated
}

Make sure that you set the part file as in the example above part 'your_file_name.g.dart';.

Launch code generation:

flutter pub run build_runner build

The extension will be generated:

// GENERATED CODE - DO NOT MODIFY BY HAND

part of 'some_class.dart';

// **************************************************************************
// AutoequalGenerator
// **************************************************************************

extension _$SomeClassAutoequal on SomeClass {
  List<Object> get _autoequalProps => [id];
}

Additional features

Autoequal mixin

The @autoequalMixin or @Autoequal(mixin: true) will additionally generate a mixin class.

mixin _$SomeClassAutoequalMixin on Equatable {
  @override
  List<Object> get props => _$SomeClassAutoequal(this)._autoequalProps;
}

To use it just add it to your class:

@autoequalMixin
class SomeClass extends Equatable with _$SomeClassAutoequalMixin {
  final String id;

  SomeClass({this.id});
}

Ignore field

The autoequal will exclude any field annotated with @ignoreAutoequal.

@ignoreAutoequal
final int random;
