ESV API Bible for Dart

Dart CI

A future based dart package for the ESV API from Crossway which can be used to fetch ESV bible passages.

This package requires an API key to fetch bible passages. You can secure an API key by creating a new application on the ESV API website.


Getting started

  • Secure your API key at the ESV API website.
  • Import the package.
  • To fetch a passage, create an instance of the Passage class and provide the ESV API key in the constructor.
  • Call the text method to retrieve the PassageText object, call thehtml method to retrieve the PassageHtml object, call the search method to retrieve the PassageSearch object, and call the audio method to retrieve the PassageAudio object.


Basic passage text query:

import 'package:esv_bible/esv_bible.dart';

void main () async {
  const apiKey = 'your-api-key';

  final passage = Passage(apiKey);

  // PassageText
  final passageText = await passage.text('John 3:16');


John 3:16

For God So Loved the World

  [16] “For God so loved the world,(1) that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.


(1) 3:16 Or *For this is how God loved the world*
