  • Authentication Support: Authenticate users using email/password or tokens, ensuring secure communication between your Flutter app and FeathersJS server.
  • Socket.io or REST Client: Choose between Socket.io or REST client to suit your project's needs and communication preferences.
  • Event Handling: Leverage FeathersJS's event-driven architecture to handle real-time events and updates efficiently.
  • Scalable and Reliable: Benefit from FeathersJS's scalability options and FlutterFeathersJs's robust design to build reliable real-time applications.


To start using FlutterFeathersJs, add it to your project's pubspec.yaml file:

  flutter_feathersjs: ^latest_version

Replace latest_version with the latest version of FlutterFeathersJs available on pub.dev.

Then, run the following command in your project's root directory:

flutter pub get

Getting Started

To get started with FlutterFeathersJs, follow these steps:

  1. Import the FlutterFeathersJs package into your Flutter project:

    import 'package:flutter_feathersjs/flutter_feathersjs.dart';
  2. Initialize FlutterFeathersJs as a single instance:

    const BASE_URL = "https://your-feathersjs-server.com";
    // Use tools like get_it to initialize FlutterFeathersJs globally across your app
    FlutterFeathersjs flutterFeathersjs = FlutterFeathersjs()..init(baseUrl: BASE_URL);
  3. Authenticate a user using email/password:

    var response = await flutterFeathersjs.authenticate(userName: user["email"], password: user["password"]);
  4. Re-authenticate with a token:

    var response = await flutterFeathersjs.reAuthenticate();
  5. Get the authenticated user:

    var response = await flutterFeathersjs.user();

For more detailed usage examples and API documentation, please refer to the FlutterFeathersJs documentation.

Configure and Use Socket.io or REST Client

To configure and use either the Socket.io or REST client, follow the examples below:

Socket.io Client

FlutterFeathersjs socketIOClient = FlutterFeathersjs();

IO.Socket io = IO.io(BASE_URL);


// Authenticate with Socket.io client
var response = await socketIOClient.authenticate(userName: user["email"], password: user["password"]);


// Re-authenticate with Socket.io client
var reAuthResponse = await socketIOClient.reAuthenticate();

// Create a message using Socket.io standalone client
var ioResponse = await socketIOClient.service('messages').create({"text": 'A new message'});

// Get the authenticated user
var userResponse = await socketIOClient.user();

REST Client

FlutterFeathersjs restClient = FlutterFeathersjs();

Dio dio = Dio(BaseOptions(baseUrl: BASE_URL));


// Authenticate user using REST client
var response = await restClient.authenticate(userName: user["email"], password: user["password"]);


// Re-authenticate user using REST client
var reAuthResponse = await restClient.reAuthenticate();

// Call service using REST client
var restResponse = await restClient.service('messages').create({"text": 'A new message'});

// Get the authenticated user
var user = await restClient.user();
