A local database using dart:io file system components

Getting started

In the pubspec.yaml of your flutter project, add the following dependency:

dependencies:
  ...
  local_database: ^1.1.0+1

In your library add the following import:

import "package:local_database/local_database.dart";

For help getting started with Flutter, view the online documentation.

Using

This plugin comes with three main operations, get, put, and remove.

To use the database, simply instantiate it with the constructor Database database = new Database(/*File System Path to database*/);

Next, call the built in methods for database.

To put into the database, use the []= operator (note that only JSON encodable types can be used). The parameter of this operator is the path in the database to put to delimited by forward slashes ("/").

database["dir1"] = {
	"b":[1,2,3]
};
database["dir1/b/0"] = 100;

To read from the database, use the [] operator. The parameter of this operator is the path in the database to read from delimited by forward slashes ("/").

print(await database["dir1"]);
print(await database["dir1/b/0"]);

To remove from the database, use the .remove(String path) method. The parameter of this operator is the path in the database to put to delimited by forward slashes ("/").

database.remove("dir1");

The following is an example use of the package:

Database database = new Database(Directory.current.path+"/data");
Map<String,dynamic> userData;
if((await database["userData"])==null){
	String userId = "";
	Random r = new Random();
	for(int i = 0; i<8;i++){
		userId+=r.nextInt(10).toString();
	}
	database["userData"] = {
		"created": (new DateTime.now()).millisecondsSinceEpoch,
		"id":userId,
		"numLikes":0
	};
}
userData = await database["userData"];
