pub package

This library is the dart/flutter implementation of openapi client sdk code generation.

With this library, you can generate openapi client sdk libraries from your openapi specification right in your flutter/dart projects. (see example)

To be used together with openapi-generator-annotations


Include openapi-generator-annotations as a dependency in the dependencies section of your pubspec.yaml file :

  openapi_generator_annotations: ^1.1.4

Add openapi-generator in the dev dependencies section of your pubspec.yaml file:

  openapi_generator: ^1.1.4

Annotate a dart class with @Openapi() annotation

    AdditionalProperties(pubName: 'petstore_api', pubAuthor: 'Johnny dep'),
    inputSpecFile: 'example/openapi-spec.yaml',
    generatorName: Generator.dart,
    outputDirectory: 'api/petstore_api')
class Example extends OpenapiGeneratorConfig {}

Run command below to generate open api client sdk from spec file specified in annotation.

flutter pub run build_runner build --delete-conflicting-outputs

The api sdk will be generated in the folder specified in the annotation. See examples for more details

Known Issues

Dependency issues/conflicts

This is not an issue with this library but with flutter/dart in general. If you are having issues with dependencies, what you can do is make use of dependency overrides. This is added to the pubspec.yaml of the generated package and then the pubspec must be added to the .openapi-generator-ignore of the generated package. For example, let's assume you want to override the analyzer package for the generated source

in generatedsource/pubspec.yaml add the following

    analyzer: 1.0.0

Then in generatedsources/.openapi-generator-ignore, add the below so that the pubspec is not overwritten next time you run source gen


The above steps are usefull when you have issues with dependency conflicts, clashes. You can even use it to upgrade the library packages in the generated source.
