  • Handles getting the current version of the package
  • Returns the pub version if an update is available

Getting started

Have a dart script package published on This only works for a currently running globally activated package. Running in any other configuration will always show that the package is up to date.


import 'package:pub_update_checker/pub_update_checker.dart';

void main() async {
  final newVersion = await PubUpdateChecker.check();
  if (newVersion != null) {
    print('There is an update available: $newVersion');
  } else {
    print('No update available');


Support checking pub for script updates
