pubspec_yaml Build Status codecov pubspec_lock version

Dart library to access and manipulate content of pubpec.yaml files

Class PubspecYaml

PubspecYaml is a data type representing data stored in pubspec.yaml files.

The following fields are supported:

  • Package name
  • Package version
  • Package description
  • Package author/authors
  • Package homepage, repository, and issue tracker
  • Package documentation
  • Package server specification
  • Dependency specifications: regular, dev, and overrides
  • SDK constraints
  • Command-line executables provided by the package

Other fields are accessible via PubspecYaml.customFields as a JSON structure (Map<String, dynamic>).

YAML Import / Export

PubspecYaml provides two methods to serialize pubspec.yaml content:

  • The factory method PubspecYaml.loadFromYamlString() creates an object from a string with pubspec.yaml content
  • PubspecYaml.toYamlString() produces pubspec.yaml content that can be written to a file

Data Manipulation

PubspecYaml uses functional_data extensions to enable equality operations and lenses (https://pub.dev/packages/functional_data).

Usage

To use pubspec_yaml, add the following dependency to pubspec.yaml:

dependencies:
  pubspec_yaml: ^1.0.0

Example

The following Dart script checks whether production dependencies have overrides:

import 'dart:io';

import 'package:pubspec_yaml/pubspec_yaml.dart';

// ignore_for_file: avoid_print

void main() {
  final pubspecYamlContent = File('pubspec.yaml').readAsStringSync();
  final pubspecYaml = PubspecYaml.loadFromYamlString(pubspecYamlContent);

  final productionOverrides = pubspecYaml.dependencyOverrides.where(
    (override) => pubspecYaml.dependencies.any((
      productionDependency,
    ) =>
        productionDependency.package() == override.package()),
  );

  if (productionOverrides.isEmpty) {
    print('SUCCESS: No overrides of production dependencies detected');
  } else {
    print('WARNING: Overrides of production dependencies detected:');
    productionOverrides.forEach(print);
  }
}
