  • Shared preference with RxDart Stream observation.
  • Reactive shared preferences for Flutter.
  • Reactive stream wrapper around SharedPreferences.
  • This package provides reactive shared preferences interaction with very little code. It is designed specifically to be used with Flutter and Dart.

More detail about return Observable

  • Observable will emit the initial value as its first next event (Emit value as soon as possible after is listen to) (emit null when value is not set)
  • It will automatic emit value when value associated with key was changed successfully (emit null when value associated with key was removed or set to null)
  • When read value is not valid type (wrong type):
    • Will emit error if value is present (not null)
    • Emit null when value is absent (value is not set, value is null) (because null can be cast to any type).
  • Can emit two consecutive data events that are equal. You should use Rx operator like distinct (More commonly known as distinctUntilChanged in other Rx implementations) to create an Observable where data events are skipped if they are equal to the previous data event.

Getting Started

In your flutter project, add the dependency to your pubspec.yaml

dependencies:
  ...
  rx_shared_preference: <latest_version>

Usage

Import rx_shared_preference and shared_preferences

import 'package:rx_shared_preference/rx_shared_preference.dart';
import 'package:shared_preferences/shared_preferences.dart';

Wrap your SharedPreferences in a RxSharedPreferences.

final rxSharedPreferences = RxSharedPreferences(
  await SharedPreferences.getInstance()
);

or not need keyword await before SharedPreferences.getInstance()

final rxSharedPreferences = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance()
);

You can add logger optional parameter to RxSharedPreferences constructor. Logger will log messages about operations (such as read, write) and observable values

final rxSharedPreferences = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance(),
  (message) => print('[RX_SHARED_PREF] :: $message'),
);

or simply pass print function to RxSharedPreferences constructor

final rxSharedPreferences = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance(),
  print,
);

And then, just listen Observable, transform Observable through operators such as (map, flatMap, etc...). If you need listen to this Observable many times, you can use broadcast operators such as share, shareValue, publish, publishValue, ...

rxSharedPreferences.getStringListObservable('KEY').listen(print);

rxSharedPreferences.getStringListObservable('KEY').share();
rxSharedPreferences.getStringListObservable('KEY').shareValue();

rxSharedPreferences.getIntObservable('KEY')
  .map((i) => /*Do something cool*/)
  ...
  ...

RxSharedPreferences is like to SharedPreferences, it provides read write functions: getBool, getDouble, getInt, ..., setBool, setDouble, setInt, etc...
