Common

TGLog

Logging mechanism levels
  • ALL, TAG, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, OFF

By default, Log Level is ALL. If wants to change, set in your app's initState().

[main.dart]
    @override
    void initState() {
        super.initState();
        TGLog.setLogLevel(TGLogLevel.DEBUG);
        ...
    }

How to Log which prints output in the console.

[Log]
    TGLog.t("TAG", "Tag log");  // Tag
    TGLog.d("Debug log");       // Debug
    TGLog.i("Info log");        // Info
    TGLog.w("Warning log");     // Warn
    TGLog.e("Error log");       // Error

[Output]
    2020-04-30 12:48:09.955850[TAG] Tag log
    2020-04-30 12:48:09.958239[DEBUG] Debug log
    2020-04-30 12:48:09.958661[INFO] Info log
    2020-04-30 12:48:09.958964[WARN] Warning log
    2020-04-30 12:48:09.959226[ERROR] Error log

Memory

TGSession

Single Session instance in memory to hold values in memory as Key-Value pair. No need to inherit or initialize anything.

Where to use:

  • Whenever data is common across layers
  • Managing data in memory without any disk-io
  • When data become invalid after app close

Between Screens: Just straight put things in one screen and use it in another one.

[Profile Screen]
    TGSession.getInstance().set("Designation","Developer");

[Home Screen]
    String designation = TGSession.getInstance().get("Designation");

Between service and view layer: Just put in service and have it in view. (Easy to put any object.)

[Service]
    TGSession.getInstance().put("Person",Person);

[Screen] 
    Person person = TGSession.getInstance().get("Person");

Thinking to manage piled up objects in session?

    TGSession.getInstance().remove("Person");

TGSharedPreference

Access local disk storage mechanism through TGSharedPreference. Its uses Shared Preferences for Android, User Defaults for iOS internally. No need to inherit or initialize anything.

    TGSharedPreferences.getInstance().set("Designation", "Developer"); // Set
    await TGSharedPreferences.getInstance().get("Designation"); // Get

Localization (i18n)

TGLocale

Supported, default and current locale holders with a locale related supporting features

TGLocalization

Localization for each locale loads values from json file

TGLocalizationsDelegate

Extended implementation of LocalizationsDelegate which Flutter uses internally

Configuration dependencies in pubspec.yaml
[pubspec.yaml]
    dependencies:
      flutter:
        sdk: flutter
      flutter_localizations:
        sdk: flutter

  assets:
    - assets/locale/
Put locale files at "assets/locale/"
[assets/locale/en_US.json]
    {
      "button.login": "Login"
    }
Setup locale in your main dart
[main.dart]
    @override
    void initState() {
      TGLocale.init(
        defaultLocale:
          const Locale("en", "US"), // en_US.json
        otherLocales: [
          const Locale("gu", "IN"), // gu_IN.json
          const Locale("hi", "IN")  // hi_IN.json
        ]
      );
    }

    MaterialApp(
    ...
      theme: TGView.theme(),
      supportedLocales: TGLocale.supportedLocales,
      locale: TGLocale.currentLocale,
      localizationsDelegates: [TGLocalizationsDelegate(), GlobalMaterialLocalizations.delegate, GlobalWidgetsLocalizations.delegate],
      localeResolutionCallback: (locale, supportedLocales) => TGLocale.localeResolutionCallback(locale, supportedLocales),
    ...
    )
How to get text from locale
[Without arguments]
    TGLocale.text(context, "button.login"); // Having "button.login": "Login"

[With arguments]
    TGLocale.text(context, "message.hello", args: ["Amit Patel"]); // Having "message.hello": "Welcome {0} to our team!"
How to change locale
[set locale]
    setLocale("en_US");
    ...
    setLocale(String localeCode) {
      setState(() {
        TGLocale.currentLocale = TGLocale.findLocaleByCode(localeCode );
      });
    }
    // -- OR -- //
    setLocale(Locale locale) {
      setState(() {
        TGLocale.currentLocale = locale;
      });
    }
Helper methods just in case needed anywhere
[Find locale by code]
    Locale locale = TGLocale.findLocaleByCode("en_US");

[Generate code by locale]
    Locale locale = Locale("en", "US");
    String localeCode = TGLocale.generateCode(locale); // returns "en_US"

Util

TGDateUtil

Format

[Default Pattern]
    TGDateUtil.formatDate(date); //"2020-05-16"
    TGDateUtil.formatDateTime(dateTime); //"2020-05-16 12:47:52"

[Custom Pattern]
    TGDateUtil.formatDate(date, datePattern: "dd/MM/yyyy"); //"16/05/2020"
    TGDateUtil.formatDateTime(dateTime, dateTimePattern: "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss"); //"16/05/2020 12:47:52"

Parse

[Default Pattern]
    DateTime date = TGDateUtil.parseDate("2020-05-16");
    DateTime dateTime = TGDateUtil.parseDateTime("2020-05-16 12:47:52");

[Custom Pattern]
    DateTime date = TGDateUtil.parseDate("16/05/2020", datePattern: "dd/MM/yyyy");
    DateTime dateTime = TGDateUtil.parseDateTime("16/05/2020T12:47:52", dateTimePattern: "dd/MM/yyyyTHH:mm:ss");

TGNetUtil

Check internet availability

    if(await TGNetUtil.isInternetAvailable()) {
        ...
    }

TGFileUtil

Read File as String

    String content = await TGFileUtil.readFileAsString("assets/files/company.txt");

TGValidate

Validators like email, alphabets, numeric, alphanumeric.

[Email]
    TGValidate.email("valid@email.com")

[Alphabets]
    TGValidate.alphabets("AbcPqrXyz");

[Numeric]
    TGValidate.numeric("1234567890");

[Alphanumeric]
    TGValidate.alphanumeric("abc123");

Service

TGService

HTTP wrapper implementation having Request and Response as objects. JSon is Api standard so converting json string response into provided response object. In case of error, also converting json error string response into provided error object.

Initialize

    await TGService.init(
      baseUrl: "https://api.company.com/v1",
      headers: defaultHeaders(),
      applyMock: true,
      mockMappingsFile: "assets/mocks/_mappings.json",
      badCertificateCallbackEnabled: false
    );

    Map<String, String> defaultHeaders() {
      Map<String, String> headers = {};
      headers['Content-Type'] = 'application/json';
      return headers;
    }

HTTP Request (Example: Login)

    TGPostRequest request = LoginRequest(
      email: _email,
      password: _password
    );

    new TGService<LoginResponse, ServiceError>(() => new LoginResponse(), () => new ServiceError())
      .post(
        request: request,
        onSuccess: (response) => _onSuccess(response),
        onError: (error) => _onError(error)
    );

Request, Response & Error (Example: Login)

Request extends type of request TGGetRequest, TGPostRequest, TGPutRequest, TGDeleteRequest
[login-request.dart]
    class LoginRequest extends TGPostRequest {
      String email;
      String password;
    
      LoginRequest({this.email, this.password});
    
      Map<String, dynamic> toJson() => {
        'email': email,
        'password': password,
      };
    
      @override
      String getUri() {
        return "/login";
      }
    
      String body() {
        return json.encode(toJson());
      }
    }
Response extends standard TGResponse
[login-response.dart]
    class LoginResponse extends TGResponse {
      String userId;
      String accessToken;
      String refreshToken;
      String email;
      String name;
    
      LoginResponse();
    
      LoginResponse.fromJson(dynamic json) {
        fromJson(json);
      }
    
      @override
      fromJson(dynamic json) {
        userId = json['userId'];
        accessToken = json['accessToken'];
        refreshToken = json['refreshToken'];
        name = json['name'];
        email = json['email'];
      }
    }
Error represents common service error attributes which can be used common accross all the services which extends TGError
[service-error.dart]
    class ServiceError extends TGError {
      int timestamp;
      int errorCode;
      String message;
      List details;
    
      ServiceError({
        this.timestamp,
        this.errorCode,
        this.message,
        this.details,
      });
    
      @override
      ServiceError fromJson(dynamic json) {
        return ServiceError(
          timestamp: json['timestamp'],
          errorCode: json['errorCode'],
          message: json['message'],
          details: json['details'],
        );
      }
    }

Mock Service (Example: Login)

Mapping file holds all the success and error files for each combination of request uri and method. Framework decides based on httpStatus code weather to take success or error file.

One can simply bypass the entry by making applyMock as false which triggers live service call instead of relying on mock.

[assets/mocks/_mappings.json]
    [
      {
        "uri": "/login",
        "method": "POST",
        "applyMock": true,
        "httpStatus": 200,
        "successFile": "assets/mocks/login_success.json",
        "errorFile": "assets/mocks/login_error.json"
      }
    ]

[assets/mocks/login_success.json]
    {
      "userId": "Kmh76tYuH92BvkYt498Gv6FcL0Ut",
      "accessToken": "Mh9TgfE26Df9vp76Hjk4eDf67GvdS",
      "refreshToken": "K8gHr4I8tHklM9Hkt6EfDoPkn84dA",
      "email": "vishal@techgrains.com",
      "name": "Vishal Patel"
    }

[assets/mocks/login_error.json]
    {
      "timestamp": 1234567890,
      "errorCode": 2003,
      "message": "Invalid password",
      "details": [
        "Password must be 6 characters long"
      ],
    }
