Testsweets Pub Version

This package is a utility and helper package to the TestSweets product. It is the package responsible for capturing your widget keys to the database which allows us to provide the auto complete functionality when you script your test cases.


To start using the package you have to add this package to your pubspec.yaml file.

  testsweets: [latest_version]


If you want to add general keys to check for when a certain widget is visible like a dialog or a button you have to add the testsweets_generator package too

  testsweets_generator: [latest_version]
  build_runner: [latest_version]


After the packages have been added we have to setup the code. TestSweets makes use of Flutter Driver to drive the test cases that we write. This means we have to enable flutter driver for the version of the app that we build that goes through automation. Flutter driver disables certain things like the on screen keyboard


void main() {
  // 1. Setup the TestSweets internal dependencies
  await setupTestSweets();

in your MaterialApp

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
     // 2. Wrap the MaterialApp with TestSweetsOverlayView 
     //    and add the projectId you get when you created a new project in Testsweets app  
    return TestSweetsOverlayView(
      projectId: 'fGuFgPNXDnu56FEoe8Rn',
      child: MaterialApp(
        title: 'Flutter Demo',
        theme: ThemeData(
          primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
        initialRoute: Routes.signUpView,
        navigatorKey: StackedService.navigatorKey,
        onGenerateRoute: StackedRouter().onGenerateRoute, 
        // 3. Finally add TestSweetsNavigatorObserver() 
        // to determine what view you are on right now
        navigatorObservers: [
