CLI package manager and template for Flutter. Generate Modules, Pages, Widgets and BLoCs

Athena #

This CLI consists of a way to assemble your project structured by modules, pages, repositories, widgets always following the standards of good practices that has been applied by the community flutter in bigger and more structured projects. It also provides the libraries manager (libs or pubs) with it you can install multiple libraries with just one command line and even remove and update.

Usage #

athena generate module page/search

The main folder is no longer called "src" but "app"

Motivations #

We realized that the lack of a project pattern is affecting the productivity of several developers at that initial moment, so we are proposing a development pattern along with a tool that imitates NPM (NodeJS) functionality as well as template generation capabilities (similar to Scaffold ).

About the Proposed Pattern. #

We adopted the BLoC standard for business rule in a structure similar to MVC, where a page or widget has one or more BLoC to manage its business rule.

We are using the module structure and dependency injection of the package bloc_pattern. Read the bloc_pattern README to familiarize yourself with the concept of dependency injection, BLoC Provider and modules.

For services and provider we use the Repository Pattern.

In this way our folder structure is organized into local modules and a global module, as well as models, repositories and BLoC`s that can be accessed throughout the application in the shared folder.
