clock 1.0.0

This package provides a Clock class which encapsulates the notion of the "current time" and provides easy access to points relative to the current time. Different Clocks can have a different notion of the current time, and the default top-level clock's notion can be swapped out to reliably test timing-dependent code.

For example, you can use clock in your libraries like this:

// run_with_timing.dart
import 'package:clock/clock.dart';

/// Runs [callback] and prints how long it took.
T runWithTiming<T>(T callback()) {
  var stopwatch = clock.stopwatch()..start();
  var result = callback();
  print("It took ${stopwatch.elapsed}!");
  return result;

...and then test your code using the fake_async package, which automatically overrides the current clock:

// run_with_timing_test.dart
import 'run_with_timing.dart';

import 'package:fake_async/fake_async.dart';
import 'package:test/test.dart';

void main() {
  test("runWithTiming() prints the elapsed time", () {
    new FakeAsync().run((async) {
      expect(() {
        runWithTiming(() {
          async.elapse(new Duration(seconds: 10));
      }, prints("It took 0:00:10.000000!"));

1.0.0 #

This release contains the Clock class that was defined in quiver. It's backwards-compatible with the quiver version, and mostly backwards-compatible with the old version of the clock package.

New Features #

  • A top-level clock field has been added that provides a default Clock implementation. It can be controlled by the withClock() function. It should generally be used in preference to manual dependency-injection, since it will work with the fake_async package.

  • A Clock.stopwatch() method has been added that creates a Stopwatch that uses the clock as its source of time.

Changes Relative to clock 0.1

  • The top-level new getter and getStopwatch() methods are deprecated. and clock.stopwatch() should be used instead.

  • Clock.getStopwatch() is deprecated. Clock.stopwatch() should be used instead.

  • The isFinal argument to withClock() is deprecated.

  • new Clock() now takes an optional positional argument that returns the current time as a DateTime instead of its old arguments.

  • is now a method rather than a getter.
