cupertino_ffi_generated 0.1.1

Pub Package Build Status

Overview #

This package enables Dart developers to use a large number Objective-C APIs. The bindings are generated with cupertino_ffi.

Most Flutter developers should not use this package. It's almost always a better idea to write a Flutter plugin than use this package. Flutter plugins are less likely to contain memory management bugs, they are automatically isolated from the UI event loop, they support all APIs, and the development experience is just a lot better.

The advantages of this package are automatic generation of APIs (no need to write message passing code) and support for non-Flutter applications such as command-line tools.

If you decide to use this package, you must follow the correct reference counting patterns documented by cupertino_ffi.

Toll-free bridged types #

Note that Foundation types (NSString, etc.) and Core Foundation types (CFString, etc.) are "toll-free" bridged types. This means that Pointer<CFString> can be used as Pointer<NSString> and vice-versa.

Core Foundation dart:ffi bindings can be found in cupertino_ffi.
