A package for getting commonly used locations for storage on Windows, Mac, and Linux, such as the app data directories.
Dart Package for getting commonly used locations for storage on Windows, Mac, and Linux, such as the app data directories.
Inspired by path_provider (this does the same, except for Dart CLI apps or libs).
Originally written for a locally cached repository (think .m2 cache for Java). Tested and working on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Flutter is not supported.
How to Install #
Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:
dependencies: dart_app_data: ^1.0.1
With AppData #
import 'package:dart_app_data/dart_app_data.dart'; ... // Creates a folder if it does not already exist (only call once). final myData = AppData.findOrCreate('.my_app'); // Get the location of the folder as a String print(myData.path); // Outputs: C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming\.my_app // Get the location of the folder directly as a directory print(myData.directory); // Get the name of the cache print(myData.name); // Outputs: .my_app // ... Do whatever you want with the folder now. // Want to delete it? // myData.delete();
Without AppData #
import 'package:dart_app_data/src/locator.dart'; ... // No need for the AppData abstraction? Use the Locator helper. print(Locator.getPlatformSpecificCachePath()); // Outputs: C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming
- Windows: C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming
- macOS: /MyUsername/Library/Application Support
- Linux: /MyUsername/user/
