A dart wrapper for using the Twitter API with well documented interfaces for every endpoint.

A Dart wrapper for the Twitter API v1.1 #

pub test

This dart package provides a well documented wrapper for the Twitter v1.1 API.

Why use this package? #

To make the usage as convenient and comfortable as possible, this package provides interfaces for the various endpoints of the Twitter API. Documentation for each request is available as dart docs and each request's parameters can be changed as named parameters.

The various data structures returned by Twitter are parsed into data models in an isolate.

Example usage #

Features #

Implemented endpoints #

The implemented API endpoints are available as methods in the corresponding service. The request parameters can be set through named parameters and the response will be parsed into a data object for maximum convenience.

Find a list of implemented endpoints here.


If an API endpoint is not yet implemented, a request can be made to that endpoint by manually using the TwitterClient from the TwitterApi object.

See Making a custom request to the Twitter API for an example.

Error handling #

Requests made by the client can throw the following errors:

  • TimeoutException when a request hasn't returned a response for some time (defaults to 10s, can be changed in the TwitterClient).

  • Response when the received response does not have a 2xx status code. Most responses include additional error information that can be parsed manually from the response's body. Check out the Twitter Developer documentation of the endpoint for possible error responses (Hyperlinked in the dart doc for each endpoint).

  • Other unexpected errors in unlikely events (for example when parsing the response).


For an example of uploading media files to Twitter, see Attaching media to a Tweet.

Contribution #

I appreciate any contributions to this package. Any not yet implemented endpoints can be added similarly to the other implementations. Feel free to reach out to me to ask any questions.
