Resources: #

On this page you can find some of the extensions. Take a look at the docs to see all of them.

Getting started #

Add the following to your pubspec.yaml:

dependencies:
  dartf: any

After you import the library, you can use the extensions.

import 'package:dartf/dartf.dart';

final slice = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].slice(1, -2); // [2, 3, 4]

Iterable #

.slice() #

Returns elements at indices between start (inclusive) and end (inclusive).

final list = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
final last = list.slice(-1); // [5]
final lastHalf = list.slice(3); // [3, 4, 5]
final allButFirstAndLast = list.slice(1, -2); // [1, 2, 3, 4]

.sortedBy() & .thenBy() #

Sort lists by multiple properties.

final dogs = [
  Dog(name: "Tom", age: 3),
  Dog(name: "Charlie", age: 7),
  Dog(name: "Bark", age: 1),
  Dog(name: "Cookie", age: 4),
  Dog(name: "Charlie", age: 2),
];

final sorted = dogs
    .sortedBy((dog) => dog.name)
    .thenByDescending((dog) => dog.age);
// Bark, Cookie, Charlie (7), Charlie (2), Tom

.distinctBy() #

Get distinct elements from a list.

final list = ['this', 'is', 'a', 'test'];
final distinctByLength = list.distinctBy((it) => it.length); // ['this', 'is', 'a']

.flatten() #

Get a new lazy Iterable of all elements from all collections in a collection.

final nestedList = [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]];
final flattened = nestedList.flatten(); // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

.chunkWhile() & .splitWhen() #

Chunk entries as long as two elements match a predicate:

final list = [1, 2, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21];
final increasingSubSequences = list.chunkWhile((a, b) => a + 1 == b);

// increasingSubSequences = [[1, 2], [4], [9, 10, 11, 12], [15, 16], [19, 20, 21]]

splitWhen is the opposite of chunkWhile that starts a new chunk every time the predicate didn't match.

Time utils #

dartf exports @jogboms great ⏰ time.dart package so you can do the following:

int secondsInADay = 1.days.inSeconds;

Duration totalTime = [12.5.seconds, 101.milliseconds, 2.5.minutes].sum();

DateTime oneWeekLater = DateTime.now() + 1.week;

Check out ⏰ time.dart for more information and examples.

num #

.coerceIn() #

Ensures that this value lies in the specified range.

final numberInRange = 123.coerceIn(0, 1000); // 123
final numberOutOfRange = -123.coerceIn(0, 1000); // 0

.toBytes() #

Converts this value to binary form.

.toChar() #

Converts this value to character

final character = 97.toChar(); // a

range #

rangeTo #

Creates a range between two ints (upwards, downwards and with custom steps)

// upwards with default step size 1
for (final i in 1.rangeTo(5)) {
  print(i); // 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
}
// downwards with custom step
for (final i in 10.rangeTo(2).step(2)) {
  print(i); // 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
}

Function #

.partial(), .partial2() ... #

Applies some of the required arguments to a function and returns a function which takes the remaining arguments.

void greet(String firstName, String lastName) {
  print('Hi $firstName $lastName!');
}

final greetStark = greet.partial('Stark');
greetStark('Sansa'); // Hi Sansa Stark!
greetStark('Tony'); // Hi Tony Stark!

File #

.name #

Get the name and extension of a file.

final file = File('some/path/testFile.dart');
print(file.name); // testFile.dart
print(file.nameWithoutExtension); // testFile

.appendText() #

Append text to a file.

await File('someFile.json').appendText('{test: true}');

.isWithin() #

Checks if a file is inside a directory.

final dir = Directory('some/path');
File('some/path/file.dart').isWithin(dir); // true

Directory #

.file(String) #

References a file within a Directory

Directory androidDir = Directory('flutter-app/android');
File manifestFile = androidDir.file("app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml");

References a directory within a Directory

.directory(String) #

Directory androidDir = Directory('flutter-app/android');
Directory mainSrc = androidDir.directory("app/src/main");

.contains(FileSystemEntity entity, {bool recursive = false}) #

Checks if a Directory contains a FileSystemEntity. This can be a File or a Directory.

Use the recursive argument to include the subdirectories.

final File someFile = File('someFile.txt');
final Directory someDir = Directory('some/dir');

final Directory parentDir = Directory('parent/dir');

parentDir.contains(someFile);
parentDir.contains(someDir);
parentDir.contains(someFile, recursive: true);
parentDir.contains(someDir, recursive: true);

This is the async method, which returns a Future<bool>.

.containsSync(FileSystemEntity entity, {bool recursive = false}) #

Same as .contains(FileSystemEntity entity, {bool recursive = false}) but synchronous. Returns a bool.
