dcli: ^1.31.2 copied to clipboard

Dart console SDK - write console (cli) apps/scripts using dart.

1.31.2 #

  • Fixed a bug in the Settings.setVerbose(true) method. Each time setVerbose was called it added an additional logger resulting in multiple log lines per logging event.
  • Fixed a bug in Settings.setVerbose(false) - it was cancelling all loggers even ones we hadn't created.

1.31.1 #

  • Fixed links to doco in readme

1.31.0 #

  • upgraded to pubspec 2.2.0 to get the latest bug fixes.
  • excluded tests that require sudo.

  • updated the template pubspec.yaml so the sdk contstraint matches dcli's.

1.30.3 #

  • updated win32 version as causing compatibitlity problems on older sdks.
  • improved the project create from template logic so that we update the dcli version dependency to match the version of dcli the user is running.
  • experiemental work on delete_tree. Untested!
  • removed redundant argument.
  • corrected messages in move_tree that used the word copy instenad of move. Truely a 'copy' paste bug.
  • renamed Settings.appname to Settings.dcliAppName
  • improved the doco for replace.
  • Added a better error message for the copy command if the from path is a directory.

1.30.2 #

1.30.0 #

  • Correctly set the base sdk to 2.16
  • restored the 2.16 throwsWithStackTrace in wait_for_ex now we have fixed the 2.12 based release.
  • fixed the named_lock test by using the core withTempDir which is actually async.

1.20.0 #

  • Cleaned up the resource_registry so the generated file matches the dart source formatter. This stops git seeing a change every time we release and run pack.
  • restored the 2.16 throwsWithStackTrace in wait_for_ex now we have fixed the 2.12 based release.
  • fixed the named_lock test by using the core withTempDir which is actually async.

1.18.1 #

1.18.0 #

  • Bump minDartSdk constraint to 2.16
  • Added platforms spec as pub.dev has it wrong.

  • improved the doco formatting for createTempDir.

1.17.3 #

  • updated the dcli_crore dependency

  • added extended description option for when user gets details command help.
  • moved from di_zone2 to scope.
  • Removed Env.mock as we are now using Scopes.

  • experiements in incremental compilation. Unfortunately you can only incrementally compile to a dill.
  • BREAKING: chmod now calls the posix chmod if posix is available. Change the order of the chmod args and made permission a named argument to match chown args.
  • renamed the resources directory to resource and the templates directory to template in keeping with the dart directory naming conventions.

1.14.1 #

Fixed dependency issue with csv library.

1.14.0 #

  • Made the 'is' methods synchronous based on lint advice.
  • Fixed for the tail command deadlocking on the stream.
  • improved isGloballyActivated by checking the global list rather than just relying on the presence of the exe which could have been deleted but the package is still considered active.

  • Merge pull request #179 from AdnanAlshami/master

1.13.6 #

  • Added firstLine to FindProgress for backward compatiblity with the original Progress.

1.13.5 #

  • Move posix specific methods into separate barrel file posix.dart so that users are concious of the fact they are using a posix specific method.

1.13.4 #

  • Fixed: #178 when creating a project with a script that contains a path we were doubling up the path name.
  • documented each of the PackedResource fields.
  • re-ordered the fields in the generated packed resource libraries so that the checksum and the resourcepath are at the top and therefor easier to find.

1.13.3 #

  • Fix: #172 Changed the doco on warmup to indicate that it does a pub get. For the moment I've left the warmup command intact but will consider removing it.
  • Fix: #178 when creating a script which include a directory in the path. If the path didn't exist an exception would be thrown. We now test if the dir exists and print an appropriate error.
  • Added a file checksum and original path to the PackedResource. The checksum allows the user to easily determine of the unpacked resource needs to be updated. Added the name of the original resource to the packed resource to make it easy to identify the origin of the packed resource.
  • Fixed the signature on the DigestHelper.hexEncode method as we do not need to pass a byte list as the Digets already has it.
  • reduced generated line to < 80 chars.

1.13.2 #

  • FIX: #173 move wasn't passing the overwrite flag down.

1.13.1 #

  • Fixes: 171 CastError running dcli doctor

1.13.0 #

Dispite the version no. this is a major update to dcli.

Whilst there are few changes to the dcli api this is the first version that relies on dcli_core.

DCli Core is a new library that now holds asynchronous version of many of the functions exposed by DCli as synchrouns functions.

The original premise behind dcli was that the api should be fully synchronous to avoid developers having to deal with futures and awaits which in CLI apps offered little advantage and lots of pain.

A number of user however have asked for async version of some of the functions we expose hence the creation of DCli Core.

DCli Core is fully async and does not use waitFor. This means that it can be used in any dart project that supports dart:io.

This means that you can now use DCli Core in a flutter app.

As flutter web doesn't support dart:io you can't use DCli core in a flutter web app.

This version of DCli includes a very early version of DCli core so some caution is advised.

As result of work done to create DCli Core we have achived significant performance improvements with the find function which previously was unable to scan a full disk without running out of ram. This is no longer an issue.

  • Added in shell detection for a fake docker shell to handle when we are running as proc 1 in docker and no shell actually exists. The DockerShell provides sensible defaults.
  • Moved to using the stacktrace_impl package.
  • FIXED: the unknownShell was not calling the action on withPrivileges. It can do anything about the priviliges but there is no reason to not call the action. This issue came up within docker that calls the exe without a shell.
  • Added support for an escape character '^' in command lines as well as bringing the treament of quotes in line with how bash treats quotes that appear in a word. --name="fred" is now parsed as a single word rather than three separate words.
  • Documented TailProgress methods.
  • Documented FetchProgress members.
  • experiment changing which to use a Stream rather than a callback.
  • Given we require at least one option to be passed, change the menu function to return the first option (when no terminal attached) and no defaultOption provided rather than throwing an ArgumentError as in most cases the first option is probably the most common one to be selected.
  • exposed win32.dart from windows.dart
  • Change to directly altering the Windows registry for the dart file association for dcli rather than using ftype and assoc.
  • Added regKeyExists and regKeyCreate to registry.dart.
  • Added the ability for the fetch command to 'post' data using a FetchData object to descrirbe the data to be sent.
  • Fixed bug where a no. of registry methods were failing to pass down the accessRights. Added 'defaultRegistryKey' to facilitate adding values to the (Default) valueName. Added method to set a value using REG_NONE.
  • Documented the fetch headers.
  • Added support for sending headers to fetch.

1.12.4 #

  • FIXED: stopped indentifyShell looping endlessly on docker when no shell is in the process tree.

1.12.3 #

  • Fixed a bug when running under docker with no shell. loggedInUser was returning null. We now return 'root'. Hopefull this doesn't cause problems in other scenarios. If it does I think we can just add more shell types for specific scenarios.

1.12.2 #

  • upgraded posix 2.2.1 for a bug fix.
  • Added option to withPriviliged to allow it to be called even when we aren't priviliged. This is to allow apps that can run with and without priviliges to run without complicated code paths.
  • Added progress messages to pack command.

1.12.1 #

  • upgaded to posix 2.2.0
  • started using the posix getppid to get the parent pid so we less reliant on the 'ps' command being installed.

1.12.0 #

  • Added the ability for dcli to 'pack' resource files into an application.
  • Fixed waitForEx exception handling. It wasn't letting non DCliExceptions through.
  • Fixed a bug where find was following symlinks.

1.11.0 #

  • Fixed the command line parsing to retrain nested quotes. We had stripped out all quotes but it turns out that a bash retains nested quotes so we need to as well.
  • Fixed a bug in the copy command when copying symlinks. It was copying the symlink when it should have been copying the file that the symlink pointed to. This is in keeping with the gnu 'cp' command.
  • Fetch - added specific tests for host not found under linux as the error is different to windows.
  • Added method to DartScript inUnitTest wich can be used to detect if a dart script is being run within a unit test.
  • Added logic to StackTraceImpl to pick up the source type of the frame (package or file based). This help fixed the isUnitTest method and allows us to get the correct script path when running in a unit test.
  • Fixed critical test hook paths.
  • Added default exclusion of sudo test for critical_test.
  • Moved the logic for whether the test was compiled from the setup method into the isPrivilged test as it was shutting down the entire testsuite even when the sudo tests where excluded.

1.10.0 #

  • Implemented support for escaping in command lines as well as support for command words that contain quotes. Previously we separated out the quoted section into a separate word which doesn't match what bash does. --arg="quote me" is no treated as a single word.
  • Fixed file_sync unit test to work on windows. the \r\n on windows caused a different file size to be returned.
  • added asList method to stack_list.

1.9.6 #

  • Fetch now throws a FetchException if a HTTP error occurs. Previously it would complete normally. Even if an error occurs we try to download the body as many http errors also provide a body.
  • Fixed a bug in isLink as it was resolving the link and checking if the resolved path was a symlink rather than the passed path.
  • Fixed a bug where the copy command would fail if we tried to copy a symlink. We now check for a symlink and create a new symlink rather than trying to copy it.
  • Added unit tests for the collection of symlink functions.
  • Fixed problems with copying and deleting symlinks. Logic was manipulating the target file rather than the actual symlink.
  • Fixes to a number of unit test
  • Improved Format.limitString and added unit tests.
  • Corrected documentation for the run method.
  • Added additional unit tests for the isXXX collection of functions.
  • Improved formating of comments that include a 'See:' section.
  • removed pedantic as we have moved to lints.
  • removed the need for exceptions derived from DCliExceptions to overload copyFrom. waitForEx can now repair the stacktrace without using copyFrom.

1.9.4 #

  • Added additional verbose statements to findPrimaryVersion.
  • exposed the verbose function so dcli users can use the same logging mechanism as dcli.

1.9.3 #

  • fixed a bug in DartScript().self.scriptName. ScriptName which wasn't being initialised.

1.9.2 #

  • Add method ProcessHelper().getProcessesByName

1.9.1 #

1.8.22 #

  • made tests OS specific.
  • Fixed duplication of windows paths during install issue.
  • test script for path manipulation.
  • move pub_cache back to util.
  • restored the correct pathSeparator method and renamed it pathDelimiter to make it clearer what its purpose is.

1.8.21 #

  • Work on improving the windows installer.

  • Exposed the Env class as it has a number of useful PATH related methods.

  • Windows Installer now checks that developer mode is enabled so we can use symlinks.

  • Added resets between pub-cache tests. Looks like join recognizes both slashes so no need to use platform specific slash.

  • marked reset method in a number of classes as only visible for unit testing. renamed pubcache unitTestrest to reset for consitency.

  • Looks like c:\ is prefixed also need to reset pubcache between tests.

  • removed pathSeparator as it duplicated dart Platform functionality.

  • Fixes for bugs with locating pub cache on windows and added unit tests.

  • Added addition paths to the windows PATH.

  • Added pathPutIfAbsent. Also renamed all the path functions to begin with 'path'.

  • Added pubcache and .dcli/bin to path.

  • Fixed a bug in the format of setx.

  • Added dcli path and now launches bash shell to do dev in. Not certain its what we need.

  • incomplete docker script to do local dev.

  • Added logic to delete the install dir if it already exists.

  • Added a check for install preconditions. If they are not met the installer will exit. For powershell we now check that developer mode is enabled as we require this for symlinks. We nolonger allow an install from the old command shell.

  • Added methods to manipulate the path.

  • Removed a sperious print statement.

Fixed a bug in the default script which had an extra /

1.8.19 #

1.8.13-dev.1 #

  • [ENH] Work on a docker based cli for dcli.
  • [FIX] unknown shell no returns false for priviliged user to avoid npe.
  • [Fix] for macos which by default only supports
  • [ENH] added logic to fix permission when dcli rans as root.
  • [FIX] bug when determing pub-cache path if environment variable set.
  • [ENH] added new methods loggedInUser and isPrivilegedUser.
  • [ENH] released dcli_install as a binary so people could easily install dcli.

1.8.12 #

  • [ENH] created a command to upgrade dcli.
  • [DOC] cleaned up the public interface by making a number a items private.
  • [IMP] changed color for command messages for consistency.
  • [IMP] removed clean all as when you first install as there should be no projects. dcli upgrade on the other hand does need to do a clean all.
  • [IMP] cleaned up invalid argument processing.
  • [FIX] Fixed a bug which allowed install to be run from sudo.

1.8.11 #

  • [enh] adding validation to ask.
  • [imp] moved the cleanall after the install has completed so that compile errors don't stop the install completeing.
  • [bug] Fix for Service.getIsolateID returning null in compiled script. The hashcode should be a stable substitute. The question is why is getIsolateID only failing in some compiled scripts.

1.8.10 #

Fixed bug in glob expansion where a relative path with ../ was mistaken for a hidden path.

1.8.9 #

second go at fixing the compile install bug.

  • [ENH] Exposed NamedLock as part of the official dcli api.
    • Tidied up the NamedLock documentation and removed internal implementation from the api.
  • [ENH] changed how we handle quoted arguments when the startWithArgs method is called. We no longer strip quotes from passed arguments because if you pass quotes you probably really need them to be there. This differs from passing cmdLine where we need to strip the quotes as bash does.
  • [ENH] added logic to suppress color codes if terminal doesn't support them.
  • [ENH] added support for backspace when entering hidden text for ask.
  • [CLEANUP] dog fooding the internals of VirtualProject.

1.8.4 #

  • This release is primarily about getting dcli to work correctly under windows.

  • There is still a no. of significant issues that need to be resolve for windows.

  • This release however has sufficient improvements for general dcli users that I thought it was time for a release.

  • The core windows issues is that dart2native doesn't support symlinks so compilation doesn't work.

  • This is affecting unit tests so its a little hard to evaluate just how stable the windows release.

  • Having said that it does look like dcli is broadly working under windows.

  • I will be attempting to resolve these issues over the next week or so.

  • This release also fixes an issue that Mac uses had that stopped them compiling dcli.

  • It appears that the logger package has a problem (Invalid cid) that stopped compilation on Mac, windows and Rasp Pi. I've removed this package and now compilation seems to work fine.

1.8.3 #

  • [fix] Compile fixes when project has local pubspec.yaml.
  • [enh] Added experimental parser to string_process which allows reading and parsing a number of common file formats.
  • [enh] Added glob expansion when running command lines.
  • [enh] New NamedLock class provides an inter isoloate and inter process locking mechanism.
  • [enh] Improvements to documentation.
  • [enh] New method on FileSync to create a temp file.
  • [enh] Version of start which takes a command and an arg array to provide a simplified path
  • when complex escaping is involved.
  • [fix] For unit test so that all test can now complete in a single run.
  • [fix] Start was not passing the Progress down.
  • [fix] Bug in tab completion when expanding scripts.
  • [fix] Two compiler bugs. It was trying to compile scripts in subdirectories when we are only meant to compile scripts in the current directory. Fixed bug where local pubspec.yaml was being ignored.

1.8.3 #

Added start method which takes an arg array to avoid escaping lots of quotes.

1.8.0 #

  • upgraded to dart 2.14

There are a number of minor breaking changes would should not affect most users.

  • Added new byte level read/write methods to FileSync

  • Changed Remote to have a factory Constructor and each method from a static to an instance method.

  • Changed Recase to have a factory Constructor and each method from a static to an instance method.

  • Changed EnumHelper to have a factory Constructor and each method from a static to an instance method.

  • Changed StdLog to have a factory Constructor and each method from a static to an instance method.*

  • Change the Format methods from static to instance and added a factory constructor to Format.

  • Added extension to Platform Platform.eol

  • Replaced \n with Platform().eol so that the line terminators for append and write are now platform specific. Fixes:

  • ask(hidden: true) wasn't working on windows as windows generates 13 rather than 10 when the enter key is used. Also we have to set the lineMode to true before echoMode on windows.

  • Spelling of milliseconds as millseconds on the sleep command thanks to whoizit

1.7.3 #

  • Fixed the replace test to work correctly with windows line delimiters.
  • corrected version no.
  • Added method isProcessRunning to the ProcessHelper class.
  • Fixed typo in doco - thanks to @whoizit .
  • Fixed a bug in DartSdk.globalActivate - it was ignoring the passed package and always installing dcli :)

1.7.1 #

  • Added verbose statement to DartScript.

1.7.0 #

  • Changed findPrimaryVersion to run null if package doesn't exist in pub-cache. This makes error handling easier than when an exception was being throw. We previously through a StateError and this wasn't really an error. minor doco changes.
  • Added working directory to runexception to aid the user in diagnosing the cause of the run failure.

1.6.3 #

  • improved the messaging when dcli isn't on the path. improved colour coding of installer.
  • Added toParagraph method to the progress. Returns the output as a single string joined by the platform specific line delimitier.

1.6.2 #

1.6.1 #

  • organised imports.
  • Added method to find the primary version of a package installed into pubcache.
  • Added skip when not running on windows for the windows process helper tests.
  • Change the code which loads a list of processes to use windows api calls rather than spawning tasklist. There is a slight regression in that we can't get the memory used but I think thats not a feature that people will be using as yet.
  • method to allocate/free memory for ffi calls.
  • Released 1.6.0.
  • Fixed the isCompiled method so it also works on windows.
  • reimplemented isPrivilegedUser with ffi calls.

1.5.12 #

  • Fixed a bug in the call to chmod during the dart sdk install from archives.

1.5.11 #

  • Fixed a a path that we use to look for dart during installation.
  • Removed use of ansi chars to show dart sdk progress as having problems in a docker container. Now just print a '.' each time data arrives.

1.5.10 #

  • Added code to catch error if we attempt to read the cursorPosition if stdin is closed.

1.5.9 #

  • Changed the installer so it no longer uses apt to install dart as the apt package is always stale. Now always install from the dart archives.
  • Also fixed a bug where the installer failed to install dart as it incorrected thought that dart was installed.

1.5.8 #

  • Added back in the global activation of dcli as we have removed the sudo requirement which means that https://github.com/dart-lang/sdk/issues/46255 no longer applies.
  • Added documenation on using chmod. Added Windodws support by making the call a noop.
  • Changed DartProject.isReadyToRun to use DartSdk.isPubGetRequired as this does a more complete check.

1.5.7 #


  • Fixed a bug in the namedLock class. If a lot of threads where trying to get a hard lock then then thread with the lock couldn't get a hard lock to release it. Threads without a lock now check for a valid file lock before trying to get a hard lock. Fixed lock tests so they now work every time.
  • unit tests for project_create_test.dart now work correctly.
  • Fixed the ask test. The message now is wrapped in ansi red encoding which is why it started failed.
  • NamedLock - Fixed a bug with the wait loop for taking a hard lock that was waiting 30secs * 30secs rather than just 30 secs. suppressed lint.


  • Added verbose statement when exception is thrown in named lock.
  • Changed logging to directly use verbose to improve performance.
  • removed an verbose logger in the progress as it was generating execessive logs.
  • added detached and terminal options to DartSDK.run method.
  • Added details on Pub Cache to doctor and some general formatting cleanup.
  • removed refernces to the dcli cache as its no longer used.
  • Improved the code the checks that a package name conforms to a dart indentifier.
  • critical_tests setup hook now exists with a non-zero exit code if not running as a privilged user under windows.
  • removed the isPriviliged requirement unless we are running on windows.
  • Added method runPubGet to the DartScript class. Fixed the run_test.dart unit test which failed to run pub get after creating the script.
  • added calls to pub get for each of the test packages to ensure they are ready to run
  • Added method to check if pub get needs to be run DartScript.isPubGetRequired
  • Added logic to critical_test startup prehook to run pub get on all test packages.
  • NamedLock - Moved from a raw socket to a tcp socket and change the port no. to a value below 10000 (9003) as this is what is requierd to work on Windows.
  • Added logic to remove empty strings from the PATH which can occur if the path contains two adjacent delimiters;

1.5.6 #

updated documentation link.

1.5.5 #

Updated the homepage.

1.5.4 #

removed the dcli symlink for sudo as it just wasn't going to work.

1.5.3 #

  • performance improvements for unit tests.
  • restricted the privileged requirements on install to windows.
  • Merge branch 'master' of https://github.com/bsutton/dcli
  • GitBook: [master] 67 pages modified
  • Fixed the named lock trash test so it shuts down cleanly.

1.6.0-beta.1 #

  • improved performance of unit tests by removing unnecessary testfilesystem.
  • Fixed a bug in the new extensionSearch which was returning the full path to the found exe rather than just the basename as passed in.
  • removed debugging code.
  • Merge branch 'master' of https://github.com/bsutton/dcli
  • Fixed a major bug in find. When a directory contained more than 100 child directories all child directories were returned but the contents of every second directory (after the first 100) where not returned.
  • Added extensionSearch to start function.
  • Fixed bug in createScript as it was ignore the project path.
  • Changed ask and confirm to return immediately if no terminal is attached.
  • added checks that we are running as a privliged users.
  • Added windows registry methods regIsOnUserPath and regPrependtoPath
  • Added extensionSearch argument to which function. The argument only affects windows and causes the which command to search the set of possible extensions defined in PATHEXT.
  • deprecated addToPATHIfAbsent in favour of appendToPath which now does a check before adding the path.

1.5.2 #


  • Added working directory option to DartScript.compile.
  • Added method to instantiate a DartProject from .pub-cache.


  • a bug were we throw if the template folder doesn't exist. We now print a message asking the user to install dcli.

Removed the call to globally activate dcli. We are not currently supporting the standalone dcli_install exe and there appears to be a bug in dart that stops us form do a global activate whilst running under sudo. https://github.com/dart-lang/sdk/issues/46255

Change the arguments to DartScript.run so that 'args' is an optional name paramter. I don't think this is in regular usage as yet so shouldn't cause too many issues and it will result in a compile error which is easy to fix.

1.5.1 #

Deprecated DartProject.current in favour of DartProject.self and DartScript.current in favour of DartScript.self. Current was ambigous; for a project was it the current running project or the one in the current directory. Change DartScript to self for consistency.

Fixed a bug caused by the dart_console. If you try to get the screen dimensions when no terminal is attached it causes the app to hang.

Changed the rootPath so it returns 'C:' on windows.

1.5.0 #

This release largely focuses on fixes for Windows.


  • update dart version to 2.13 so we can use the latest win32.
  • dcli install now updates the PATH registry settings and notifies all top level windows.


  • A set of registry functions to set/get registry keys.
  • Added method loggedInUsersHome for WindowsMixin
  • Added new methods to Terminal()
  • writeline with text alignment.
  • cursorUp/Down/Left/Right
  • get/set current column/row cursor position.
  • support for running .dart scripts from the command and power shell prompts. You can now rung hello.dart rather than dart hello.dart
  • Created new function withOpenFile that opens a file for the duration of a callback.
  • Created new function fileLength that returns the length of a file.


  • Deprecated methods in Terminal
    • previousUp in favor of cursorUp
    • lines in favour of rows.


  • numerous issues with ansi/terminal under windows. Now use the dart_console package to handle the windows setup.
  • Stopped the terminal trying to get the cursor position when we don't have a terminal as this just caused the app to hang.
  • a bug in Ansi.isSupported which was testing stdin for ansi support when we should have tested stdout. Ansi colors now work on windows.
  • the uri construction for accessing assets so it works under windows.
  • a bug in sleep function. Was using microseconds when milliseconds was passed.
  • detection of pub_cache location. Should now work on all versions of windows.
  • the root prefix when privatising paths on windows.
  • bug where dcli doctor wasn't finding the dcli path as we were searching for the wrong name.
  • the cmd shell was incorrectly reporting that it had privileges.
  • Attempt to fix the problem with DartScript.scriptName when running globally activated. We have been getting a dart version no. in the scriptName which I'm now stripping out. Hopefully this is the correct action.
  • fixed path building so that createTempDir now works correctly on windows.

1.3.0 #

Added new methods

  • withFileProtection. Allows you to back a collection of files/directories run an action and then restore any changes to those files/directories. Handy when implementing dry run type features.
  • restorePrivileges. Implemented to complement restorePrivileges
  • calculateHash. Generates an sha256 checksum on a file.


  • all internall calls to Settings().verbose have been changed to verbose to reduce logging overheads.
  • Upgraded to dart 2.13 - google tells me that this still allows older packages to work with dcli.
  • Added keep arguments to withTempFile and withTempDir to preseve the temp directories. Handy for examining problems with unit tests.
  • Changed truepath to call normalize rather than canonicalize as canonicalize changes the case of paths on Windows. I believe this should be non-breaking.
  • Added support for windows \ path separator in the find function.


  • Fixed a bug where find failed if an absolute path was prepended to the pattern. Now works for no path, a relative path and an absolute path prefixed to the pattern.
  • Improvements to the DartProject and DartScript path detection when running unit tests under windows.

Known Problems:

Note we have found a problem using forEach with the start function.

start('ls *.txt').forEach( print);

Currently this works and look like it is going to have to be part of the process re-org we are working through. In the mean time you can use:

for (final line in start('ls *.txt', progress: Progress.capture().lines) {print(line);}

1.2.3 #

Added new methods:

  • withTempDir - Allows you to run a callback with access to a temporary directory which is automatically cleaned up when the callback completes.
  • withTempFile - Allows you to run a callback with access to a temporary file which is automatically cleaned up when the callback completes.
  • createTempFilename


  • Deprecated FileSync.tempFile in favour of createTempFilename
  • updated unit tests to reduce reliance of TestFileSystem to speed up the unit tests.
  • depcrecated FileSync.tempFile in favour of creaeTempFilename updated to use teh new createTempFilename
  • Added ignoreMissing arg to backupFile. Now throws a BackupFileException if the backup file is missing and ignoreMissing is not set.


  • Fixed the Ansi.strip command as the unit tests were falely reporting that they worked.


  • Added method to ProcessHelper to obtain a complete list of running processes. Not currently supported on osx.

1.2.2 #

Reverted method names on DartScript from pathToDartScript to pathToScript and similar to reduce api breakage.

1.2.1 #

  • Fixed accidentail breakage. renamed some methods to use 'library' rather than 'script'.
  • Changed Ansi.strip to a static method to match convention used for other Ansi methods.
  • Added overwriteLine to Terminal class. Added Ansi().strip method to stripout ansi escape sequences from a string.
  • Changed run to print stdout and stderr to the console rather than devNull so it was consistent with other functions.
  • Added run method to make it easy to run the dart exe. Change runPub to print stderr and stdout to the console rather than supress it.
  • Changed startFromArgs to print stderr and stdout by default so it is consistent with outer functions.
  • formatting.

1.2.0 #

Breaking Change:

  • Renamed Script to DartScript to make way for integration with cli_script.

  • As Script was labelled as an internal class this hopefully shouldn't be too disruptive.

  • DartScript is now part of the public api.

  • Code changes should simply required changing Script to DartScript as the api is identical.

  • Progress ctor now setting _includedStd(out, err) based on whether devNull is passed as the relevant LineAction. Previously _includeStderr wasn't being enabled if a LineAction was passed.

  • Improvements to processing of 'detached' processes.

  • Added sudo tag to tests so these can be run separately.

  • Fixed a bug where nothrow was not being passed down pubRun.

  • Improved doco on detached argument to start.

  • Changed the installer (yet again) to require privileges to be run. We now releasePrivileges to and withPrivileges to provide more precise control over what we execute with privileges.

1.1.1 #

Fixed a bug in the menu function when the passed 'limit' argument is greater than the no. of options.

1.1.0 #

Breaking Change: Change the 'search' argument on DartProject.fromPath to default to true rather than false.
On looking at the documentation and the common usages the search logic is assumed to be on. This should only affect a small no. of people as you would only want search off if you are creating a dart project from scratch.


  • simple backup and restore methods backupFile and restoreFile.
  • getters in DartProject for the common paths in a dart project folder.
  • Added columns and lines methods to Terminal
  • Unit tests for copy function.


  • Improved the exception messages for the copy function when things go bad as the OS errors are ambiguous.
  • Documentation improvements.

1.0.9 #

Fixed a bug in the createTempDir method and added unit test for same.

1.0.8 #

Exposed method createTempDir.

1.0.7 #

BUG: runPubGet was not passing down the Progress so you couldn't dump the output if so desired.

1.0.6 #

Updated readme.

1.0.5 #

Deprecated ProgressWithCapture and moved the capture logic into the base Progress class. Use Progress.capture() instead.

  • Modified startFromArgs to NOT print any output by default.
  • This is to bring it in line with start.
  • If you currently use startFromArgs and want to continue with the original behaviour you will need to change how you call startFromArgs
startFromArgs('ls', ['-la']);


startFromArgs('ls', ['-la'], progress: Progress.print);

This change is in response to issue #134

  • Switched to using critical_test package for running unit tests.
  • Added method runPub to DartSdk.
  • Improved the code doco for find
  • Added unit tests for progress methods toList and forEach

1.0.4 #

Update README.md

1.0.3 #


  • Added method isPrivilegedPasswordRequired to test if the sudo password is currently cached.
  • For the installer added logic to suppress the sudo requirement if the link path is already writable or we are already privileged. If we are going to prompt - for the password we now warn the user.

1.0.2 #

Fixed a bug in the shell detection logic.

1.0.1 #

Replace now takes a Pattern so you can do a Regx replacement as well as a simple string replacement.

1.0.0 #

No major changes. The api is now stable enough for us to consider this a 1.0 release :) upgraded to release versions os csv, equatable and ini package.

0.51.10 #

Fixed a bug ith the install when 'pub' command is not on the path. Now correctly uses dart pub.

  • You can now use the start function and capture the output with a simple progress.
  • Allowed the priviliged flag to work on osx as well as linux for the start function.
  • Improvements to documenation.
  • Fixed the import path for dcli on the templates which I broke when fixing lints.

0.51.7 #

Added work around for "Invalid Argument' when using the find command over a steam directory tree. We just log the path and keep on trucking.

0.51.6 #

Added code to return the exit code even when running a process in a terminal. This is to resolve #100. However I'm not certain if the exit code will be meaningful as it might just be the terminals exit code.

  • Added new createTempDir thanks to @Reductions

  • Moved to only support 2.12 and not the beta.

  • tweaked the template expander to remove any lint warnings. Updated the expander so that it updates the dcli and package versions.

  • Remove the lock logic around creating as testfile system as its no longer needed and greatly slows down testing.

  • Change default shell detection expected as mostly we run it from the cli.

  • Added logic so that the template builder updates the dcli and dependency versions to match the current versions used by dcli.

  • Migrated to full set of lint rules in lint package. First pass revert to 80chars.

  • moved back to using pubspec now that nnbd version has been released.

  • moved to official validators library.

0.51.5 #

Hack to get around getIsolateID nndb bug.

0.51.4 #

  • Updated to latest readme content from gitbooks
  • Improved the Env documentation.

0.51.3 #

Updated template pubspec.yaml to have the correct args package. Updated the installer so that it replaces the templates when a new version of dcli is installed.

0.51.2 #

removed hard coded verbose:true statement

0.51.1 #

Fixed the toList String extensions so that it never returns nulls.

0.51.0 #

Extended version ranges for ini.

0.51.0 #

Moved to temporary validators2 which I published so dcli can be full nndb. Hopefully the validators authors will update their package shortly.

0.50.2 #

re-added ini support. Upgraded to latest packages.

0.50.1 #

re-added args as a transitive dependency. I'm still uncertain if this is a good idea.

0.50.0 #

First full nnbd release.

  • Removed support for 32bit installs until system_info releases a nnbd version.
  • Changed to pubspec2 until pubspec is released with nnpd.
  • changed createScript to expect a script name not a full path.
  • Fixed the exception handling for dcli exceptions that I screwed up.
  • Moved to using posix to get parent pid. Impoved exception handling.
  • Used late final to do delayed initialisation. Added exceptions when pub get or dart not installed.
  • updated doco

  • Finalised nnbd migration by bringing the validators class into the project.
  • Fixed bug in version if dart not installed.

0.41.12 #

Added verbose output when setting environment vars.

0.41.11 #

Exposed isXXX members that were being hidden for no good reason.

0.41.10 #

  • Improved the move error message when the target directory doesn't exist.
  • grammar improvements in script.dart's doco.

0.41.9 #

Removed code in env which tried to update the platform.environment settings which of course is impossible.

0.41.8 #

0.41.7 #

  • Added documentation for compile method.
  • Added version to help message.

0.41.6 #

Release due to bug in pub_release that was not updating the 'latest' tag

0.41.5 #

Fixed bug in getlogin (Shell.loggedInUser) when running in docker. Now corretly returns 'root' as before it was seg faulting in the posix code.

0.41.4 #

With pub_release fixed so it can upload assets this release is to take advantage of that

0.41.3 #

Testing of pub_release uploading exes.

0.41.1 #

  • Improved documentation around waitForEx stack traces and added a test for same.
  • Added test for wait_for_ex exceptions.
  • Added cause to dcliexception.

0.41.0 #

  • BREAKING CHANGE: renamed the find argument 'root' to ' workingDirectory'. As I'm using the api I've found that I naturally go to use workingDirectory as its used everywhere else. So this feels more consistent.
  • Implemented chown using the posix api via ffi.
  • Added protection for a number of anomalies that can occur when scanning a full file system.

0.40.6 #

  • Implemented chown using the posix api via ffi.

  • exposed chmod.
  • Added protection for a number of anomoulies that can occur when scanning a full file system.
  • BREAKING CHANGE: renamed the find argument 'root' to ' workingDirectory'. As I'm using the api I've found that I naturally go to use workingDirectory as its used everywhere else. So this feels more consistent.
  • released 0.40.5

0.40.5 #

  • Added release hook to activate published version of dcli.
  • sorted dependencies.
  • Fixed the isReadyToRun method as it was looking for .dart_code rather than .dart_tool

0.40.4 #

  • exposed the PosixShell.
  • Added tests for loggedInUsersHome.

0.40.3 #

  • reverted to returning null for a non-existing key as the changes were too destructive and end up with rather ugly code.
  • Added logging of the pub-cache path.

0.40.2 #

Minor changes to progress messages.

0.40.1 #

Introduced isPrivilegedProcess so we can always tell if we started with privilegese. Changed isPrivilegedUser back to its original semantics in that it reflects the current effective user id. Fixed withPrivileges so it uses isPriviliegedProcess to correctly determine if privileges exist. Fix the 'start' function so that it interats correctly with wiithPrivileges and releasePrivileges.

0.40.0 #

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Accessing an environment key which doesn't exists now throws EnvironmentKeyNotFound rather than returning a null. This is in prepare for nnbd.
  • Updated doco for Env.
  • Changed from using whoami to to using getuid for posix systems.

0.39.10 #

Implemented Shell.current.releasePrivileges and Shell.current.withPriviliges

0.39.9 #

  • Made the Script.isCompiled method more reliable.
  • Fixed the Script.pathToScript path when in a compiled exe. It was just returning the pwd.
  • replaced calls to absolute with truepath
  • Moved the verbose statement in the copy function up so we will see it even if an exception is thrown.
  • removed the --suffix switch as no longer supported from git_release hook.

0.39.8 #

0.39.7 #

Added additional checks for version nos.

0.39.6 #

Added method to check if the script is running from pub-cache.

0.39.5 #

  • Fixes #126 - Does not like dashes in directory name. We now replace any invalid chars in the project name with _.
  • Relaxed the requirement that the default value had to pass the validator. It made it hard to initialise the default from an uninitialised settings file.

0.39.4 #

  • Fixed a bug where the fetch caused an app to not shutdown as we failed to close the client.
  • Adding fish shell support
  • the method is a getter.
  • Code no longer exludes proc et el directories if running 2.10 or later as bug is fixed.

0.39.3 #

Fixed a bug on osx where the install was looking for dart in the wrong place.

0.39.2 #

  • tried removing the futures now we fixed the core problem with the stackoverflow.
  • work on stackoverflow - tried leaving the subscription until after the progress event returns.
  • attempt to fix the stackoverflow caused by fetch progress events that use the echo function. The progress events are now async which I hope will resolve the issue.

0.39.1 #

Fixed bug for windows cmd shell when running isPriviligedUser

0.39.0 #

  • Removed the development mode requirement for dcli as we no longer symlink under windows.
  • Added notes on the symlink methods for running under windows.
  • Improved the version message when dcli install hasn't been run.

0.38.0 #

change calls to 'pub' to 'dart pub'.

0.37.2 #

finally fixed the clearLine method. Looks like it was the flush in the echo method that was causing the problem. Now using stdout.write directly.

0.37.1 #

  • Updated the path to use a test script rather than the eample directory.
  • Fixed a bug with resolving symbolic links when the link was to a directory.

0.37.0 #

  • We now take pub from the PATH rather than calculating it from the dart directory as on some systems its not in the dart-sdk dir.
  • moved from pedantic to lint and removed all of the lint warnings.

0.35.0 #

We now test if dart compile is supported (2.10 onwards) and use that rather than dart2native.

0.34.6 #

  • Added support in the find method for patterns that contain a partial path.
  • added lint to warn about incorrect usage of await.
  • Fixed the doco on the append method as it incorrectly states that newline is a bool.

0.34.5 #

renamed example/readme.md to example/example.md as looks like the doco I found was wrong on what name was required.

0.34.4 #

Created an examples/readme.md to highlight additional examples.

0.34.3 #

Fixed code that was using find and forgetting to turn recursion off.

0.34.2 #

Added exception handler to find to deal with files being deleted during the find operation.

0.34.1 #

  • Fixed two bugs in the NamedLock which effectively made it totally non-functional. The lock name had changed to have a leading '.' which meant the find command didn't find the locks and the parser no longer parsed the pid from the lock file name.
  • Added new unit test that can now detected if a lock isn't taken correctly.

0.34.0 #

Added methods to encode environment vars to json and then restore them from json.

0.33.8 #

  • Added 'entries' and 'addAll' methods to Env.
  • removed save as you can't update the Platform.environment.

0.33.7 #

Added method to save the environment back to the platform.

0.33.6 #

command line completion for dcli cli: added test for an invalid path. Added logic to quote paths that contains spaces. Added bash option so it won't add a space after directory names.

0.33.5 #

tweak tab completion so that dir/ matches the ls behaviour.

0.33.4 #

Simplified the logic and doing a better job of directory expansion. Still has a problem with two matching directories.

0.33.3 #

tab completion now works with a complete directory name as the search word.

0.33.2 #

work on improving the tab completion when a partial path is entered.

0.33.1 #

Fixed a bug in confirm as it needs to explictly set required .

0.33.0 #

  • upgraded package versions for dart 2.10 compatability.
  • moved humanReadable into Format class and made it part of the public api. Changed Format.percentage to static.
  • Modifyed the prompt argument to accept an empty string rather than null to make way for null safety
  • Added 'required' parameter to ask.
  • Update windows_installer.yml

0.32.6 #

  • Update windows_installer.yml

  • Fixes for unit tests

  • the root dir was not deterministic for testing so changed to a path we own.

  • removed the bash launcher and changed expect to sh.

  • added missing default.

  • add arg to suppress dcli install.

  • removed the @pubspec as we no longer support it.

  • Added option to test file system to no install dcli so we can test installing dcli.

  • Moved to using the Shell install method.

0.32.5 #

  • dcli create - improved doco and made the creating script prompt green.
    • Fixed a bug in the creation of the analysis_options path.
  • Added a dot before the name of the lock so it is hidden.
  • dart_project: centralise the lock filename,
  • pubspec.yaml.template: upgraded the min dcli and sdk versions.
  • exists - added verbose logging.

0.32.4 #

  • Updated DartProject.current so that it works somewhat intelligently for compiled scripts.
  • As a compiled script doesn't have a pubspec.yaml we will return the current working directory.

0.32.3 #

Added DartProject.current which will return the current script's dart project.

0.32.2 #

Fixed git_release script so that it stores the settings in a config file.

0.32.1 #

Fixed a bug with the logic to check for dart. Had the found logic inverted.

0.32.0 #

exported the Dependency class.

0.31.0 #

  • Changed which again. It now returns a specific class (Which) that contains information specfic to the which command which makes it much more intuitive to use.
  • Which: improved the doco.
  • Added the progress to the Which class.

0.30.0 #

Breaking Change: Changed the which function to return an list of paths rather than a progress as users expect to diretcly access the list. Added an hours interval to sleep.

0.29.2 #

Exposed the 'Interval' enum used by the sleep method.

0.29.1 #

somehow I reverted the code to remove the workingdirectory.

0.29.0 #

0.29.0 #

  • breaking change: PubSpec now returns a map for dependencies and dependency overrides rather than a list.
  • renamed the default.dart template to basic.dart as default is a dart keyword and was causing conflicts in the asset generation.
  • optimised the unit test by using a shared file system.
  • Fixed a bug in the unit test runner as we need to run with a bash shell rather than sh as a number of unit tests expect to find bash.
  • fixed a unit test as dependencies have changed fro ma list to a map.
  • change from env to loggedInUser as this will be more cross platform.
  • reverted logic that had the script being run from the script directory as it doesn't allow people to select the directory they want to run the script in.
  • removed references to syslog as it doesn't exists in the docker test environment.
  • updated name in pubspect to match directory.
  • added version no. to the install started message.
  • changed to using the newist patToProjectRoot
  • copyTree: Changed the default for the [recursive] argument. It is now true by default (it recurses). The command is copyTree which implies its recursive.
  • renamed directory test_scripts to test_script in line with dart conventions.
  • Fix: create was ignorning the passed templatename.
  • fixed bug as clean now works on projects not scripts.
  • added test for warmup.
  • removed the --package switch as we no longer need it as we have removed virtual projects.
  • re-implemented touch using native dart libs.
  • install: fixed bug where we were trying to use chmod to change ownership :<

0.28.0 #

  • This release includes significant changes to the dcli command line.
  • The command 'clean' has been renamed to warmup.
  • There is now a new 'clean' command which now does what the label says. It removes all build artifiacts.
  • Find: Added static properties for file, directory and link which can be used a short hand for FileSystemEntityType.
  • exposed the pub cache environment variable.
  • Added a method clean to DartProjects.
  • Added method warmup to DartProjects.
  • Added method to PubCache to set the .pub-cache path to an alternate location.
  • Improved the Move exception error.

  • Fixes to the docker unit tests.
  • Added test for integer validator.
  • Added compile entry point to Script and updated unit tests to use it.
  • Added a 'run' method to Script so users can easily run a script from the dcli api.
  • Fixed a bug in the compiler. Even if you agreed to overwrite the exe during the install it would still report an error.

0.27.1 #

  • Exposed DartProject class as part of the public api
  • Added color tests.

0.27.0 #

  • Small breaking change:
  • For each of the color function we have changed the argument bgcolor to background.
  • Abbreviations go against the coding guidelines and this one wasn't even very mature.

0.26.1 #

  • ENH: Added bold option to ansi colors and made it the default for the set of built in colors e.g. red(), green()
  • ENH: Added a compile method to DartProject and Script so that users can do compiles without spawning a new process.
  • removed dart_project until we decide how much to expose.
  • FIX: Fixed a number of bugs in dcli create,clean and compile after we stripped out virtual projects.
  • Fixed a bug where the pubspec name ended up as '.' when the script was created in the current directory.
  • Fixed a bug when trying to create a script in the local directory which was also the projectRoot.
  • FIX: Modified runDart2Native to take a full path to the executable file that is to be created and modified the dart2native call so it now runs in the scripts directory.

0.26.0 #

  • In a docker shell SUDO_USER isn't defined so we need to default back to 'root'

  • Improved the sudo detection.

  • Fixed the install so it will work for a root usage such as in a docker container.

  • Added ask and confirm examples to the script

  • PubSpecFile has been replaced with PubSpec.

  • Reduced pubspec to a single class now we have removed virtual projects.

0.25.0 #

This is a major update which has removed support for virtual pubspecs and pubspec annotations. The reality was that in production we used neither of these as ide's don't work with out an actual pubspec and in as the code built up we would normally cluster files into a single directory so having a pubspec wasn't an issue.

Change dcli create to generate a pubspec.yaml and an analysis_options.yaml. Also now generates a more complex sample using a template.

  • Ask: Added logic to hide default hidden values when logging.
  • Ask: Fixed bugs in the Ask.any method. Exposed valueRange and removed all of the validator classes from the public api.
  • AnsiColor: made AnsiColor class and static properties public so that you can actually use the background colours.
  • Clean: Added logic to stop pub get occuring when running under sudo.
  • PubspecFile: Added support for executables back in now the pubspec 0.1.5 has been released.
  • Improved the process of detecting the dartsdk by resolving sym links.
  • Fixed the paths so that dcli will run under sudo. The logic to find the dcli exe assumed it was on the path and that won't be the case during install.
  • updated the links to the dcli manual

0.24.1 #

Updated readme to refer to the new gitbook manual. touch : now returns the path that was passed in. Documentation improvements. Added Ask.any and Ask.all. Exposed all of the built in validators as methods.

0.24.0 #

added method to get overriden dependencies.

0.23.0 #

Breaking changes:

  • Added requirements for privileges when installing so we can set up paths for sudo usage of dcli. Also added option to disable the requirement primarily for unit testing.
  • Changed the names of all validators to start with AskValidator. The aim is to make auto completion in ide's work better.

Non breaking changes

  • Rewrote the find command so that it works even if a directory contains a file for which we don't have permissions.
  • Performance improvements for the find command by reducing the amount of heap allocation going on. We now re-use arrays as much as possible. We can process 1.3M files in 3 seconds. The performance problems start when we push the files into the Progress stream.
  • Updated doco to remove any references to setEnv
  • Changed from Platform.isWindows to Settings().isWindows so that we can mock the platform when unit testing.
  • createDir now returns the path that it created.
  • Marked some tests as skip until we work out what tests are required now we have changed how we handle pubspec.yaml

0.22.0 #

removed env() and setEnv() and replaced them with operators env[] and env[]=

0.21.2 #

Fixed a bug in the Progress.stream mehthod. It was only outputing stdout and it needs to also output stderr. It now does.

0.21.1 #

  • renamed _pubCacheBinDir to _pubCacheBinPath for consistency.
  • Changed the default stream method so that it now includes stderr by default as this is generally what people expect (e.g. stream what I would normally see).
  • Fixed the verbose messages that mis-reported why stream output was being ignored.

0.21.0 #

Breaking changes:

  • Refactored methods names related to paths. They now all start with a pathTo prefix.
  • The aim is to make it easier to find the methods and for ide auto-completion to be more useful.

All methods that refer to the PATH environment variable now use the capitalised word PATH in the method name.

0.20.2 #

Pubspec - Added support for fetching a list of executables.

0.20.0 #

Renamed dshell to dcli to better reflect its functionality and improve its discoverability on the pub.dev store.

Also took the opportunity to change the version no. to 0.x to reflect the fact that the api is still in flux.
