Flutter Starter CLI #

The Flutter Starter CLI is a very useful tool that provides commands for the ease of setting up a Flutter project from scratch.

Introduction #

Flutter Starter CLI is written in the Dart programming language.
While working with the Flutter projects we have to write the same repetitive code multiple times but using this CLI, we can create a Flutter template on the fly.
Also, the basic structure of all the tests in Flutter is the same. So this CLI also provides a basic starter pack for the Flutter test as well.

Out of the box, Flutter Starter CLI includes:-

  • State Management
    • BLoC - BLoC is a popular design/architectural pattern that is used to separate the logic from the UI.
    • RiverPod - A state-management library that catches programming errors at compile time and ensures that the code is testable.
  • API-Services
    • Dio - A powerful HTTP client for Dart, which supports Interceptors, Global configuration, FormData, Request Cancellation, File downloading, Timeout etc.
    • Http - A composable, Future-based library for making HTTP requests.
    • Graphql - A standalone GraphQL client for Flutter, bringing all the features from a modern GraphQL client to one easy to use package.
  • Basic Setup
    • Themes - Themes are used to share colors and font styles throughout an app.
    • Localization - The project provides support for multiple languages like English, Spanish and French.
    • Routing - Go_Router is used to provide a convenient, URL-based API for navigating between different screens.
  • Testing
    • Unit - A unit test tests a single function, method, or class.
    • Widget - A widget test tests a single widget.
    • Integration - An integration test tests a complete app or a large part of an app.

Dependencies #

Currently, the Flutter Starter CLI depends on the following packages:-

Package Version Description
args 2.3.1 Parses raw command-line arguments into a set of options and values.
mason_logger 0.2.2 Simple logging library for CLI requests.
path 1.8.2 The path package provides common operations for manipulating paths: joining, splitting, normalizing, etc.
pub_updater 0.2.2 A Dart package which enables checking whether packages are up to date and supports updating them.
flutter_lints 2.0.1 This package contains a recommended set of lints for Flutter apps, packages, and plugins to encourage good coding practices.
