Hetu Script

A lightweight scripting language written in Dart for embedding in Flutter apps.


Introduction #

Hetu is a lightweight scripting language purely written in Dart for embedding in Flutter apps. Our goal is to enable Flutter app & game to have hotfix and scripting ability.

Documentation 中文文档

Features #

  • Modern programming language syntax likes typescript/kotlin/swift, need very little time to get familiar with.
  • Full scripting language abilities: class OOP, prototype OOP, FP, module, errors, etc.
  • Runs on all platforms that flutter supports, including web browsers and desktop.
  • Extremely easy on binding, call Dart functions in script or call script functions in Dart with just one line.

Test Hetu script in the online playground.

Quick start #

To eval a string literal of Hetu code in Dart.

import 'package:hetu_script/hetu_script.dart';

void main() {
  final hetu = Hetu();
    var ht = {
      name: 'Hetu',
      greeting: () {
        print('Greetings from ${this.name}!')

To pass a Map to script, modify it in script and get it back:

import 'package:hetu_script/hetu_script.dart';

void main() {
  final hetu = Hetu();
  hetu.init(externalFunctions: {
    'hello': () => {'greetings': 'greetings from Dart!'},
  var hetuValue = hetu.eval(r'''
      external fun hello
      var dartValue = hello()
      dartValue['reply'] = 'Hi, this is Hetu.'
      dartValue // the script will return the value of it's last expression

  print('hetu value: $hetuValue');

You can check the documentation for more information on the grammar and binding.

IDE extension #

If you are using VS Code, you can download this extension to get basic highlight and dart snippets on bindings.

Command line tool #

We have a command line REPL tool for quick testing. You can activate by the following command:

dart pub global activate hetu_script_dev_tools

Then you can use command line tool 'hetu' in any directory on your computer.

More information about the command line tool can be found by enter 'hetu -h'.

If no arguments is provided, enter REPL mode.

In REPL mode, every exrepssion you entered will be evaluated and print out immediately.

If you want to write multiple line in REPL mode, use '\' to end a line.

>>>var a = 42
null // repl print
42 // repl print
>>>fun meaning {\
return a }
null // repl print
meaning() -> any // repl print
42 // repl print

You can check this official document for more information on 'pub global activate'.
