igdb_client #

A Dart library for using the IGDB.com API v3 https://api-docs.igdb.com/

It is highly recommended to read through the IGDB documentation to understand what exactly you can do with the API.

Limitations #

Premium features (including IGDB user authentication) are not supported and I don't currently have plans to add support for them as I don't have access to these.

Usage #

To start using this, just add it to your pubspec:

pub package

See example/igdb_client_example.dart for a more in depth example of some of the things you can do with this client. Otherwise a simple example can be found below.

import 'package:igdb_client/igdb_client.dart';

var client = new IGDBClient(

var gamesResponse = await client.games(new IGDBRequestParameters(
  limit: 3


if (gamesResponse.isSuccess()) {
  // do something with gamesResponse.data
else {
  // do something depending on gamesResponse.error

Changelog #

import 'api_key.dart';

import 'package:igdb_client/igdb_client.dart';

var client = new IGDBClient(

main() async {

  // Find games with 'infamous' in their name and return
  // the results' name and expand their release_dates and platforms.
  var gamesResponse = await client.games(new IGDBRequestParameters(
    search: 'infamous',
    fields: ['name', 'release_dates.*', 'platforms.*']

  // Find games that are not yet released but are releasing soon in the
  // North American, Worlwide, or Unspecified regions, then sort by 
  // release date.
  int msecSinceEpoch = DateTime.now().millisecondsSinceEpoch;
  int secsSinceEpoch = msecSinceEpoch~/1000;
  String timeNow = secsSinceEpoch.toString();
  var releaseResponse = await client.releaseDates(new IGDBRequestParameters(
    filters: 'date > $timeNow & (region = ${IGDBRegions.NORTH_AMERICA.id} | region = ${IGDBRegions.NONE.id} | region = ${IGDBRegions.WORLDWIDE.id})',
    order: 'date asc'

  var gameIdResponse = await client.games(new IGDBRequestParameters(
    ids: [43378],

printResponse(IGDBResponse resp) {

Maintenance suggestions

The package description is too short. (-20 points)

Add more detail to the description field of pubspec.yaml. Use 60 to 180 characters to describe the package, what it does, and its target use case.

Package is pre-v0.1 release. (-10 points)

While nothing is inherently wrong with versions of 0.0.*, it might mean that the author is still experimenting with the general direction of the API.
