Isar database can do much more (and we are just getting started)

  • 🕵️ Full-text search. Make searching fast and fun
  • 📱 Multiplatform. iOS, Android, Desktop
  • 🧪 ACID semantics. Rely on database consistency
  • 💃 Static typing. Compile-time checked and autocompleted queries
  • Beautiful documentation. Readable, easy to understand and ever-improving

Join the Telegram group for discussion and sneak peeks of new versions of the DB.

Quickstart #

Holy smokes you're here! Let's get started on using the coolest Flutter database out there...

1. Add to pubspec.yaml #

dependencies:
  isar: 4.0.0
  isar_flutter_libs: 4.0.0 # contains Isar Core

dev_dependencies:
  build_runner: any

2. Annotate a Collection #

part 'email.g.dart';

@collection
class Email {
  Email({
    this.id,
    this.title,
    this.recipients,
    this.status = Status.pending,
  });

  final int id;

  @Index(type: IndexType.value)
  final String? title;

  final List<Recipient>? recipients;

  final Status status;
}

@embedded
class Recipient {
  String? name;

  String? address;
}

enum Status {
  draft,
  pending,
  sent,
}

3. Open a database instance #

final dir = await getApplicationDocumentsDirectory();
final isar = await Isar.open(
  [EmailSchema],
  directory: dir.path,
);

4. Query the database #

final emails = isar.emails.where()
  .titleContains('awesome', caseSensitive: false)
  .sortByStatusDesc()
  .limit(10)
  .findAll();

Isar Database Inspector #

The Isar Inspector allows you to inspect the Isar instances & collections of your app in real-time. You can execute queries, edit properties, switch between instances and sort the data.

To launch the inspector, just run your Isar app in debug mode and open the Inspector link in the logs.

CRUD operations #

All basic crud operations are available via the IsarCollection.

final newEmail = Email()..title = 'Amazing new database';

await isar.writeAsync(() {
  isar.emails.put(newEmail); // insert & update
});

final existingEmail = isar.emails.get(newEmail.id!); // get

await isar.writeAsync(() {
  isar.emails.delete(existingEmail.id!); // delete
});

Database Queries #

Isar database has a powerful query language that allows you to make use of your indexes, filter distinct objects, use complex and(), or() and .xor() groups, query links and sort the results.

final importantEmails = isar.emails
  .where()
  .titleStartsWith('Important') // use index
  .limit(10)
  .findAll()

final specificEmails = isar.emails
  .filter()
  .recipient((q) => q.nameEqualTo('David')) // query embedded objects
  .or()
  .titleMatches('*university*', caseSensitive: false) // title containing 'university' (case insensitive)
  .findAll()

Database Watchers #

With Isar database, you can watch collections, objects, or queries. A watcher is notified after a transaction commits successfully and the target changes. Watchers can be lazy and not reload the data or they can be non-lazy and fetch new results in the background.

Stream<void> collectionStream = isar.emails.watchLazy();

Stream<List<Post>> queryStream = importantEmails.watch();

queryStream.listen((newResult) {
  // do UI updates
})

Benchmarks #

Benchmarks only give a rough idea of the performance of a database but as you can see, Isar NoSQL database is quite fast 😇

If you are interested in more benchmarks or want to check how Isar performs on your device you can run the benchmarks yourself.

Unit tests #

If you want to use Isar database in unit tests or Dart code, call await Isar.initializeIsarCore(download: true) before using Isar in your tests.

Isar NoSQL database will automatically download the correct binary for your platform. You can also pass a libraries map to adjust the download location for each platform.

Make sure to use flutter test -j 1 to avoid tests running in parallel. This would break the automatic download.
