Platform #

Build Status - Coverage Status - Pub

A generic platform abstraction for Dart.

Like dart:io, package:platform supplies a rich, Dart-idiomatic API for accessing platform-specific information.

package:platform provides a lightweight wrapper around the static Platform properties that exist in dart:io. However, it uses instance properties rather than static properties, making it possible to mock out in tests.
