  • Shared preference with RxDart Stream observation.
  • Reactive shared preferences for Flutter.
  • Reactive stream wrapper around SharedPreferences.
  • This package provides reactive shared preferences interaction with very little code. It is designed specifically to be used with Flutter and Dart.

More detail about returned Observable

  • Observable will emit the initial value as its first next event (Emit value as soon as possible after is listen to) (emit null when value is not set)
  • It will automatic emit value when value associated with key was changed successfully (emit null when value associated with key was removed or set to null)
  • When read value is not valid type (wrong type):
    • Will emit error if value is present (not null)
    • Emit null when value is absent (value is null) (this occurred because null can be cast to any type).
  • Can emit two consecutive data events that are equal. You should use Rx operator like distinct (More commonly known as distinctUntilChanged in other Rx implementations) to create an Observable where data events are skipped if they are equal to the previous data event.

Getting Started #

In your flutter project, add the dependency to your pubspec.yaml

dependencies:
  ...
  rx_shared_preferences: <latest_version>

Usage #

1. Import and instance #

Import rx_shared_preferences and shared_preferences

import 'package:rx_shared_preferences/rx_shared_preferences.dart';
import 'package:shared_preferences/shared_preferences.dart';

Wrap your SharedPreferences in a RxSharedPreferences.

final rxPrefs = RxSharedPreferences(
  await SharedPreferences.getInstance()
);

or not need keyword await before SharedPreferences.getInstance()

final rxPrefs = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance()
);

2. Can add a logger #

You can add logger optional parameter to RxSharedPreferences constructor. Logger will log messages about operations (such as read, write) and observable values

final rxPrefs = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance(),
  const DefaultLogger(),
);

You can custom Logger by implements Logger, or extends class LoggerAdapter (with empty implementations)

class MyLogger extends LoggerAdapter {
  const MyLogger();

  @override
  void readValue(Type type, String key, value) {
    // do something
  }
}

final rxPrefs = RxSharedPreferences(
  SharedPreferences.getInstance(),
  const MyLogger(),
);

3. Select observable (stream) and use #

  • And then, just listen Observable, transform Observable through operators such as (map, flatMap, etc...).

  • If you need listen to this Observable many times, you can use broadcast operators such as share, shareValue, publish, publishValue, ...

  • Note: RxDart's Observables extends the Stream class:

    • All methods defined on the Stream class exist on RxDart's Observables as well.
    • All Observables can be passed to any API that expects a Dart Stream as an input.
    • Additional important distinctions are documented as part of the Observable class
// Listen
rxPrefs.getStringListObservable('KEY_LIST').listen(print); // [*]

// Broadcast stream
rxPrefs.getStringListObservable('KEY_LIST').share();
rxPrefs.getStringListObservable('KEY_LIST').shareValue();

// Transform stream
rxPrefs.getIntObservable('KEY_INT')
  .map((i) => /* Do something cool */)
  .where((i) => /* Filtering */)
  ...

// must **use same rxPrefs** instance when set value and select stream
rxPrefs.setStringList('KEY_LIST', ['Cool']); // [*] will print ['Cool']

  • In the previous example we re-used the RxSharedPreferences object rxPrefs for set operations. All set operations must go through this object in order to correctly notify subscribers.

  • In flutter, you:

    • Can create global RxSharedPreferences instance.
    • Can use InheritedWidget/Provider to provide a RxSharedPreferences instance (create it in main function) for all widgets (recommended). See example/main, example/provider.
rxPrefs1.getStringListObservable('KEY_LIST').listen(print); // [*]

rxPrefs2.setStringList('KEY_LIST', ['Cool']); // [*] will not print anything

The previous example is wrong using way.

4. Get and set methods like to SharedPreferences

RxSharedPreferences is like to SharedPreferences, it provides read, write functions:

-  Future<bool> containsKey(String key);
-  Future<dynamic> get(String key);
-  Future<bool> getBool(String key);
-  Future<double> getDouble(String key);
-  Future<int> getInt(String key);
-  Future<Set<String>> getKeys();
-  Future<String> getString(String key);
-  Future<List<String>> getStringList(String key);

-  Future<bool> clear();
-  Future<void> reload();
-  Future<bool> commit();
-  Future<bool> remove(String key);
-  Future<bool> setBool(String key, bool value);
-  Future<bool> setDouble(String key, double value);
-  Future<bool> setInt(String key, int value);
-  Future<bool> setString(String key, String value);
-  Future<bool> setStringList(String key, List<String> value);

5. Dispose RxSharedPreferences

You can dispose RxSharedPreferences when is no longer needed. Just call rxPrefs.dispose(). Usually you call this method on dispose of a State

2. Change theme and locale (language) runtime
