service_worker 0.2.3

Service Worker API for Dart #

Dart-y wrappers for the ServiceWorker APIs.

Warning: the API is experimental, and subject to change.

Service Workers #

A service worker is an event-driven worker registered against an origin and a path. It takes the form of a JavaScript file that can control the web page/site it is associated with, intercepting and modifying navigation and resource requests, and caching resources in a very granular fashion to give you complete control over how your app behaves in certain situations (the most obvious one being when the network is not available.)

A service worker is run in a worker context: it therefore has no DOM access, and runs on a different thread to the main JavaScript that powers your app, so it is not blocking. It is designed to be fully async; as a consequence, APIs such as synchronous XHR and localStorage can't be used inside a service worker.

Quickstart #

Register the Service Worker from your application script, like in example/web/main.dart:

import 'package:service_worker/window.dart' as sw;

void main() {
  if (sw.isSupported) {
  } else {
    print('ServiceWorkers are not supported.');

Write the Service Worker in a separate script, like in example/web/sw.dart:

import 'package:service_worker/service_worker.dart';

void main(List<String> args) {
  onInstall.listen((event) {
    print('ServiceWorker installed.');
