File

A generic file system abstraction for Dart.

Like dart:io, package:file supplies a rich Dart-idiomatic API for accessing a file system.

Unlike dart:io, package:file:

  • Can be used to implement custom file systems.
  • Comes with an in-memory implementation out-of-the-box, making it super-easy to test code that works with the file system.
  • Allows using multiple file systems simultaneously. A file system is a first-class object. Instantiate however many you want and use them all.

Usage

Implement your own custom file system:

import 'package:file/file.dart';

class FooBarFileSystem implements FileSystem { ... }

Use the in-memory file system:

import 'package:file/memory.dart';

var fs = new MemoryFileSystem();

Use the local file system (requires dart:io access):

import 'package:file/local.dart';

var fs = const LocalFileSystem();
