Helps you get set up!

Stagehand helps you get your Dart projects set up and ready for the big show. It's a Dart project scaffolding generator, inspired by tools like Web Starter Kit and Yeoman.

Dart-savvy IDEs and editors use Stagehand behind the scenes to get project templates, but you can also use Stagehand on the command line (stagehand).

Stagehand templates

  • console-simple - A simple command-line application.
  • console-full - A command-line application sample.
  • package-simple - A starting point for Dart libraries or applications.
  • server-shelf - A web server built using the shelf package.
  • web-angular - A web app with material design components.
  • web-simple - A web app that uses only core Dart libraries.
  • web-stagexl - A starting point for 2D animation and games.


If you want to use Stagehand on the command line, install it using pub global activate:

> pub global activate stagehand

To update Stagehand, use the same pub global activate command.


Stagehand generates a project skeleton into the current directory. For example, here's how you create a package with Stagehand:

> mkdir fancy_project
> cd fancy_project
> stagehand package-simple

Here's how you list all of the project templates:

> stagehand


  • Opinionated and prescriptive; minimal to no options
