    To be honest, there's not much to it! It's a single-file add-on for the shelf package with about 100 lines of code, and the comment for the ProxyHandler class at the top sums up the shelf-proxy package pretty well:

    The Dart Language Tour has all of this basic stuff but better, and when you're done, look at the shelf package on if you want to get started on creating a server.

    These are the best backend frameworks for Dart right now but you can use the shelf package if you want a slightly different approach

  • Server-side Dart
    4 projects | | 3 Oct 2022
    There was a time, I want to start a new project and have to choose what technologies to use for the frontend and backend parts as well. Research gets me to Aqueduct and Shelf, both of them weren't looking actively developing and supported and that leads me to the idea to make my own small micro-framework like Echo for Golang or Bottle for Python. And it was easy to decide: I've had time and motivation :)

    We are't using one of the frameworks for Dart on the backend (Conduit, Dart Frog) and instead built on top of shelf for both the projects we've used Dart on the backend for - one we went for a gRPC approach and the implemented a REST API.
