The state of server-side frameworks for Dart

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/dartlang

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • aqueduct

    Dart HTTP server framework for building REST APIs. Includes PostgreSQL ORM and OAuth2 provider.

    Aqueduct: This framework is no longer being supported by the original owners and will not be ported to null-safety for the foreseeable future. The library is so monolithic that it's a gargantuan task to maintain it, not to mention the growing dependency issues.

  • jaguar

    Jaguar, a server framework built for speed, simplicity and extensible. ORM, Session, Authentication & Authorization, OAuth

    The only remaining major server-side framework is Jaguar. Though the maintainer has stated that they will continue to maintain the project, there had been a five-month gap between the last two commits (there was, however, a null-safety commit yesterday).

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • drogon

    Drogon: A C++14/17 based HTTP web application framework running on Linux/macOS/Unix/Windows [Moved to: https://github.com/drogonframework/drogon] (by an-tao)

    For example, Drogon is said to be the fastest http server: https://github.com/an-tao/drogon.

  • shelf

    Web server middleware for Dart

    I've cared about this space for a while: https://github.com/dart-lang/shelf/commit/8fd1b3f1ac920cdf67a34364ef8593e4a46af1c3 :-)

  • aspectd

    AOP for Flutter(Dart)

    Another huge hole in Dart is the lack of native AOP capabilities. I was a heavy AspectJ user back in the day, so much so that I couldn't imagine doing OOP without AOP. I did see AspectD (https://github.com/XianyuTech/aspectd), but it's third party, not part of Dart natively.
