  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support

  • linter

    Linter for Dart.

    I've already converted 70% of the JS implementation in Dart, only for the browser for test, but the result was not as good as I hoped. The bundle size at the moment is ~110kb (with the -O4 flag). And I happen to learn that using async/await additionally increases the size with ~30kb (this angulardart issue is the only explanation I could found).

  • dio

    A powerful Http client for Dart, which supports Interceptors, FormData, Request Cancellation, File Downloading, Timeout etc.

    I also had some troubles choosing which Dart HTTP client to use. I've started with dio, but when I tried to read one of our bigger JSON responses (~1.5mb) my browser tab froze (there seems to be an old issue describing the same behavior). After that I've switched to the default dart's http package and it is working fine but it doesn't have builtin requests abort/cancellation.

  • 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!
