Welcome to the Dart API reference documentation, covering the core Dart API libraries. Some of the most fundamental Dart libraries include:

  • dart:core: Core functionality such as strings, numbers, collections, errors, dates, and URIs.
  • dart:html: DOM manipulation for web apps (available only to web apps).
  • dart:io: I/O for non-web apps.

Except for dart:core, you must import a library before you can use it. Here's an example of importing dart:async and dart:math:

import 'dart:async';
import 'dart:math';

You can install more libraries using the pub package manager.

Libraries

dart:ffi

Core

dart:async
Support for asynchronous programming, with classes such as Future and Stream. [...]
dart:collection
Classes and utilities that supplement the collection support in dart:core. [...]
dart:convert
Encoders and decoders for converting between different data representations, including JSON and UTF-8. [...]
dart:core
Built-in types, collections, and other core functionality for every Dart program. [...]
dart:developer
Interact with developer tools such as the debugger and inspector. [...]
dart:math
Mathematical constants and functions, plus a random number generator. [...]
dart:typed_data
Lists that efficiently handle fixed sized data (for example, unsigned 8 byte integers) and SIMD numeric types. [...]

VM

dart:cli
dart:io
File, socket, HTTP, and other I/O support for non-web applications. [...]
dart:isolate
Concurrent programming using isolates: independent workers that are similar to threads but don't share memory, communicating only via messages. [...]
dart:mirrors
Basic reflection in Dart, with support for introspection and dynamic invocation. [...]

Web

dart:html
HTML elements and other resources for web-based applications that need to interact with the browser and the DOM (Document Object Model). [...]
dart:indexed_db
A client-side key-value store with support for indexes. [...]
dart:js
Support for interoperating with JavaScript. [...]
dart:js_util
Utility methods to efficiently manipulate typed JSInterop objects in cases where the name to call is not known at runtime. You should only use these methods when the same effect cannot be achieved with @JS annotations. These methods would be extension methods on JSObject if Dart supported extension methods.
dart:svg
Scalable Vector Graphics: Two-dimensional vector graphics with support for events and animation. [...]
dart:web_audio
High-fidelity audio programming in the browser.
dart:web_gl
3D programming in the browser.
dart:web_sql
An API for storing data in the browser that can be queried with SQL. [...]
