return range.currentCharacters;
}
return null;
}

pretty_dio_logger 1.1.1

Example:


Dio dio = Dio();
dio.interceptors.add(PrettyDioLogger());
// customization
dio.interceptors.add(PrettyDioLogger(
requestHeader: true,
requestBody: true,
responseBody: true,
responseHeader: false,
error: true,
compact: true,
maxWidth: 90));

extension 0.2.0

extension 0.2.0

Another useful library for Flutter that will extent your dart methods.

For example use plural forms for Russian words


plural(1, 'дом', 'дома', 'домов'); // returns дом
plural(2, 'дом', 'дома', 'домов'); // returns дома
plural(5, 'дом', 'дома', 'домов'); // returns домов

Or some fancy methods to get date:


// Is today
DateTime.now().isToday; // return bool
There are also a couple of useful links to other libraries inside.

IsolatedWorker().run(doSomeHeavyCalculation, 1000);

timeago 3.1.0 

timeago 3.1.0 

If you need fuzzy timestamps, you need to save this library.  It takes you only five minutes and will save you a lot of effort. All you have to do is load the locales you want, because this library only supports English and Spanish.

The easiest way to use this library via top-level function format(date):

final fifteenAgo = new DateTime.now().subtract(new Duration(minutes: 15));

print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo)); // 15 minutes ago
print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo, locale: 'en_short')); // 15m
print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo, locale: 'es')); // hace 15 minutos

// Or generate a new key randomly
var rng = new Random.secure();
