path library

Classes

Context
An instantiable class for manipulating paths. Unlike the top-level functions, this lets you explicitly select what platform the paths will use.
Style
An enum type describing a "flavor" of path.

Properties

context Context
The system path context. [...]
final
current String
Gets the path to the current working directory. [...]
read-only
posix Context
A default context for manipulating POSIX paths.
final
separator String
Gets the path separator for the current platform. This is \ on Windows and / on other platforms (including the browser).
read-only
style Style
Returns the Style of the current context. [...]
read-only
url Context
A default context for manipulating URLs. [...]
final
windows Context
A default context for manipulating Windows paths.

Functions

absolute(String part1, [ String part2, String part3, String part4, String part5, String part6, String part7 ]) String
Creates a new path by appending the given path parts to current. Equivalent to join() with current as the first argument. Example: [...]
basename(String path) String
Gets the part of path after the last separator. [...]
basenameWithoutExtension(String path) String
Gets the part of path after the last separator, and without any trailing file extension. [...]
canonicalize(String path) String
Canonicalizes path. [...]
dirname(String path) String
Gets the part of path before the last separator. [...]
equals(String path1, String path2) bool
Returns true if path1 points to the same location as path2, and false otherwise. [...]
extension(String path) String
Gets the file extension of path: the portion of basename from the last . to the end (including the . itself). [...]
fromUri(dynamic uri) String
Returns the path represented by uri, which may be a String or a Uri. [...]
hash(String path) int
Returns a hash code for path such that, if equals returns true for two paths, their hash codes are the same. [...]
isAbsolute(String path) bool
Returns true if path is an absolute path and false if it is a relative path. [...]
isRelative(String path) bool
Returns true if path is a relative path and false if it is absolute. On POSIX systems, absolute paths start with a / (forward slash). On Windows, an absolute path starts with \\, or a drive letter followed by :/ or :\.
isRootRelative(String path) bool
Returns true if path is a root-relative path and false if it's not. [...]
isWithin(String parent, String child) bool
Returns true if child is a path beneath parent, and false otherwise. [...]
join(String part1, [ String part2, String part3, String part4, String part5, String part6, String part7, String part8 ]) String
Joins the given path parts into a single path using the current platform's separator. Example: [...]
joinAll(Iterable<String> parts) String
Joins the given path parts into a single path using the current platform's separator. Example: [...]
normalize(String path) String
Normalizes path, simplifying it by handling .., and ., and removing redundant path separators whenever possible. [...]
prettyUri(dynamic uri) String
Returns a terse, human-readable representation of uri. [...]
relative(String path, { String from }) String
Attempts to convert path to an equivalent relative path from the current directory. [...]
rootPrefix(String path) String
Returns the root of path, if it's absolute, or the empty string if it's relative. [...]
setExtension(String path, String extension) String
Returns path with the trailing extension set to extension. [...]
split(String path) List<String>
Splits path into its components using the current platform's separator. [...]
toUri(String path) Uri
Returns the URI that represents path. [...]
withoutExtension(String path) String
Removes a trailing extension from the last part of path. [...]

Exceptions / Errors

PathException
An exception class that's thrown when a path operation is unable to be computed accurately.
