DART 2.6 2019-11-05 :

Static extension members (extension)

  • Dart 2.6 version is the ‘static extension methods preview’.
  • Declared static functions to be invoked like instance members on expressions of appropriate static types
  • Can create new methods for existing classes. Meaning, in place of writing a function which takes an instance of a class, developers will now be able to declare “extension” for any class that would contain their additional methods.

extension IntDoubler on int {
  int doubleMe() => this * 2;

void main() {
  for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    print('$i becomes ${i.doubleMe()}');

output :

0 * 0
1 * 2
2 * 4
3 * 6
4 * 8
5 * 10
6 * 12
7 * 14
8 * 16
9 * 18

Concat using extension

extension on String{
  String concat (String c) => this + c;

  String name = 'Flutter Developer ';


Check Email using extension

extension StringExtensions on String {
  bool get isValidEmail {
    final emailRegExp = RegExp(r"^[a-zA-Z0-9.][email protected][a-zA-Z0-9]+\.[a-zA-Z]+");
    return emailRegExp.hasMatch(this);

main() {
  bool isCheck = 'someString'.isValidEmail;
  print("Check the email " + isCheck.toString());


Inference is changed when using Null values in a FutureOr context. Namely, constraints of the forms similar to Null <: FutureOr now yield Null as the solution for T.

import 'dart:async';

void foo<T>(FutureOr<T> Function() f) {

main() {
  foo(() {});

Core libraries

Default values of parameters of abstract methods are no longer available via dart:mirrors.


Added optional parent parameter to TimelineTask constructor to allow for linking of asynchronous timeline events in the DevTools timeline view.

Dart VM

Added a new tool for AOT compiling Dart programs to native, self-contained executables.

Foreign Function Interface

  • Breaking change: The API now makes use of static extension members. Static extension members enable the dart:ffi API to be more precise with types, and provide convenient access to memory through extension getters and setters. The extension members on Pointer provide .value and .value = for accessing the value in native memory and [] and []= for – indexed access. The method asExternalTypedData has been replaced with asTypedList extension methods. And finally, Structs do no longer have a type argument and are accessed using the extension member .ref on Pointer. These changes makes the code using dart:ffi much more concise.
  • Breaking change: The memory management has been removed (Pointer.allocate and Pointer.free). Instead, memory management is available in package:ffi.
    Breaking change: Pointer.offsetBy was removed, use cast and elementAt instead.
  • Faster memory load and stores.
  • The dartanalyzer (commandline and IDEs) now reports dart:ffi static errors.
  • Callbacks are now supported in AOT (ahead-of-time) compiled code.
