Flutter Test

Basic support for flutter test has been added. If you launch a file (by pressing F5 with no launch config, or by setting program in your launch config) that is inside the test folder of a Flutter project, the script will be run using flutter test. Output will appear in the Debug Console pane. All debugging functionality (breakpoints, etc.) should work as normal.

Projects in Sub-Folders

When projects are found in sub-folders you will now be prompted to mark them as Workspace folders. This will allow Dart Code to better understand which folders are projects when detecting which debugger to run when pressing F5.

Projects in Sub-Folders

Note: VS Code will duplicate these workspace folders in the top level of explorer - please +1 this VS Code issue to allow this to be configurable.

Silent Extension Reloads

Many operations in Dart Code require re-initialising the extension. This was previously done by prompting the user to "Reload Window" which resulted in a visible disruption and all extensions re-initialising. In this version Dart Code silently re-initialises itself meaning no more prompts for actions such as changing SDKs. Since this operation still terminates and restarts the Dart analysis server it may take a few moments to re-analyze your project.

SDK Picker for Flutter

The Flutter version number now appears on the status bar and allows quickly switching SDKs by clicking onit (this functionality already existed for Dart). Set the dart.flutterSdkPaths setting to an array of SDK folders (or folders containing SDKs) to use this. Note: This does not change your Flutter channel but relies on having multiple versions of the SDK in different folders (you can do this without multiple clones by using git worktree as shown in our Travis script).

Upstream Issues

Some feature requests and fixes require new features and fixes in upstream projects like VS Code and LSP which use counts of 👍s on those issues to help gauge demand. The Dart-Code website now lists some of the most significant upstream issues with a description of the feature/fix they would enable. Please consider reviewing this list and adding your 👍 to any GitHub issues relevant to features you’d like to see!
