Welcome to Moor

Welcome to the moor documentation. This site shows you what moor can do and how to use it.

So what’s moor?

Moor is a reactive persistence library for Dart and Flutter applications. It’s built ontop of database libraries like sqflite or sql.js and provides additional featues, like

  • Type safety: Instead of writing sql queries manually and parsing the List<Map<String, dynamic>> that they return, moor turns rows into objects of your choice.
  • Stream queries: Moor let’s you “watch” your queries with zero additional effort. Any query can be turned into an auto-updating stream that emits new items when the underlying data changes.
  • Fluent queries: Moor generates a Dart api that you can use to write queries and automatically get their results. Keep an updated list of all users with select(users).watch(). That’s it! No sql to write, no rows to parse.
  • Typesafe sql: If you prefer to write sql, that’s fine! Moor has an sql parser and analyzer built in. It can parse your queries at compile time, figure out what columns they’re going to return and generate Dart code to represent your rows.
  • Migration utils: Moor makes writing migrations easier thanks to utility functions like .createAllTables(). You don’t need to manually write your CREATE TABLE statements and keep them updated.

And much more! Moor validates data before inserting it, so you can get helpful error messages instead of just an sql error code. Of course, it supports transactions. And DAOs. And efficient batched insert statements. The list goes on.
