Google and Couchbase Lite

I’m looking for a way to use couchbase lite in flutter projects.
I’m wondering about creating a dedicated package using the possibility to use platform specific code to use couchbase mobile iOs and Android SDK in Dart.
Someone has yet started a similar project? I tried to google without any significat result.

I’m looking for too. Flutter is great and gets powerful with CB Lite. The only thing I’ve found so far is the link to

I’ve started developing a dedicated package and I’ll soon upload it to github. Are you interested in collaboration for this project?

I do not know if my programming skills are enough to help you, but I would like to support you where I can.

Thank you for your availability!! I’m implementing the very first functions, I’ll soon publish the package to Github and I’ll open it to contributors. Don’t worry about your skills, anyone has to learn new things constantly. If I could help you sometime, it will be an awesome experience for me too :+1: stay tuned for news

Do you use existing libraries or the REST API? I wonder how you save the Json documents on the device. just let me know if you have created a Github project. Then I will see how I can help :slight_smile:

In Flutter it’s possible to write platform-specific code to access Couchbase Mobile SDK for Android and iOs. Therefore, the database is managed directly from the SDK as if running in a native app.

The hardwork here is to write an “adapter” to command native SDK directly from Dart.
You can find the GitHub project at the following URL:
Sorry about lacking documentation, but I just tested that this approach is feasible.
Don’t wonder about asking any question, I’ll be glad to answer.

Thanks for the cool work. I will test it on weekend to give feedback.

By now, the library can create (in an Android device) a database locally and replicate a couchbase server database by connecting to a sync gateway. It can retrieve a Document by id and extract any “usual” field (no blob).
It’s also possible to save a new document in a database but passing a map instead of a document and it’s what I’ll implement first as soon as possible.
Queries are still missing, and I’m studying how to implement it (suggestions are welcome).
I plan to write iOs native code after defining Android implementation has a good approach for queries too, so that I haven’t to write and rewrite middleware code twice.
As usual, any suggestion or feebdack are appreciated.

Hy Stinger! I can’t find you in If you are still interested in this project, feel free to send me a message with your github username so that I could add you as a contributor.

Hi, I am interested in contributing to this project. Please let me know if you’re willing to add me as a contributor.

I can help with the query part implementation on Android, as I had already developed a library called the DataEngine (supports queries and model conversion) for the company I work for.

Hey Cyril,
That’s great news you are ready to jump on the project and contribute! I really look forward letting me inspire by any suggestion you’ll have!

I’d love to brainstorm ideas about paths to implement query in Flutter for Couchbase. You can post an issue on github or use the Gitter chat to contact me, as it is more convenient to you!

Best regards,

Hi, Felim. Thank you for inviting me to your project. I will open an issue on Github, it would be great to discuss about the project. Also, I’m very new to Flutter, so I guess it would be a great experience learning from you. :slight_smile:

I am also intrested to contribute to this library, I can appreciate if you can add me to a project too.
