dart-reflect: Reflection shim for the Dart VM

Dart's mirror-based reflection APIs are not yet available. This library provides some basic operations which are available through the Dart native API.

Example

#import('lib/reflect.dart');
// Both equivalent to print("Hello, world!");
new Library('dart:core').method('print').call("Hello, world!");
new Library('dart:core').method('print').invoke(["Hello, world!"]);

// Equivalent to new Future.immediate("now");
new Library('dart:core').getClass('Future').constructor('immediate').call('now');

// Equivalent to [1,2,3].length;
new Instance.wrap([1,2,3]).method('get:length').call();

// Libraries are loaded if needed
new Library("plugins/$plugin.dart").method('initialize').call();

Documentation

Yes! Here's the dartdoc.

Building (Linux/Mac)

You'll need:

  • Dart SDK
  • g++ toolchain.

Either edit build.sh to point to the SDK, or set the environment variable DART_SDK.

Building the library

./build.sh

Generating documentation

./build.sh doc

Running tests

./build.sh test

Building (Windows)

You'll need:

  • Dart SDK
  • dart.lib, the Dart native API library. You can obtain this by compiling Dart from source or grab this version (last updated: 2012-04-24)
  • Visual C++ 2008. The free version works fine.

Building the library

Edit build.bat to specify where you extracted the Dart sources.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat
build
