A Lightweight, Simple Plugin That Allows You to intercept Request

http_interceptor 

This is a plugin that lets you intercept the different requests and responses from Dart's http package. You can use to add headers, modify query params, or print a log of the response.

Quick Reference

Already using http_interceptor? Check out the 1.0.0 migration guide for quick reference on the changes made and how to migrate your code.

Installation

Include the package with the latest version available in your pubspec.yaml.

http_interceptor: <latest>

Features

  • 🚦 Intercept & change unstreamed requests and responses.
  • ✨ Retrying requests when an error occurs or when the response does not match the desired (useful for handling custom error responses).
  • 👓 GET requests with separated parameters.
  • ⚡️ Standard bodyBytes on ResponseData to encode or decode in the desired format.
  • 🙌🏼 Array parameters on requests.
  • 🖋 Supports self-signed certificates (except on Flutter Web).
  • 🍦 Compatible with vanilla Dart projects or Flutter projects.
  • 🎉 Null-safety.
  • ⏲ Timeout configuration with duration and timeout functions.

Usage

import 'package:http_interceptor/http_interceptor.dart';

Building your own interceptor

In order to implement http_interceptor you need to implement the InterceptorContract and create your own interceptor. This abstract class has two methods: interceptRequest, which triggers before the http request is called; and interceptResponse, which triggers after the request is called, it has a response attached to it which the corresponding to said request. You could use this to do logging, adding headers, error handling, or many other cool stuff. It is important to note that after you proccess the request/response objects you need to return them so that http can continue the execute.

  • Logging with interceptor:
class LoggingInterceptor implements InterceptorContract {
  @override
  Future<BaseRequest> interceptRequest({required BaseRequest request}) async {
    print(request.toString());
    return request;
  }

  @override
  Future<BaseResponse> interceptResponse({required BaseResponse response}) async {
      print(response.toString());
      return response;
  }

}
  • Changing headers with interceptor:
class WeatherApiInterceptor implements InterceptorContract {
  @override
  Future<BaseRequest> interceptRequest({required BaseRequest request}) async {
    try {
      request.url.queryParameters['appid'] = OPEN_WEATHER_API_KEY;
      request.url.queryParameters['units'] = 'metric';
      request.headers[HttpHeaders.contentTypeHeader] = "application/json";
    } catch (e) {
      print(e);
    }
    return request;
  }

  @override
  Future<BaseResponse> interceptResponse({required BaseResponse response}) async => response;
}
  • You can also react to and modify specific types of requests and responses, such as StreamedRequest,StreamedResponse, or MultipartRequest :
class MultipartRequestInterceptor implements InterceptorContract {
  @override
  Future<BaseRequest> interceptRequest({required BaseRequest request}) async {
    if(request is MultipartRequest){
      request.fields['app_version'] = await PackageInfo.fromPlatform().version;
    }
    return request;
  }

  @override
  Future<BaseResponse> interceptResponse({required BaseResponse response}) async {
    if(response is StreamedResponse){
      response.stream.asBroadcastStream().listen((data){
        print(data);
      });
    }
    return response;
  }
}

Using your interceptor

Now that you actually have your interceptor implemented, now you need to use it. There are two general ways in which you can use them: by using the InterceptedHttp to do separate connections for different requests or using a InterceptedClient for keeping a connection alive while making the different http calls. The ideal place to use them is in the service/provider class or the repository class (if you are not using services or providers); if you don't know about the repository pattern you can just google it and you'll know what I'm talking about. 😉

Using interceptors with Client

Normally, this approach is taken because of its ability to be tested and mocked.

Here is an example with a repository using the InterceptedClient class.

class WeatherRepository {
  Client client = InterceptedClient.build(interceptors: [
      WeatherApiInterceptor(),
  ]);

  Future<Map<String, dynamic>> fetchCityWeather(int id) async {
    var parsedWeather;
    try {
      final response =
          await client.get("$baseUrl/weather".toUri(), params: {'id': "$id"});
      if (response.statusCode == 200) {
        parsedWeather = json.decode(response.body);
      } else {
        throw Exception("Error while fetching. \n ${response.body}");
      }
    } catch (e) {
      print(e);
    }
    return parsedWeather;
  }

}

Using interceptors without Client

This is mostly the straight forward approach for a one-and-only call that you might need intercepted.

Here is an example with a repository using the InterceptedHttp class.

class WeatherRepository {

    Future<Map<String, dynamic>> fetchCityWeather(int id) async {
    var parsedWeather;
    try {
      final http = InterceptedHttp.build(interceptors: [
          WeatherApiInterceptor(),
      ]);
      final response =
          await http.get("$baseUrl/weather".toUri(), params: {'id': "$id"});
      if (response.statusCode == 200) {
        parsedWeather = json.decode(response.body);
      } else {
        return Future.error(
          "Error while fetching.",
          StackTrace.fromString("${response.body}"),
        );
      }
    } on SocketException {
      return Future.error('No Internet connection 😑');
    } on FormatException {
      return Future.error('Bad response format 👎');
    } on Exception {
      return Future.error('Unexpected error 😢');
    }

    return parsedWeather;
  }

}

Retrying requests

Sometimes you need to retry a request due to different circumstances, an expired token is a really good example. Here's how you could potentially implement an expired token retry policy with http_interceptor.

class ExpiredTokenRetryPolicy extends RetryPolicy {
  @override
  Future<bool> shouldAttemptRetryOnResponse(BaseResponse response) async {
    if (response.statusCode == 401) {
      // Perform your token refresh here.

      return true;
    }

    return false;
  }
}

You can also set the maximum amount of retry attempts with maxRetryAttempts property or override the shouldAttemptRetryOnException if you want to retry the request after it failed with an exception.

Using self signed certificates

You can achieve support for self-signed certificates by providing InterceptedHttp or InterceptedClient with the client parameter when using the build method on either of those, it should look something like this:

InterceptedClient

Client client = InterceptedClient.build(
  interceptors: [
    WeatherApiInterceptor(),
  ],
  client: IOClient(
    HttpClient()
      ..badCertificateCallback = badCertificateCallback
      ..findProxy = findProxy,
  );
);

InterceptedHttp

final http = InterceptedHttp.build(
  interceptors: [
    WeatherApiInterceptor(),
  ],
  client: IOClient(
    HttpClient()
      ..badCertificateCallback = badCertificateCallback
      ..findProxy = findProxy,
  );
);

Note: It is important to know that since both HttpClient and IOClient are part of dart:io package, this will not be a feature that you can perform on Flutter Web (due to BrowserClient and browser limitations).

Use this package as a library

Depend on it

Run this command:

With Dart:

 $ dart pub add http_interceptor

With Flutter:

 $ flutter pub add http_interceptor

This will add a line like this to your package's pubspec.yaml (and run an implicit dart pub get):

dependencies:
  http_interceptor: ^1.0.2

Alternatively, your editor might support dart pub get or flutter pub get. Check the docs for your editor to learn more.

Import it

Now in your Dart code, you can use:

import 'package:http_interceptor/http_interceptor.dart';

example/lib/main.dart

import 'dart:convert';
import 'dart:io';

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:http_interceptor/http_interceptor.dart';
import 'package:shared_preferences/shared_preferences.dart';
import 'credentials.dart'; // If you are going to run this example you need to replace the key.
import 'cities.dart'; // This is just a List of Maps that contains the suggested cities.

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: HomeScreen(),

A Lightweight, Simple Plugin That Allows You to intercept Request

How To Customize WordPress Plugins? (4 Easy Ways To Do)

This is image title
WordPress needs no introduction. It has been in the world for quite a long time. And up till now, it has given a tough fight to leading web development technology. The main reason behind its remarkable success is, it is highly customizable and also SEO-friendly. Other benefits include open-source technology, security, user-friendliness, and the thousands of free plugins it offers.

Talking of WordPress plugins, are a piece of software that enables you to add more features to the website. They are easy to integrate into your website and don’t hamper the performance of the site. WordPress, as a leading technology, has to offer many out-of-the-box plugins.

However, not always the WordPress would be able to meet your all needs. Hence you have to customize the WordPress plugin to provide you the functionality you wished. WordPress Plugins are easy to install and customize. You don’t have to build the solution from scratch and that’s one of the reasons why small and medium-sized businesses love it. It doesn’t need a hefty investment or the hiring of an in-house development team. You can use the core functionality of the plugin and expand it as your like.

In this blog, we would be talking in-depth about plugins and how to customize WordPress plugins to improve the functionality of your web applications.

What Is The Working Of The WordPress Plugins?

Developing your own plugin requires you to have some knowledge of the way they work. It ensures the better functioning of the customized plugins and avoids any mistakes that can hamper the experience on your site.

1. Hooks

Plugins operate primarily using hooks. As a hook attaches you to something, the same way a feature or functionality is hooked to your website. The piece of code interacts with the other components present on the website. There are two types of hooks: a. Action and b. Filter.

A. Action

If you want something to happen at a particular time, you need to use a WordPress “action” hook. With actions, you can add, change and improve the functionality of your plugin. It allows you to attach a new action that can be triggered by your users on the website.

There are several predefined actions available on WordPress, custom WordPress plugin development also allows you to develop your own action. This way you can make your plugin function as your want. It also allows you to set values for which the hook function. The add_ action function will then connect that function to a specific action.

B. Filters

They are the type of hooks that are accepted to a single variable or a series of variables. It sends them back after they have modified it. It allows you to change the content displayed to the user.

You can add the filter on your website with the apply_filter function, then you can define the filter under the function. To add a filter hook on the website, you have to add the $tag (the filter name) and $value (the filtered value or variable), this allows the hook to work. Also, you can add extra function values under $var.

Once you have made your filter, you can execute it with the add_filter function. This will activate your filter and would work when a specific function is triggered. You can also manipulate the variable and return it.

2. Shortcodes

Shortcodes are a good way to create and display the custom functionality of your website to visitors. They are client-side bits of code. They can be placed in the posts and pages like in the menu and widgets, etc.

There are many plugins that use shortcodes. By creating your very own shortcode, you too can customize the WordPress plugin. You can create your own shortcode with the add_shortcode function. The name of the shortcode that you use would be the first variable and the second variable would be the output of it when it is triggered. The output can be – attributes, content, and name.

3. Widgets

Other than the hooks and shortcodes, you can use the widgets to add functionality to the site. WordPress Widgets are a good way to create a widget by extending the WP_Widget class. They render a user-friendly experience, as they have an object-oriented design approach and the functions and values are stored in a single entity.

How To Customize WordPress Plugins?

There are various methods to customize the WordPress plugins. Depending on your need, and the degree of customization you wish to make in the plugin, choose the right option for you. Also, don’t forget to keep in mind that it requires a little bit of technical knowledge too. So find an expert WordPress plugin development company in case you lack the knowledge to do it by yourself.

1. Hire A Plugin Developer3

One of the best ways to customize a WordPress plugin is by hiring a plugin developer. There are many plugin developers listed in the WordPress directory. You can contact them and collaborate with world-class WordPress developers. It is quite easy to find a WordPress plugin developer.

Since it is not much work and doesn’t pay well or for the long term a lot of developers would be unwilling to collaborate but, you will eventually find people.

2. Creating A Supporting Plugin

If you are looking for added functionality in an already existing plugin go for this option. It is a cheap way to meet your needs and creating a supporting plugin takes very little time as it has very limited needs. Furthermore, you can extend a plugin to a current feature set without altering its base code.

However, to do so, you have to hire a WordPress developer as it also requires some technical knowledge.

3. Use Custom Hooks

Use the WordPress hooks to integrate some other feature into an existing plugin. You can add an action or a filter as per your need and improve the functionality of the website.

If the plugin you want to customize has the hook, you don’t have to do much to customize it. You can write your own plugin that works with these hooks. This way you don’t have to build a WordPress plugin right from scratch. If the hook is not present in the plugin code, you can contact a WordPress developer or write the code yourself. It may take some time, but it works.

Once the hook is added, you just have to manually patch each one upon the release of the new plugin update.

4. Override Callbacks

The last way to customize WordPress plugins is by override callbacks. You can alter the core functionality of the WordPress plugin with this method. You can completely change the way it functions with your website. It is a way to completely transform the plugin. By adding your own custom callbacks, you can create the exact functionality you desire.

We suggest you go for a web developer proficient in WordPress as this requires a good amount of technical knowledge and the working of a plugin.
