Users of Dependabot version updates can now proactively update their dependencies for Flutter or Dart projects which use the
pub package manager.
version: 2 enable-beta-ecosystems: true updates: - package-ecosystem: "pub" directory: "/" schedule: interval: "weekly"
package-ecosystem: "pub" and
enable-beta-ecosystems: true flags.
pub is in beta, and thus, we are aware of some limitations. For example, security updates are not supported in this release but will be in the future.
Other known limitations:
- No support for updating git-dependencies
- If the version found is ignored (by dependabot config) no update will happen (even if, an earlier version could be used)
- No support for private package repositories
Special thanks to the Dart team for collaborating with us to make this happen.
