  // Tell the client where to find your Surreal instance on the network.
  final client = SurrealClient(url: '...');
  // Sign in and specify which namespace and database client should be referring to.
  await client.signIn({'user': 'root', 'pass': 'root'});
  await client.use('test', 'test');

  await client.create('article', {'title': 'SurrealDB for Dart'});
