Print badges to the terminal. Yup, those nifty little thingies we use on readmes, but for CLI apps.


  • Easy to use
  • Inbuilt themes
  • Customizable

This is what it can do:

var failedBadge  = Badge(label: 'failed', message: '2', theme:;
var successBadge = Badge(label: 'success', message: '2').green();
var skippedBadge = Badge.yellow(label: 'skipped',  message: '2');


The above would output something similar to the terminal:


Usage is simple, import the package and start creating Badges!

import 'package:cli_badges/cli_badges.dart';

var failedBadge = Badge(label: 'failed', message: '2', theme:;


Some more examples:

You could create a donate badge:

var donateBadge = Badge.cyan(label: '❤️ donate', message: 'please?');


You can also only show the label:

var onlyLabel = Badge(
    label: '❤️ donate', 
    labelColorCode: 169

Example output is a mock, console output will vary slightly from terminal to terminal.

Badge Structure

A badge is conformed of a label and a message <label>:<message>. Each segment can be customized, by changing bg color, text color and style.


Themes are a way to store badge configuration for repeated use.

blue theme-blue cyan theme-cyan
green theme-green magenta theme-magenta
red theme-red yellow theme-yellow

You can also swap all themes, this means properties from label will be applied to message and vice versa.

Using themes

There are 3 main ways to create a themed badge:

1 - Passing in the theme directly to the Badge constructor:

    label: 'failed', 
    message: '2', 

2 - Using named constructors:
    label: 'failed', 
    message: '2', 

3 - Or by calling the predefined theme methods:
