plural(2, 'дом', 'дома', 'домов'); // returns дома

plural(5, 'дом', 'дома', 'домов'); // returns домов

isolated_worker 0.1.0

The singleton isolated worker for all platforms. This is the way to isolate processes. On most platforms, it uses Flutter's Isolate, except on the web, since Isolate is not available, it uses Worker instead.

Basic example:

// if using compute function:

// compute(doSomeHeavyCalculation, 1000);

IsolatedWorker().run(doSomeHeavyCalculation, 1000);

timeago 3.1.0

timeago 3.1.0 

If you need fuzzy timestamps, you need to save this library.  It takes you only five minutes and will save you a lot of effort. All you have to do is load the locales you want, because this library only supports English and Spanish.

The easiest way to use this library via top-level function format(date):

final fifteenAgo = new Duration(minutes: 15));

print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo)); // 15 minutes ago

print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo, locale: 'en\_short')); // 15m

print(timeago.format(fifteenAgo, locale: 'es')); // hace 15 minutos

// You can create Credentials from private keys

Credentials fromHex = EthPrivateKey.fromHex("c87509a\[...\]dc0d3");

// Or generate a new key randomly

var rng = new;

Credentials random = EthPrivateKey.createRandom(random)(rng);
