Todo List with Flutter


Running dart on the backend side is still experimental work. If you encounter any issues, please let us know by creating a new GitHub issue.


The source code for this example is public on the following GitHub repository.

This is an example of a todo application that uses:

  • Dart for the backend
  • Flutter for the frontend
  • MongoDB
  • genezio for developing and deploying the project


  1. Host a Mongo Database. Follow this tutorial to get a free tier database.
  2. Create a server/.env file and add the following environment variables:

Clone the example

  1. Run git clone
  2. Navigate to the folder cd ./genezio-examples/dart/todo-list


  1. Run dart pub get in the server/ folder to install the dependencies.
  2. Run flutter pub get in the client/ folder to install the dependencies.
  3. Create a .env file in the server/ folder and add MongoDB URI and the database table name.

Deploy the example in the genezio infrastructure

Run genezio deploy in the server/ folder that contains also the genezio.yaml file. This will deploy your code in the genezio infrastructure. The application will be available at the URL provided in the terminal.

Run the example locally

  1. Run genezio local in the server/ folder to start the local server.
  2. Start the Flutter app by going to the client/ folder and run flutter run -d chrome.
