Moor Gets A Drift

Flutter ORM Moor renamed to Drift

For mobile developers: My favorite ORM tool for the Flutter all-platform app toolkit recently got a new name and a new version. The package was originally called Moor because it was vaguely inspired by "Room", Google’s Android-specific ORM. However, it transpired that the term "moor" has derogatory connotations in some circles, so the author chose to pick a new name.

So if you develop mobile apps and use Flutter, as I believe you should, then do check out Drift at the author’s site (ignore the distracting purple background), or visit the overview page on pub.dev, or view the source code github.com/simolus3/drift.

As for that new version, you can find the complete revision history here.

Happy Drifting!
