What is Prisma Client Dart?

Prisma Client Dart is a Dart ORM that is published on pub.dev with the package name orm. It uses Prisma Engine as the data access layer and tries to keep the API as consistent as possible with Prisma JS/TS Client.

Why Prisma Client Dart package name is orm?

Because the package name prisma has been occupied, and the package has not been widely used and the author is no longer updating it. When we released Prisma Dart Client, we contacted the author of the prisma package, but did not get a reply.
