flutter: Can't create moor_database.g.dart file

Issue

I am trying to learn moor_flutter so i added some dependencies into pupspec.yaml:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  moor_flutter: ^2.1.1
  provider: ^4.0.4
  flutter_slidable: ^0.5.4
  path_provider: ^1.6.5
  path: ^1.6.4

  # The following adds the Cupertino Icons font to your application.
  # Use with the CupertinoIcons class for iOS style icons.
  cupertino_icons: ^0.1.2

dev_dependencies:
  moor_generator: ^2.4.0
  build_runner: ^1.8.1
  flutter_test:
    sdk: flutter

After installing these dependencies I create a table class inside lib -> data -> moor_database.dart file:

import 'package:moor_flutter/moor_flutter.dart';
part 'moor_database.g.dart';

class Tasks extends Table {
  IntColumn get id =>
      integer().autoIncrement().call();
  TextColumn get name => text().withLength(min: 1, max: 50)();
  DateTimeColumn get dueDate => dateTime().nullable()();
  BoolColumn get completed => boolean().withDefault(Constant(false))();
}

@UseMoor(tables: [Tasks])
class AppDatabase extends _$AppDatabase {
  AppDatabase()
      : super(FlutterQueryExecutor.inDatabaseFolder(
            path: 'db.sqlite', logStatements: true));

  @override
  int get schemaVersion => 1;
}

I want to generate dart code by :

flutter packages pub run build_runner watch

But i got this error:

$ flutter packages pub run build_runner watch

After googleing i found this solution :
but after running flutter packages pub run build_runner build --delete-conflicting-outputs i got this error:

Solution

I asked a question in it’s official repo git and i got this answer :

It works if you replace this with integer().autoIncrement()(). The generator should emit a more helpful error message though, I’ll take a look at why that didn’t happen here.

I chnaged:

IntColumn get id =>integer().autoIncrement().call();

to :

IntColumn get id =>integer().autoIncrement()();

my problem gone.
