Next Level Building Native App’s Using Flutter-texol-blog

Google introduced a new free open source mobile application development framework called Flutter and which is an easy tool to build native apps with Flutter. Its’ quickly help develop IOS and Android Apps in a single code base. Flutter helps for easy development like faster reloading UI in less in a second. Rich set of custom widgets. Flutter Apps follows platform conversation and interface such as scrolling, Navigation, Icons and more. Flutter can access platform API’s and services. It’s using DART language and it is a statically typed application similar to Typescript / JavaScript. Flutter is of four characteristics. That they are Beautiful, Fast, Productivity.

1. Beautiful

2. Fast

Flutter is fast. It’s powered by the same 2D graphics engine which enables hardware accelerator graphics. Flutter code compiled. It’s not interpreted. It’s doesn’t go through the virtual machine when your application finished it’s compiled the native machine code.

3. Productive

Flutter’s First User Survey of 2019

As per the user survey from 1,961 users for the last 3 month, 91% of the respondents were somewhat or very satisfied with Flutter.

Who’s using Flutter?

React Native Vs Flutter

React Native is a project started by Facebook internally that they open-sourced in 2015. On the other side is Flutter, a project started by Google. Both of these technologies help app developers build cross-platform apps faster by using a single programming language. React Native uses JavaScript to build cross-platform apps. JavaScript is a very popular language in the web community at the moment. It is commonly used with React and other popular JavaScript frameworks. Stability is one of the important parts of the mobile app. When Flutter release the alpha version it left one step back and it not recommended for large projects. But React Native have large community support and it’s a stable framework. So in the stability React Native is the winner.

Flutter uses Dart programming language which was introduced by Google in 2011 and is rarely used by developers. Dart syntax is easy to understand for JavaScript or Java developers as it supports most of the object-oriented concepts.
