How to get started with Flutter?

Flutter is one of the latest tech which the developers are getting obsessed with.You will fall in love with flutter once you have learned the basics of it,just like me 😛.
So Let’s get started.

What is flutter actually?

Flutter is Google’s UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.If you’re building apps in limited time with a limited budget, Flutter is definitely worth trying. It’s just as good as it seems to be, and with each new update, Google devs add more even tools for cross-platform development.Using flutter will give you lot of advantages.

. One code for 2 platforms.
. Less testing.
. Faster apps.
. Designs which everyone loves.
. Faster code writing.
. It has the hot reload feature.

Flutter apps are written using Dart programming language. Flutter requires Flutter SDK. The IDEs to be used are:

Start coding your first Flutter App

Flutter renders the app in the form of Widgets.The central idea is that you build your UI out of widgets. Widgets describe what their view should look like given their current configuration and state.UI designing involves playing with the Widgets.Flutter is very easy to learn. Flutter can be learned by watching Videos, Reading Documentations and Blogs, and practicing example.
