Hi,

Today I will represent you a little bit about Flutter. Also in few next posts, I hope I will cover how Flutter works and how to install Flutter.

  • First, let’s talk about what is flutter?

Flutter is an open-source, Google’s UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.

That means developers need to write code once and apply it to all platforms – Android, iOS, web, macOS, and even Wear OS.

  • OS (operating system) Alt Text (source: flutter.dev)

Flutter isn’t the only cross-platform framework, you also can use React Native, Cordova… - they also allow developers to write code only once.

The first version of Flutter was known as “Sky” and ran on the Android OS (operating system). Flutter was created by Google and at the end of February 2018, Google introduced the first Flutter version.
Today, the 9/22/2020 available version is 1.20.4 released 9/15/2020.

  • 6 Benefits of Flutter
  1. Open-source,
  2. Cross-platform (you only need to write code once),
  3. Hot-reload feature,
  4. Native-like performance
  5. The Potential to Go beyond mobile, and
  6. Speed

Also, Flutter has some disadvantages for example relatively small expertise, dart's low popularity...

Thank You,
I hope you like it
