Can flutter be an alternative to react-native ?

Skip to 18:39 for some of the cool stuff - hot reload, debug render, stateful hot reload (this is really cool) etc.

I think it might have a shot, the big problem that I can see there is that one have to learn dart, that is something rather annoying.

You can compile Dart into JS, and there's a neat little package out on Pub that provides interops to javascript stuff.

Well, flutter is really nice and Dart is fantastic. For now it seems to have a good future.
