How to install Flutter, Configure with Android Studio, and Create a Simple App.

System requirements

To install and run Flutter, your development environment must meet these minimum requirements:
Operating System: Windows 7 SP1 or later (64-bit)
Disk Space: 400 Mb (Except disk space of IDE/tools)
Tools: Flutter depends on these tools being available in your environment.
Windows PowerShell
Git for Windows

Get the Flutter SDK

Step 1- Go to URL and download the latest Flutter SDK.
Step 2- Unzip the zip file and place the contained flutter in the installation location for the Flutter SDK (For example, C:/src/flutter; do not install FLutter in a directory like C:/Program Files/ that requires relevant privileges).
Step 3- Update your path
From the Start search bar, enter ‘env’ and select “Edit environment variables for your account”.
Under User variable check an entry called Path.
Under Path click on the new tab and append the full path to flutter/bin. (Your full path should be like C:/src/flutter/bin).

Android Setup

Install Android Studio

Download and install Android Studio.
Start Android Studio, and go through the ‘Android Studio Setup Wizard’. This installs the latest Android SDK, Android SDK Command-line Tools, and Android SDK Build-Tools, which are required by Flutter when developing for Android.

Install the Flutter and Dart plugins

Open Android Studio.
Click Configure>Plugins.
Select the Fluter plugin and click install.
Click yes when prompted to install the Dart plugin.
Restart Android Studio.

Create a Hello World app

Open Android Studio.
Select Start a new Flutter project.
Select the Flutter application and click next.
Enter Project name
Setup Flutter SDK path and Project location.
Click next.
Enter your Company Domain(com.example.helloapp) and click finish.
Run applications on your phone or emulator.

Thank You, I hope it will help You.
