Flutter is a free and open-source mobile application software development kit. Created by Google, it can be used to develop applications for Android and iOS while also serving as the main method of creating Google Fuchsia applications.
Flutter lets developers speed up the app development process and get the final product out to your client’s audience faster than ever before. Companies and clients around the world are starting to see the benefits that come with using Flutter.
Let’s explore each of them and find out why Flutter could be the answer you are looking for when developing your next app.
Developers that start using Flutter will notice some of its impressive abilities right from the start. As stated before, the newest version of Flutter lets developers create apps for both the Android and iOS systems. Now, developers can use just one codebase which makes their job easier.
The framework is written in Dart and incorporates design-specific widgets to create graphics, text, shapes, and animations. Simpler widgets can be combined together to perform more complex tasks.
Flutter’s most attractive feature so far for many developers is its support of hot reloading. Any changes to the source files are immediately incorporated, even to an application that is currently running. It doesn’t require a restart or any loss of state like live reloading, which would require navigating back to the page you were on before the live reload.
These new features make Flutter an appealing choice for cross-platform app development.
By supporting both iOS and Android, Flutter can save app developers time on project. Each of the widgets can be modified according to their respective operating system, making cross-platform development much easier.
Hot reloading is similarly used to speed up the time before launch. Because the app doesn’t have to entirely restart to see the changes, developers can tell how new code is going to appear right as it is written.
Using Flutter will improve development team’s efficiency.
All of the app’s design aspects comply fully with the standards of each operating system. For widgets, there are two sets match the language of the operating system it is being developed for – the Material Design widgets use Google’s design language and Cupertino widgets imitate Apple’s iOS design.
The widgets not only help make your UI more attractive, but they will also still look the same on older versions of Android and iOS.
