Flutter is an open source SDK platform developed and managed by Google. It enables the developers to create modern feature-rich Android and iOS apps. Launched on Github in August 2016, Flutter although new in the market hasn’t failed to impress the app developers.
Flutter is by considered one of the best cross-browser platforms,
giving stiff competition to the already established React Native. It
offers some of the most promising features to the developers making it
an all-time favorite.
Many even quote Flutter app development is the future. Given the
popularity it has garnered over this short period of time, it would be
interesting to explore the reasons behind it.
Easy as a pie
It will not be unfair to call Flutter easy to learn and master.
Flutter, which is based on the Dart language does not require any
expertise as a prerequisite and is very easy to quickly adapt. It is one
of the main reasons for the developers being drawn to its simplicity
and efficiency. With more lean, clear and precise documentation, Flutter
has managed to impress the developers to learn and use Dart.
Flutter is power packed with the performance which makes it very
popular among the developers’ tribe. While performance has always been
the point of concern for the hybrid framework, Flutter goes an extra
mile to ensure optimal performance. Given the fact, that it is built on
C++, C, Skia and Dart, it does not need an interpreter to deliver a
swift app that is always on the go.
A Plethora of Plugins to choose from
Flutter doesn’t fail to impress with its tons of plugins which makes
the development easier. You can simply add the features without having
the code written from scratch. This saves a lot of time and resources
making the app development faster and fun.
With all the widgets, tools, plugins and packages
that the Flutter offers, you can customize them as per the
requirements. When you have so much to choose from, app development
becomes easy and exciting.
Faster Development with Hot Reload
Flutter offers you with a faster development courtesy Hot Reload.
This feature helps you to experiment with ease, making UIs, working on
features and resolving bugs in the code. Hot Reload allows you to
witness the changes immediately on your device, once you add a new
It injects the updated source code files into the Dart Virtual
Machine, rebuilding the widget tree, that makes it quick to see the
Apart from Hot Reload, other features such as customizable widgets
and short app development cycles also contribute to making Flutter
Single code for Two platforms
Managing different codes for different platforms could be a tough
job, given the fact that you need to maintain consistency. Well, that
shall not be the case with Flutter, where you need to just write the
code once, and you are good to go!
This saves a lot of time and resources that go into the development and testing of two separate codes. But, you need to test the end products on the different platforms separately in this case too.
Debugging is not a sore anymore
With Dart Analyzer tool you can easily debug your code by using flutter analyze, where finding possible mistakes become a lot easier. This tool uses type annotations that are present in the code for tracking the issues, making debugging less painful. Using Flutter enabled IDE/editor, comes as a plus point for debugging.
