Introduction to Flutter


Introduction to Flutter includes the origin of Flutter and the main concepts and definition of Flutter. So Let’s get started.

Origin of Flutter

About a decade ago iOS and Android platforms exploded as mobile operating systems and with time a term cross-platform development was coined across the mobile development community. The ability to write one app for both iOS and Android can save significant time and effort for your company and team.

There have been various tools released for cross-platform development over the years, including web-based tools such as Xamarin from Microsoft, and one of the latest frameworks React Native from Facebook. Each toolset has pros and cons and they have met with varying degrees of success in the mobile industry.

The latest framework to enter the cross-platform arena is Flutter from Google. Flutter features fast development cycles, fast UI rendering, unique UI design, and native app performance on both platforms.

Introduction to Flutter

We can say Flutter is a Mobile “Software Development Kit” , It is about empowering everyone to build beautiful mobile apps. Flutter makes it easier to create beautiful mobile apps in a simplified way

Flutter has also been used by Google and Alibaba. As a cross-platform framework, Flutter most closely resembles React Native, However, Flutter does not use a Javascript bridge, which can improve app startup times and overall performance. Flutter apps are written using the Dart programming language, also originally from Google and now an ECMA standard. Dart shares many of the same features as other modern languages such as Kotlin and Swift and can be trans-compiled into JavaScript code. Most of the engine is written in C++, with Android-specific parts written in Java, and iOS-specific parts written in Objective-C.

We will have more on Flutter in the upcoming posts.

We hope we were able to explain what is Flutter and why you should use it to develop the Mobile Applications.

Hope you liked it 🙂
