Nowadays, an English word that generally implies the "act of fluttering (of wings)" is a massively trending technology. So, what new technology has taken the whole Internet by storm?
Well, it is a UI toolkit from Google that allows developers using this technology to develop or build 'N' types of compiled native apps or applications that are "beautiful" towards any target, such as the web. Or Mobile? Or a desktop? Or All.
So, what is this new technology called? Well, you guessed it right; it's known as "Flutter." Per their official site, https://flutter.dev, it is described as "Quote Flutter is Google's UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively compiled mobile, web, and desktop applications from a single codebase. End Quote". Flutter is developed using a combination of C++ and Dart.
The major components of this technology comprise the Dart Platform, Flutter Engine, Foundation Library, and Specific Design Widgets. To understand why Flutter is currently the most in-demand cross-platform framework for developing mobile apps,
One Rule—My Rule: You need an app. You need an app right now. Fine, but what should it do? Well, the main difference between your app (or the one you develop for someone) and others is the specific requirements that set your app apart from any that may (or may not) be similar to yours. It is the main advantage of using Flutter over other development tools currently available. You can use your specific set of business rules (or logic) for your app without worrying over the specificities needed to be overseen when developing an application using native development methodology.
UI Focus towards the User of the App: The most crucial part of any application with which any end-user will interact is the User Interface (UI). Using Flutter means we can focus on enhancing the end-user experience instead of concentrating on bits and pieces of UI design associated with native development.
Avoiding UI-related bugs or breakdowns of functionality: Most of the current cross-development tools (there are quite a few so far) perform a form of translation of the UI developed or designed by the app developer or designer. So, this translation means at least a minor difference in how the application UI looks and feels. In several cases, there is also a difference in the experience of specified functionality.
Live Feedback: Flutter has a "hot reload" feature, which enables the developer to gauge the changes made by the developer in real time immediately. A must-needed feature for which Flutter provides built-in support from its core This feature ensures that the development part proceeds in line with the design part of the application and that the same is done.
Controls are now more than just simple controls. In older development technologies, developers used specific rules (either already existing or custom-built or tailored) to implement the application's design. However, with inspiration from "React," Flutter provides "Widgets" with a modern design framework. These "Widgets" are more than just standard controls; they are widgets for various functionalities with a generalized look and feel, some immediately usable, others requiring customizations—that is, a sizeable, ready-to-use library of widgets designed to
And Much More...
The bottom line is that your app in Flutter also makes the hearts of its users flutter.
