Flutter, An open-sourced software development kit (SDK) designed by Google for both Android and iOS platforms is creating quite a buzz around the stream of mobile app development. Flutter is designed to run in both Android and iOS platforms for building cross-platform apps. Flutter is probably the only framework as of now which is capable of generating apps for iOS, Android, Web as well as Desktop from a single code-base. A new avenue for creating cross-platform mobile applications got opened up with the arrival of this technology. Flutter is capable of customizing its UI with most changes getting applied instantly while the mobile app is still in use, a pretty incredible feat indeed.
Let’s look into some of the benefits associated with Flutter: a development environment which aids in creating native experiences for both Android and iOS from a single codebase. As mentioned, the following ones are some benefits:
- Flutter embedded with its own high-performing 2D rendered engine, SKia, within a thin layer of C, C++ code-wrapping.
- Based on unidirectional gate-flow architecture or a type of reactive programming, the app reacts according to the convenient new states.
- The framework of Flutter enriched with UI rendering components.
Flutter: What’s the big deal
The newest, brightest, and smartest SDK can flutter in fast executions with hot reloads. Cross-platform app technology gels well with Flutter as the framework is flexible for developers as well as businesses. For instance, getting a wider user base in a short period helps in gaining valuable customers for your business. Start-ups that rely heavily on releasing apps on cross-platforms benefit quite a bit by using Flutter. The short time needed for execution is indeed a bonus of using this SDK designed by Google. The single codebase of Flutter aids in considerably reducing the time taken for testing as well as quality assurance processes. Flutter mesmerizes us with low development cost, shorter development period and an insanely beautiful & agile application.
Flutter: An Overview
As is observed with Flutter, developers are still in awe about this application. Ease of development that aids with faster completion of projects make the Flutter a darling among various developers. Flutter has an inherent ability to create native app development fast. An easily extendable capability of code helps developers for creating an app, which works without a server. This SDK tool is evolving fast with Google updating it with cutting edge features in each new release.
Revolutionizing mobile app development via Flutter
Flutter can generate Android as well as an iOS app along with a web & desktop app from the same codebase. Flutter is quite different from other cross-platform toolkits as it offers an engine that has a portable runtime for developing or building the application. The framework gets built upon a new SKia graphics library that provides developers with different gadgets. Thus, Flutter offers much more flexibility than other toolkits. With Flutter, there are no requirements to write native-specific codes in Android and iOS during the mobile app development process. Flutter has a wide widget library that covers most of the components required for a beautiful mobile app. The major advantage of Flutter is that it provides an ideal platform for developers to create cross-platform apps with ease by not settling for any compromises in terms of performance, aesthetics or agility.
Widgets, Widgets and more Widgets
A discussion about Flutter will leave hanging if we are not talking about the widgets, because flutter is all about widgets. Widgets are the basic building blocks of your app. Developers have the freedom to create their widgets that fits well with the whole development process. A major addition to the widgets & Flutter framework is its seamless layout capability. The layout determines the quantity & quality of widgets in use. This also aids in an improved user experience.
Mobile app development is undergoing constant evolution. Flutter, the SDK, designed & released by Google is revolutionizing the way by which this process is carried out. The whole process of mobile app development has become simpler and more agile with the powerful features of this innovative framework. So, what are you waiting for? Be in awe with the possibilities provided by Flutter in mobile app development.
