What is Flutter? The Game Changer in Application Development

What is Flutter?

Why should you try Flutter?

If you haven’t tried Flutter, it’s worth a couple of hours on a weekend. Maybe you don’t have a use for it, but I believe that we have successfully pushed development forward. Cross-platform correctly gets a terrible rap. I think that we have tried to right many of those sins and make multi-platform development a lot better.”

How Flutter works

Writing your first Flutter app

// starter_app.dart import 'package:flutter/material.dart'; void main() { runApp( MaterialApp( title: 'Flutter Demo', theme: ThemeData( primarySwatch: Colors._teal_, visualDensity: VisualDensity._adaptivePlatformDensity_, ), home: Scaffold( appBar: AppBar( title: Text('Starter App'), ), body: Center( child: Text('Hello World'), ), ), ), ); }

Benefits of using Flutter

// Showing infinite list final items = List.generate(10000, (i) => "Item $i"); ListView.builder( itemCount: items.length, itemBuilder: (context, index) { return ListTile( title: Text('${items[index]}'), ); }, )
