These days, it requires critical choices on the selection of mobile technologies. We’ve been constantly testing and evaluating mobile technologies, and exploring their power to deliver functional digital experiences. It’s important to know that businesses that fail to deliver a smooth and simple experience to their users risk falling behind the competition.
In recent years, there has been the emergence of various mobile frameworks like React Native, Angular JS, and few others that make the production of digital experience easier, and recently, we have Flutter. Flutter is an improbably powerful framework that works closely with Google’s Material Design Specifications.
Let’s see few reasons why Flutter should be the development environment for your next big mobile project.
Everything is a widget in Flutter. Widgets are the building blocks of a Flutter app’s user interface. Wrapping one widget into another is easy. Unlike other frameworks that separate views, view controllers, and other properties, Flutter has a consistent, unified object model. This is a way to make sure your users have an experience no matter what platform they are running on.
Front-end & Back-end With Single Code
Flutter is amazing as it uses a single language that does the front-end and back-end job and uses a reactive framework. Unlike other Android frameworks. It doesn’t separate files for the front-end which are referred to by the back-end. Flutter uses Dart which has been built on a lot of the most popular features of other languages, this makes developers work with the ease of mind.
Flutter increases productivity, it lets developers change codes and see the results in real-time. All thanks to the Hot-Reload, a Flutter feature that takes a few seconds to update itself after you save a change. There’s no need to run another Gradle build – you can see the modifications as soon as you save. This reduces development time in 30-40% because the rebuild time that slows Android developers down takes a shorter time now.
Catalog of Open Source Packages
Flutter has a larger set of open source packages that helps developers create apps faster, with ease. These packages make complicated tasks easier. This is a feature of Flutter that has made it ever-growing as populations of developers keep contributing to growing this package library.
The value of Flutter is apparent and relatively high. This is because of many pains it is reducing, most of which are faced when using other Android frameworks, especially when dealing with limited time and budget to get the software product to market.
