Google's mobile UI framework 'Flutter' is now in beta

Google Flutter

That's because app developers will be able to easily generate a Fuchsia version of their software alongside whichever other versions they're already producing.

Flutter program manager Seth Ladd described to VentureBeat how the mobile-first UI toolkit works.

Developers can use the Flutter framework to speed up their work on native versions of their apps for Android and iOS.

This is basically the "video game" method of app development. Flutter has been used in production apps with millions of installs, apps built with Flutter have been featured in the App Store and Play Store (for example, Hamilton: "The Musical), and startups and agencies have been successful with Flutter". However, Google aimed to change all that when it introduced Flutter at Google I/O in 2017. The benefit of doing this is that the Flutter is fast.

It's 2018, how should you make an app?

Designing interfaces that support a myriad of devices, while targeting multiple platforms can be a nightmare for developers. There are preloaded UI widgets for Material Design and Cupertino design languages as well as support for Android Studio an Visual Studio Code. Flutter will change the scrolling behavior, buttons, sliders, dialog boxes, loading spinners, switches, tab bars, and more. So an app built with Flutter will provide full native capabilities on both platforms. "By shipping our own graphics engine, we offer consistent design as your designers envisioned".

Pak violates ceasefire in Jammu & Kashmir
Officials said that a special camp has been set up a few kilometres away from the affected villages to house the displaced people. Deputy Commissioner, Baramulla, Nasir Naqash confirmed hearing about the announcements from the Pakistan side.

Instead of wiring up to native Android and iOS components, Flutter paints every single pixel to the screen. While finished package apps get Ahead of Time (AoT) compiled with a lengthy compile time, for development there's a JiT (Just in Time) compiler that is super fast.

What's more, Flutter has a limited amount of C and C++ code.

The tools Flutter offers support Android Studio, Visual Studio Code, new refactoring to manage widget code, platform interop bringing the power of mobile platforms to the code, and a widget inspector helping devs to browse the widget tree. You can mix and match Flutter code with each platform's usual code, and there are plugins for Firebase. You can make apps for Android and iOS in C# using Microsoft's Xamarin, you can use HTML and JavaScript in Apache Cordova, or you can just use JavaScript with Facebook's React Native framework. I can not imagine a stronger endorsement of an SDK from Google than to use it to power your multibillion dollar ad-platform UI.

Flutter is an open-source technology, so it already has a package library. On Android, you can take a peek behind the scenes with the Flutter Gallery demo app.

The first beta of Flutter is available here right now, and interested developers can also contribute to the development of the project on GitHub here. While Google's new OS is called "Fuchsia", a better name for it might be "Flutter OS".
