Is Flutter The Future of Mobile Application Development?

“Is Flutter the future of mobile application development?” is one of the hot topics of discussion in the tech world. The need for a cross-platform framework was always in demand and many other technologies have come to help. But those were limited and were not compatible with the need and eventually faded from the tech world. Now it is flutter that has satisfied many and people see as the future. Nowadays mobile applications are not just limited to smartphones. So a technology that satisfies just Android and iOS appl development won’t last long in the market. Here is why this language is in demand. The new portable UI kit is not just for mobile applications, but for web applications and embedded screens. This blog aims to help you understand what is flutter and why it is widely accepted. WHAT IS FLUTTER It is an open-source development platform developed by Google. It uses the Dart programming language and is a leading app development framework for cross-platform application development. Google’s power-packed SDK gives flutter an upper hand and many developers have already switched to flutter for app development. With the flutter, you can build apps easily, and with a limited time frame. It was initially used for prototyping the apps but now it has already covered the market with premium brands like Alibaba and google ads, developing applications with flutter. FEATURES OF FLUTTER DEVELOPMENT Hot Reload: It a feature that gives quick outputs to changes that are made in real-time. This is especially useful when a developer is trying a new design change or bug fix. The changes are made visible within seconds of time so that developers can fix bugs in a lesser time span. These features boost the creativity level of designers and developers and thus improved quality is guaranteed. Cross-Platform Development: Flutter eliminates the need for multiple frameworks for multiple platforms. Android or iOS applications can be developed using flutter and provides a native-like experience to users. Thus it saves money, time, and energy. Integration and Scalability of applications: The frameworks are easy to access and integrate. So if you are doing a rework on an existing application to expand or if you are building a quick wireframe then flutter can serve both purposes. Performance: In comparison with the native applications flutter guarantees optimal performance. With the help of Dart, C, C++ users get higher experience. Easy setup: Flutter contains a large number of ready to use widgets which helps right from setting up to building application. And also the flutter documentation is simple and thus it is easy to understand One time coding: You can develop applications in both Android and iOS platforms using flutter. Therefore you don’t need to maintain separate files for both. Along with this one-time coding feature you have other benefits like code reuse and minimal coding. BASED ON DART Flutter enables you to develop applications on multiple platforms, but how is it happening? Dart helps Flutter. Dart is the programming language that can work on all these platforms and provides faster development experience. Google is planning to develop a new operating system ‘Fuchsia’ and it is considered to be the next android. Dart is now hidden under Fuchsia and when it is on the market, Dart programmers will be on-demand soon. Due to the similarities with other languages, you can learn Dart easily and it combines features of other languages making it powerful. Dart has faster compilation abilities and thus hot reloading exists in the flutter. It has rich tooling support making the app development faster and productive. CONCLUSION I believe that possibilities of the flutter are practically endless and we can develop applications with ease and deliver at the earliest.
