What is Flutter and Its Features?
Introduction to Flutter:
Developed and supported by Google, Flutter is a portable UI toolkit used to build an application’s user interface (UI) for multiple platforms with a single database.
It uses a reactive programming language called Dart, making the development simpler and swifter. In simple words, Flutter enables developers to use one programming language and one codebase to create two different apps, i.e. for iOS and Android.
It is an open-source framework and is free, which is why it is extensively used by developers and companies around the globe. It has powerful graphics along with animation libraries making it easier to build UI that has a smooth reaction to touch.
Features of Flutter:
i) Cross-platform development:
As discussed earlier, Flutter enables developers to use one programming language and write code once only. Then, it allows them to deploy it on multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, web, and desktop. It is less time-consuming as well as less costly as the need to write separate codebases for different platforms is eliminated.
ii) Native Performance:
Flutter has a rendering engine that helps to draw widgets, resulting in high-performance apps that feel native on each platform. Along with that, it ensures smooth animations and transitions as the Graphic Processing Units are also leveraged.
iii) Widget Library:
Flutter has a rich set of widgets. But what are widgets? They are the building blocks of Flutter apps, and there is a wide range of these widgets available. Every object built in Flutter application’s UI is a widget. This is one of the features which makes it easier to build complex and customizable UI components. These widgets can be used to create beautiful and responsive user interfaces.
Flutter is an open-source framework allowing users to use it free of cost. This is one of the reasons why Flutter has a large and active community of developers contributing to its development. It allows a wide range of activities like continuous improvement, bug fixing, and the availability of comprehensive libraries and packages.
v) Hot Reload:
Flutter’s hot reload feature allows developers to see the changes they make to the code immediately reflected in the app, without having to restart the app or lose the current state. This gives you more opportunities to experiment with the code and fix bugs on the go.
Flutter is a popular choice for mobile app development due to its features. Flutter developers can be hired if you need help with web, desktop, or mobile development. This is not that easy, as experienced Flutter developers in Nepal are difficult to find in the market.
