Flutter should have been a predecessor to React Native.

#Flutter should have been a predecessor to #React Native.

  • Flutter should have been a predecessor to React Native.Why I think Google should have launched Flutter, a couple years ago.There has been much activity in “Building apps for multiple platforms, using a single code base” camp, in recent years.
  • Apple, as we know it, would not have come forward, anyway, under any circumstance, to give developers a framework like React Native or Flutter but Google could have!
  • It should have always been like, mobile platforms, act more like web browsers, where they provide us, developers, with a standardized set of APIs, which we can use to write native cross platform apps.
  • Facebook, being the company, which has heavy apps, used by billions of people across the globe, faced a problem of maintaining two separate code bases and came up with a solution in the form of React Native.
  • Google owns Android, so in my opinion it was better positioned as compared to Facebook to launch a native cross-platform framework, as it could have easily hooked into its operating system.

There has been much activity in “Building apps for multiple platforms, using a single code base” camp, in recent years. Facebook is getting all the love from the developer community and a large…

Flutter vs React Native- What You Need To Know. – Dmytro Dvurechenskyi from openGeeksLab – Medium

#Flutter vs #ReactNative - What you need to know

  • This may sound like a giant leap for Flutter but it still has a long way to go in catching up with React Native.
  • At the moment, developers who are mentally bucketed with React Native are not even seriously considering Flutter.
  • The question most people ask when they get acquainted with Flutter for the first time is “Is it like React Native?”
  • Dart — OOP, it is rather verbose, but those who write in Java / C # will happily look towards Dart.Less writing in the settings for the start of the project manually, in contrast, to React Native.Just download Flutter from the git, do a “flutter doctor”, which will tell you what kind…
  • Finally, Flutter will have a great future if they can come up with a way to reduce code writing on Dart, replace any functionality class declaration, and JSX or XML as a description of the structure of the widgets.

Flutter is Google’s response to React Native and I’m sure you must have heard about it. After the announcement of Flutter, comparative discussions started making rounds on various mobile development…

We Rebuilt a React Native App with Flutter – GeekyAnts Blog

We Rebuilt a React Native App with Flutter  #mobile_app_development #google #react #flutter

  • Unlike Flutter’s Flat App, in React Native we had to use third-party libraries since React Native does not have a UI components library of its own.
  • React Native Elements, React Native Material Design and Shoutem are other similar UI libraries that are available to the user.
  • Flat App in Flutter performs better than the one in React Native because it has minimal interaction with the native code.
  • Here’s the Drawer from the Flutter Flat App alongwith its React Native equivalent called SideBar: – React Native Flat App’s SideBar ComponentFlutter FlatApp’s Drawer WidgetInkwell defines a rectangular area of a Material that responds to touch.
  • In React Native, we don’t need to create a whole new component to create this ripple effect.

Last year, we launched a React Native starter kit called Flat App. This kit contains a flat UI design along with Redux and NativeBase components for iOS and Android application. Flat App is basically…

Flutter makes it easy and fast to build beautiful mobile apps.

  • Easily compose your UI with Flutter’s modern reactive framework and rich set of platform, layout, and foundation widgets.
  • class CounterState extends State { int counter = 0; void increment() { // Tells the Flutter framework that state has changed, // so the framework can run build() and update the display.
  • // The Flutter framework has been optimized to make rerunning // build methods fast, so that you can just rebuild anything that // needs updating rather than having to individually change // instances of widgets.
  • Flutter lets you reuse your existing Java, Swift, and ObjC code, and access native features and SDKs on iOS and Android.
  • ; } setState(() { _batteryLevel = batteryLevel; }); } Learn how to use packages, or write platform channels, to access native code, APIs, and SDKs.


Refresh times so fast, you can “paint” your app to life
on hardware, emulators, and simulators.
