Flutter is out with its Release Preview 2 Version, and it finally stepped into the initial 1.0 release after. The very first question that arises is that how different it is in comparison to other platforms and how forward shall it fare into the future. If cross platform and hybrid platform app development is your concern than some intriguing questions that shall come into your mind that if it is comparable between Xamarin, React Native and Ionic.
Flutters object-oriented language Dart, uses Ahead-of-Time Compilation techniques and helps compile native code without the access of a bridge. This greatly contributes to the apps speed. Flutter uses the OS as a canvas to help build an interface and moves services such as gestures, rendering and animations into the framework which helps give complete control over the system.
Although Flutter is a full-fledged SDK it offers automated testing tools for primarily unit test, widget test and integration test. Let us check out the two most significant advantages any flutter app development company can provide.
Presence of Ready Made Custom Widgets
Flutter uses ready-made widgets and some developers have gone forward to say that Flutter itself a widget. The method in which this product helps creating user interface using building blocks. This basically creates effect in comparison to different objects, where Flutter has a consistent and unified object model which always comes to the advantage of a cross platform application development company.
Any object present in Flutter is a widget whether it is a padding or button or font. Widgets can be combined when it comes to creating layouts, whether it is button, padding or a font. Widgets can be helped to combine and create layouts which helps you choose widgets with the same tools that was done using Flutter. Widgets in Flutter are mostly organized in trees which although might come handy in for rendering but can result in complication of the entire structure.
Flutters own widget does give it a big advantage and Flutter already provides the kind of material design that helps accomplish Apple’s Cupertino looks. The UI customization part usually takes a good load of time with any other platform but with Flutter it is fairly simple.
Dart is suited for Java Developers
Dart is one of Javas modern object oriented language that reminds you of java or C++ with its syntax approach. It helps support strong and weak styles making it easy for beginners to pick up easy and quick. This basically comprises of
Both AOT and JIT Compilation Types
In app development, engineers are usually posed with the challenge of what their programming language compilation provides. The case of development does slow it a great deal though as programs compiled Ahead-of-Time usually run faster than they have been compiled before. The just in time compilation results in faster development cycles and rightfully contributes to the application startup speed as it analyzes the code before execution. Flutter takes the best of both worlds using JIT compilation during development and helps switching AOT build for apps usage.
Eliminates the Use of XML files
When it comes to Android development the work is separated into layout and code. The layout should be written in XML as views that are then referenced into the Java Code. Since everything in Flutter is a widget Dart helps address the problems by creating an inbuilt layout itself.
The application is optimized to run on any device because Dart smoothly compiles the native code directly into the code without using much of a bridge.
In response to the various queries and application orders we receive on behalf of Flutter, we truly recognize its essence and the impact it shall be creating in the applications that shall be operating tomorrow.
