Flutter is another tool for building native cross-platform applications based on programming languages such as C, C++ and Dart. Flutter was created by Google, with the first release coming out in 2017. Initially, Flutter allowed building android apps, supporting rendering at 120 frames per second. As of today, Flutter allows us to create apps for systems such as Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS.
Why is it worth learning Flutter?
Flutter is a modern framework for building cross-platform applications based on a single code. If you've been exposed to technologies such as Java, Swift, or React Native, you'll find that learning Flutter is easy and fun. What Flutter is well-liked for among developers is building native applications without tons of code. Like React Native, Flutter also supports "hot reload," which allows you to see in real time the changes made to your code. Flutter's documentation is also well-developed and, most importantly, transparent. Another plus from using this framework is the huge community, which is constantly growing. As of today, Flutter has earned 141 thousand stars on github, while React Native currently has 103 thousand.
