Constant updations in mobile app software development kit (SDK) are frequently coming to the sight in mobile app development. With Google releasing its 1st beta version of “Flutter” in February in the Mobile World Congress and recently the 3rd has come in the line showing amazing and promising work towards completing 1.0 release.
Google I/O 2018 showed tremendous potential with ‘Flutter Beta 3 Version’ for building elegant & native mobile user interface for iOS & Android. Google also introduced its official support for the team and simultaneously announced its new tooling partner.
Birth Of Flutter
Mobile app developers started facing trouble maintaining quality and productivity while building the native version of the same app for iOS & Android operating system. Keeping that in mind, Google I/O 2017 introduced ‘Flutter’- the earliest version of the toolkit.
Companies who couldn’t wait for the individual development or rather do not have the resources to invest in the native app development would rather opt for the cross-platform mobile app development services. However, the cross-platform app wasn’t that apt in providing the native-like user experience.
Meanwhile, Google was quick to analyze this pattern and found the need for a new SDK for mobile app development. Flutter came to light with its new SDK, opening the doors for developers to build apps with enhanced visuals and delivering native performance.
Google has patched up many components of SDK which are mentioned as below:
Flutter provides a development platform to developers wherein they can experiment & implement innovative features in an application without the need to rebuild it from the scratch. Flutter delivers high-end development experiences across platforms and devices with GPU accelerated renderer, quick compilers and lighting fast machine code.
Flutter collaborated with ‘Material Design’ team to take the UX/UI design elements to the next level. Flutter allows designers to use more interactive & flexible design layout through the use of UI widgets.
Let us now discuss the differentiating elements of Flutter beta 3 version w.r.t fundamentals, ecosystem, and tooling.
Few enhancements have been made to Material Design widgets as mentioned below:
Apart from the plugins such as Firebase Messaging, Firebase Core, Firebase Analytics and Real-time Database which were added last year, the Flutter beta 3 version includes Cloud Firestore, Performance Monitoring and Remote Config.
The UI inspector which is re-designed with ‘Just My Widgets’ feature eliminates the need for auto-generated widgets. Visual Studio & Android studio Code is now branded as the official backbone of development environment for Flutter.
Flutter can be enabled via Flutter extension of Visual Studio Marketplace. Set of refactorings is added in Android Studio and Visual Studio Code.
Google has definitely raised the bar for developers with the advanced version of Flutter to come up with a best mobile app development platform and more and more research is done to help to create the cutting-edge apps. Developers are looking forward to seeing how utilizing this SDK with the help of plugins and supporting tools to explore the true potential of mobile app design and development.
