Google's mobile UI framework 'Flutter' is now in beta

Google releases Flutter SDK beta, for better cross-platform app development

Google Flutter Framework Beta Version Available for iOS And Android Developers

Google has pulled the wraps off the first beta release of its Flutter mobile UI framework at MWC 2018.

Apps made using Flutter.

Since Flutter's alpha release a year ago, Google has built support for additional features Ladd said.

When the folks behind "Hamilton" wanted to build an app for the smash musical quickly a year ago, they turned to a little-known mobile software framework called Flutter that Google quietly previewed just a few months earlier to help developers create user interfaces more easily. Get started today at flutter.io to build handsome native apps in record time.

Obviously for the user on foot the publication of Flutter does not suppose any substantial improvement, but beware because the arrival of this SDK is very important since it will be available for more developers and with more and more options, so this means that soon we will see more applications that take advantage of it And in addition, it supposes the base of the future landing of Fuchsia. It features high-velocity development with features including stateful Hot Reload, new reactive framework, rich widget set, and integrated tooling. There's an IntelliJ IDE for Flutter, just like Google has with Android Studio.

Top-quality experiences across ecosystems and devices with powered by GPU-accelerated renderer native ARM code runtime, and platform interoperability. Flutter has come quite a ways since then, however it is still focusing heavily on responsiveness and ease of development, with the goal of enabling the eventual development of apps designed for 120 Hz displays from the ground up. He said there have already been millions of installations of the Flutter alpha version, and several hundred apps built with Flutter have been published. On the roadmap are the ability to embed Flutter into an existing app, additional support for Google's Firebase mobile app development platform, an inline web view and inline maps, and a smaller core engine. To follow the latest progress on Flutter development, visit Google's developer blog. Over 1,000 apps including Facebook Connect and GraphQL already work with Flutter.

What's more, Flutter has a limited amount of C and C++ code.

Google said Flutter has already been put to use internally - it's used for the company's vital AdWords advertising technology - and externally, though its FAQ says the project is stabilizing and still lacks many features suitable for broad deployment, including accessibility.

In case all of these do not drive the sales pitch home, maybe a couple of apps that have been featured in both App Store and Play Store will do the trick: Hamilton: The Musical, Hookle (a social media management platform) and many more.

New beta builds are expected to arrive about once every four weeks.
