Frequently asked questions about Flutter

What is Flutter?

Flutter is a Software Development Kit for multiplatform app development released in 2017. Initially created by Google, the project is now open-source and can be used to build apps that can run on Android, iOS, Google Fuchsia, Linux, macOS, Windows, and the web with the same codebase. It is written in C, C++, and Dart and runs in the Dart virtual machine. The SDK can be used in Linux, macOS, and Windows systems.

Because Flutter allows building apps that run natively on several platforms with the same code, it greatly simplifies app building for both developers and managers, as different teams for web, desktop, and mobile development are not needed.

Flutter SDK includes a mobile-first 2D rendering engine, a modern React-style framework, APIs for unit and integration tests, command-line tools, and more. It also contains a large set of widgets to be used as building blocks.

What is Flutter used for?

Flutter is mainly used to build mobile apps, as it is optimized for that, although web and desktop environments are also supported. Several well-known organizations use Flutter, including Google, Alibaba, eBay, Tencent, Groupon, The New York Times, and Nubank.

How long does it take to learn Flutter?

Flutter is easy to learn, with the basics taking only one or two weeks.

What are the prerequisites for learning Flutter?

Learning Flutter has few requirements. Basic programming knowledge is required, including object-oriented programming and imperative programming concepts.
