Quick Hit: Flutter to Support Desktop Applications

Steven NgDaily Debug BlogLeave a Comment

Google’s Flutter is an application development platform based on the Dart language that was originally designed to make it easier to build cross platform mobile applications.

A post on their Github wiki today announced the beginning of support for desktop applications (Mac/Windows/Linux) as an output target.

It will be interesting to see how this impacts Electron, given how the Dart language is so similar to Javascript. The implications are more long-term than short-term, given how the desktop library ecosystem for Flutter today is in its nascent stage of development.

I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on its progress.
