slide 1: www.techindustan.com  Flutter vs React Native    Cross-platform app development has been a tedious task for any ​mobile app                         developer ​. When talking about hybrid apps the development goes with writing the                         code once and building apps with the same that runs smoothly on all of the platforms                                 without the need of any additional efforts. All of these are possible with the help of a                                   variety of frameworks that are available in the market- this includes the much talked                             about frameworks like React Native from the social media giant Facebook and Flutter                           from the Google.    React native is a js framework that is used for building native mobile apps. It uses the                                   react framework and offers a huge amount of inbuilt APIs and components. With React                             native you don’t build a mobile web app an HTML5 app or a hybrid app rather you are                                     building a real mobile app that is indistinguishable from an app that is built using                               Objective-C or Java. React Native uses the same fundamental UI building blocks as they                             are used in regular iOS and Android apps. You just put these strong building blocks                               together using JavaScript and React. slide 2: www.techindustan.com  Whereas Flutter allows developers to ​build apps for both the iOS and Android at the                               same time while using the same exact code. This may sound like a giant leap for Flutter                                   but there is still a long way to go in catching up with React Native.  Before start discussing Flutter vs React Native in detail let’s have a look at the basics of                                   Flutter and React Native.  Flutter  Flutter has been publicly available for less than three years and it only started gaining                               visibility in the development field around a year ago. It is a technology that has been                                 developed by Google that builds upon Dart and a portable C++ engine to implement                             reactive UI framework. Regardless of lesser love that Dart is receiving in the                           StackOverflow developer survey the early blog posts have been positive about the use                           of Flutter.  However staffing team won’t be that easy as the platform is so new and ​Dart is a niche                                     language ​ but it can easily be picked up by Kotlin and Java developers. Here upskilling                               an existing mobile team would be better for Android Developers as Flutter can easily                             integrate with IntelliJ as well as Android Studio. The situation becomes problematic for                           iOS developers as they need to get used to tooling and the language which could be a                                   bit more difficult.  In Flutter app development apart from the Bluetooth API and NFC payments most of                             the hardware and sensor APIs are supported but some of them are at their initial stages                                 of development. Still a lot of plugins already exist but some areas are more inflow than                                 others. For example inline video support and dynamic inline maps are still under                           development but full screen and static maps are supported.  Conclusively when it comes to testing it becomes very clear that Flutter is a new                               framework. Dart offers an excellent unit testing that can be utilized and flutter offers                             you a great unit testing framework that can be utilized. It allows you to run                               performance tests with its flutter_driver package.  React Native  The framework was released as an open source on GitHub in the year 2015 and is the                                   most popular of the two frameworks on Google and Stack Overflow. Despite being a                             semi-matured framework there is no clear roadmap just a dedicated page on GitHub                           that lists placeholders. Staffing in React Native is comparatively easier but the React slide 3: www.techindustan.com  Native app developers aren’t an ordinary thing finding native mobile app developers                         who have knowledge of React and JavaScript as well could result in a tall order.  React Native supports the majority of Android and iOS native APIs. Due to its huge                               developer community even if there is no official API available there are plenty of                             third-party APIs are available to choose one from. In terms of hardware specific APIs                             React Native lacks a number of them again third-party libraries are also available.                           React Native doesn’t have impressive APIs for Bluetooth NFC camera sensors and                         more. The React Native app developers have all JavaScript frameworks that are                         available for testing at a unit level. However when it comes to UI/automation testing                             the situation becomes quite complex.  Related:  ● Let’s Talk About React  ● Some basic tips for JavaScript Beginners  Flutter vs React Native Performance  Let’s have a look at the insights based on Flutter vs React Native Performance in which                                 Flutter is better than React Native and vice versa  Things in which Flutter is better than React Native  ● The Stateful Widget in Flutter that provides a place that helps to store and                             change data dynamically that would be similar to react and react native.  ● The recommended IDEs for Flutter app development include Android Studio and                       IntelliJ Idea. These are easy and awesome to work with for a developer who has                               already worked on Android.  ● Although React Native has Hot Reload it is not as fast as Flutter.  ● With React Native the situation becomes difficult as it comes to the selection of                             navigator because of no navigator in React.  Native is 100 perfect. On the other hand the built-in navigator in Flutter is amazing.                               You can easily create a new route without connecting anything. Dissimilar to React                           Native where you can import navigation components every time. slide 4: www.techindustan.com  Things React Native is better at than Flutter  ● Styles aren’t separated in Flutter you would need to give inline styling while                           creating each component.  ● Flutter is known for Animation and UI customization however it is                       comparatively more difficult to implement animations in flutter than in React                       Native.  ● Flutter doesn’t have enough resources to fix things up as till date it hasn’t                             received much attention from StackOverflow. This makes it harder for the                       developers to quickly build applications.  ● Modularity in Flutter never exists. It is almost impossible to inherit one                         component into another in Flutter app development.  Related:  Hybrid App vs Native App  Future of Flutter  Flutter would be better if they bring up a separate place for styling and a construct for                                   reusing code. Until then you can try solving the issues open over ​GitHub ​.    Source: ​ ​https://bit.ly/2IxoWxT     Information Presented By:-   tecHindustan  contacttechindustan.com  tecHindustan.com
