So this is Google's React Native? I wonder how it compares.
@joshuapinter I wonder if it's more like Expo than RN. Still not sure.
@joshuapinter, no it doesn't work the same. There is no tools like expo for react native yet, but react native will just link React JavaScript code to a pseudo DOM made of Native components, where Flutter will user Dart Code compiled to machine language ARM, it will have best performances and the fact that all the UI is built on top of Skia, a Dart framework for ui, Flutter won't rely on native components but will render is own, it means that you'll have the exactly same rendering on both android ios, and soon Web and desktop apps ;) There is a very short video to explain what Flutter is if you're interested
Just like React Native has its cons, what applications can't be made using Flutter?
Just announced at MWC — Google's Flutter is now in beta.
@chrismessina Our consumer Flutter app is now live in both stores. Glad we made this choice overall. #TeamFlutter
