Flutter's current user base is exploding in size. In the 2020 Stack Overflow developer survey, it placed third among the Most Loved Frameworks. Flutter didn't even exist three years ago! And now people are adopting it at an incredible rate.
Are you new to Flutter, perhaps adopting it for the first time for a project, and interested in what to use? Or have you been using Flutter for a while, but you are keen to know if there are easier ways for achieving the same result?
Either way, Codemagic has got you covered.
Introducing the Flutter library ebook
Codemagic's ebook “Flutter libraries we love” lets you fast-forward through more than 60 packages on pub.dev to find the most valuable ones to you. Here's a quick glance at some (but not all) of the topics:
- State management
- Text and fonts
- Location and connectivity
- Images and videos
Each topic features a package from that category, complete with a quote by the author or a user of this package, and also a comprehensive list of pros and cons, so you can make an informed decision about trying it out yourself. In-depth code samples show you how to use these packages in your projects super quickly.
But what effect can it have on your development?
The best guide on how to fast-track your development
For example, if you were to create a new application today, sooner or later you would likely need to store data. Whether you're saving favorites, user information, or anything like that, you just want to use the most stable and up-to-date solution for that.
How would you research that? Would you search pub.dev for ‘database’? If you did, you would get no less than 5,081 results, many of them not even relevant to your task.
With our ebook, you can easily review the section on data persistence, and review Hive as an option. You'd also start to understand how we can integrate Hive into our widget tree, and use the package from end to end.
We are chasing quality
Every package in the guide has been hand-picked as a favorite of many Flutter developers. The featured state management library (
flutter_bloc) has nearly five thousand stars on GitHub.
But all of the packages in the ebook are high-quality and used around the world by Flutter developers just like you.
