Glimpse of iOS developers on flutter
If you’re an iOS Developer and want to try something new i.e if you are looking forward to build mobile applications with Flutter then you are absolutely on the right path. While building apps with Flutter your iOS Proficiency is highly valuable because flutter absolutely gambles on the mobile operating system for infinite configurations.
So now lets a have look at the topics those are most relevant to any iOS developers needs to build applications using Flutter.
- Views– UI in the Ios is mostly created using the view objects,which are then the instances of the UIView class which also can act as the container.
In Flutter unlike UIview, we have a widgets. Widgets do not map exactly to the Ios UIview but to the much extent we can use this terms as a way we declare and construct UI. Flutter’s widgets are lightweight, in part due to their immutability.
- Navigation- In iOS, to go along in between the UIview controllers, UINavigationController is used by the developers that accordingly manages the stack of view that auditors to display the same.
• Asynchronicity of code – Dart is basically a language which has a single-threaded execution model, with a way to run Dart code on an another thread, an event loop, and also an asynchronous programming. Without you spawn an Isolate, your Dart code will always runs in the main UI thread and that is consumed by an event loop. Whereas in case of Flutter, its event loop is comparable to the iOS main loop which basically means that the Looper that is attached to the main thread.
- Layouts- In iOS, to show the list either a UITableView or a UICollectionView is used by most of the developers. Whereas in Flutter, ListView is used by the developers for the implementation of the ListView. In iOS, these views have delegate methods for selecting the number of rows, the cell for each index, and also the size of the cells. Flutter also enables some extra features for the ListView is that Due to its inflexible widget pattern, you can pass a list of widgets to your ListView and you dont have to worry about anything Flutter takes care of making sure that scrolling is fast and smooth.
Some more different categories alike shall be discussed in the coming blogs and would be carried forward briefly so stay tuned.
