Flutter is the default choice for future mobile and desktop apps created by Canonical.
Google’s open-source and cross-platform UI making framework continues to grow in popularity, particularly among web devs looking for an easy “in” to mobile and desktop app development.
Flutter is underpinned by the Dart programming language, but the desktop SDK (which is now available as a stable release) means there’s plenty of support for crafting pseudo-native software that integrates with the underlying desktop OS.
Or at least, that’s the theory.
Canonical is a vocal supporter of Flutter. It worked with Google to bring the Flutter SDK to Linux desktops via the Snap Store, and plans to create a new Ubuntu installer using the tech.
Now it’s confirmed it’s going all in!
