Flutter vs React Native | Which One You Should Learn? | Edureka
React. Native by Facebook and flutter, by Google are too hot cross-platform, app development, technologies, creating, a buzz in today's technical, industry today. In this video we, will be comparing flutter with react native and I'll, be helping you choose when you should choose one over the other okay, so let's get started now, before I get started let, me just give you guys a brief overview, of the topics that will be touched upon by me today so. First of all I will be going through what is flutter and then, I will be giving a similar brief introduction, to react, native to so, that we have a general idea of what we are talking about if you. Guys have no idea as, to what flutter and react native is and would like to know more you could go ahead and check out my flutter tutorial, which you can easily find out on Eddie Records channel ok we, don't have such tutorial, for react native at the moment but we are working on that and that will be out soon too so, for now I'll be giving you guys a short, introduction to both technologies, and then moving, on we will be comparing the two technologies on various parameters now. These parameters, include stuff like performance, speed, which, already comes, into performance and the. Visualizations, the, types of confidence, that you get the developer creativity, that it might imbue, and a lot more so, there are 10 points that we will be comparing flutter and react native today and in, the real-world scenario, you can find more than these 10 points but, in my opinion these 10 points are the, pillars when it comes to choosing a certain, framework so, these, include stuff like the quality of documentation, now, if some framework, is not properly documented it. Becomes really hard to adapt to that framework ok so, let's, move on and start, off with this session today before I keep blabbering on and on ok, so. Our first topic of the day is what. Is flutter. Flattr is a cross-platform, mobile. Application. Development framework, that, is provided, to us by google, so, before. We go ahead let me just explain what that means, so, due to the growing popularity of mobile applications.
Point Of comparison is features, and API, so. When developing, cross-platform, mobile application. Support. For the native component, is key without, the support of native, components, our application, moon feed like a native app and it's very important, that the framework has an API to access the needs of modules without any pin so. Flutter framework, is bundled, with UI rendering, components, device, API access, navigation, testing. Stateful, management, and loads of libraries, the, rich set of components, remove the need to use third-party, libraries, if you, get the flutter framework, it means you will be having everything needed for developing, a mobile application, flutter. Also, has widgets for material design and Cupertino. That allows developers, to easily render, the UI on both iOS and Android platforms. On, the other hand the core react native framework, provides just the UI rendering, and device, access, API is in order. To access most of the native modules the ask native has to rely on third-party libraries. React. Native is too much dependent, on third-party libraries, and the full list of development, components, and official, ApS can be found on the documentation, so, from the analysis, we reach to the conclusion, that flutter. Is rich in development, API and UI components, while react native is too much dependent, on third-party libraries. So, as a developer I would give my point to flutter onion now. The next point that we are going to be discussing is developer, productivity so. Developer productivity is, key to building faster, apps and in, this regard it's very important, to be able to focus on application. Development without any kind of weight or distraction, so, on the side of flutter there is a hot reload feature and it's very easy to get started with, the demo application, however. As the complexity, of the application grows developers. Would need to learn a lot and adopt, the new flutter concepts, in addition. Dart is not a common language and there, is a lack of support for it in many IDE s and text editors on the.
However, You can do that using third-party, tools like fastly, in to deploy iOS, and Android applications. Written, in react, native the, process of using fastly, into ship react native apps is kind, of tricky but, it is a thing that you can do for yourself, this, means that react native has, to rely on third-party libraries. For build and release automation flutter. On the other hand has a strong command-line interface, we, can create a binary of the app by using the command-line tools and following, the instructions in the flutter documentation. For building and releasing, Android apps and iOS apps on, top of this flutter has officially, documented the, deployment, of process with flash lean in their official documentation, too so. Let's, analyze now. Flutter has a great build automation tooling, and can be used to deploy apps from the command line we, have native apps like support for a command line interface tools, that are officially supported for build automation so, flutter has got five points at this moment which means a react native has just scored the last point in order to tie the competition, the, last point of comparison is the, CI, CD, support or as, you might know it the continuous, integration and continuous development. Support so, DevOps has become quite the big thing today so continuous. Integration in containers delivery, practices. Are essential, for any application. In order to get continuous, feedback and avoid releasing buggy, code so. React native doesn't, have any official, documentation, on setting, up CI CD however. There are some articles, which describe, the CI CD for react, native applications. You, can find such articles on the web pretty commonly on, the other hand flutter has a section, on continuous, integration and, testing which includes, a link to external, sources however. Flutters. Rich command-line, interface, allows us to set up CI CD very easily and you, can read about them on blog post found on the web so. Flutter apps are easy, and painless to set up on continuous, integration and, continuous development, services. By using its strong CLI tools react. Native doesn't, provide any official, instructions, for CI CD practices, so. My, point goes to flutter again in this part so flutter. Wins six, points, and react, native has, four points. So in conclusion we can say react, native and flutter both, have their pros and cons but, flutter came out as a winner in this match some. Of the industry, experts have predicted that flutter is the future of the mobile application, development, considering.
The Comparison, we just did it's clear that flutter has entered, the cross-platform mobile development, race in a very strong manner let's, not predict the future but wait and watch I'll meet you guys in the next video until, then goodbye I hope.
