Best IDEs for Flutter in 2022

Lewis Cianci I'm a passionate mobile-first developer, and I've been making apps with Flutter since it first released. I also use ASP.NET 5 for web. Given the chance, I'll talk to you for far too long about why I love Flutter so much.

  1. Android Studio should be on the 1st place. Its specifically made(or partnership with IntelliJ) for Mobile dev, including Flutter, by Google itself.

    VSCode is ok, but its a generic tool…

  2. Android Studio’s system requirements are not that high. If you’re still using a system from the 00’s and can’t run Android Studio smoothly, than you shouldn’t even try to start the emulator. It might catch on fire… If you do have a developer system, than the “high” requirements of Android Studio aren’t high at all.

  3. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable information. Very good article , explained each and every concept in detail with good examples.

  4. You can also have multiple vscode instances running on the same directory/project. A change in one instance of vscode is immediately detected in the other. It’s not the same as being able to undock your tabs, but with additional instances of vscode open on the same project, you can have a similar experience. I use three monitors with separate instances of vscode running on usually just two, while the third debugs.

  5. Super helpful comparison – I am biased towards VS code because it works extremely well for my Python workloads and I would not have to learn a new IDE/editor, but the lack of multitab (on multiple screens) is a practically relevant constraint that I have come across. Of course, most of the time one does not need that but when you do, it is surprising that this is not easily done.
