  1. Nice write up. I recently published a Flutter app and can attest Flutter’s ease of development and performance. I was skeptical about Flutter’s/Dart’s performance in particular because my app needed to process millions of data points. Flutter/Dart handles it well as long as this kind of heavy processing is pushed off the UI thread to an Isolate. Below is a video that shows off some of the app’s features.


  2. Thank you for this blog post. However, I would disagree with two arguments:

    1. Xamarin or React Native do not use a WebView. React Native uses a Javascript bridge to transpile React Native components to platform-specific components. And Xamarin does the same with Xamarin.Forms components but they use C# not Javascript. So there is no real big ,,performance advantage” compared to React Native and Xamarin.
    2. You can find more than 16000 packages for Dart and/or Flutter on pub.dev. More than 4000 packages have been made for Flutter.
