Building Your Own Google Docs Clone with Flutter

Appwrite has always been about providing developers with a core set of functionality needed to build any application with any stack. From database interactions to authentication, real-time updates, and more. Developers are only limited by their imagination on what they can build.

Gordon Hayes, from Fun with Flutter, has taken on the challenge of building a Google Docs clone, and better yet, he’s done it using Appwrite and Flutter!

Appwrite is an open-source Backend-As-A-Service that abstracts all the complexity of building a modern application by providing you with a set of REST APIs for your core backend needs. Appwrite takes the heavy lifting for developers and handles user authentication and authorization, databases, file storage, cloud functions, Webhooks, and much more!

Flutter is an open-source framework by Google for building beautiful, natively compiled, multi-platform applications from a single codebase.

Gordon walks you through the entire process from setting up the application, to adding routes, authentication, creating documents, real-time interactions, and more. And it's all open source for you to take and tinker with.

We love seeing projects like this one and others. We encourage you to build and show off your own projects during the DEV Hackathon with Appwrite!
