This week in Flutter #43

The results from the latest quarterly Flutter survey are out. They focused on:

  • Null safety, which is, as predicted, makes the majority of developers happy;
  • Ecosystem, which satisfactory rate is increasing;
  • Text editing, a subject the Flutter team is planning to improve, both in code and with examples;
  • Mobile development.

I am not surprised to see that Xcode (for iOS dev) and Gradle (for Android dev) are problematic to deal with.
That is also what I experienced while working with Flutter.

What is stopping you from using Flutter more effectively?
Let me know in the comment section.

A nice explanation of dependency injection in Flutter by Marcos Sevilla,

by Cleaner Flutter Vol. 10: State and UI which is a very
nice reading about state management. I suggest you have a look at the entire "Cleaner Flutter" series.
