Hello guys, From the past 4 weeks I was working on a flutter project not dedicatedly but in my free time. The purpose of this project is to develop the ultimate SpaceX experience in a variety of platforms. A single experience, from a single codebase.

About Spacexopedia

Spacexopedia has been developed to provide information about space projects of giant space company SpaceX. App is a light-weight, fast and easy to use. It fetches the data from the open-source r/SpaceX REST API, which can be found here.

This Spacexopedia has been built using the Flutter framework, which allows to build an app for mobile, desktop & web, from a single codebase.

App features:-

  • Past & upcoming launches: flight no., launch date, location, vehicle type,rocket used etc.
  • Tesla Roadster : orbit, speed & distance of the Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster.
  • Rockets catalog: read about all rockets, capsules & ships SpaceX has developed over the years.
  • Dragon capsule catalog: type, diameter, height, weight, capacity, payload.
  • Core & capsules details: more information about each core & capsules launched

After the completion of the first phase, it seemed to be in a stable state so I have decided to publish it on the play store.
