Vlad, do you have a source saying QML was an inspiration for Flutter?
I've recently talked with someone on the Flutter team, that literally
didn't even know QtQuick existed. At first I was sort of surprised, but
then again not really. I've talked with a lot of app developers, where Qt
isn't even on their radar.
