[Interest] vs. Flutter

I've not come across any myself, and have only built a few small things
with it a bit for now.

Initial reactions was that it is *leagues* ahead of Qt with regards to
developer experience. You're not locked to an IDE, like with QtCreator, and
the ui live updates across device, simulators, emulators etc. when you
write changes. No need to build and .apk and wait for a build+deploy.

There's no JS involved. It's Dart all the way. It doesn't even ship with a
web runtime afaik.

Achitecturally it's similar to Qt, in that they've build a custom renderer
on top of Skia, so the whole scene is basically just OpenGL, which makes it
really fast.

Component wise, their UI library offers bother Cupertino and Material
design out of the box, and from initial impressions, looks to be closer to
the original design guidelines than Qt Quick Controls for. e.g. Material.

I haven't tried it out myself yet, but you should be able to reach into
native world by using platform channels:


It's seems like it's quite a ways worse than with Qt though, so there's at
least that.
