Discussing major Flutter updates, our podcast dives deep into the latest release. With 19 new widgets, background isolates, a new graphics engine preview, and more, we explore why these exciting updates haven't made it to production yet. Tune in with Evgeny, Mark, Mikhail, and Igor.
We studied in detail the issue of deploying private pub repositories, talked about whitelisting policies for third-party dependencies, compiled a list of all threat-prone development infrastructure nodes.
While everyone is studying with interest the first stable release of the framework this year (which we will definitely talk about a little later), we have thoroughly studied the Flutter development roadmap for 2022, dug up the issue tracker, and raised archives of stale bug reports.
What if we say that Flutter can write an application for one of the six supported platforms? Not surprisingly, this has already been known for so long. But, for sure, you will have many reasons not to do this, because ... has your main large project been written native for a long time?
For our next issue, we decided to choose a purely practical topic. We collected all the methods of data storage known to us: from writing to a file and key-value storages to full-fledged databases, and then, having examined in detail the advantages and disadvantages, we found a use for everyone.
When will the day come when every Flutter developer can call himself a full-fledged web developer? And will it come at all? We ask such questions regularly, because we so want to believe in a miracle.
