Smartphones have become an integral part of life. The fact that everything is available at the fingertips with a click of a few buttons is the major reason behind its popularity. Most smartphones are heavily reliant on applications for its utility. This has led to a rapid increase in the development of such apps to the point that it is almost getting saturated. There are many platforms for doing so, with Vue native and flutter being two of them.
Although primarily both of them are app development platforms for Android and iOS, they do have certain points of dissimilarity between them. This article talks about both of them in detail and what are the differences that set them apart so that as a developer you can make an informed decision on which one to choose.
The fact that it has merely been 2 years since this platform has gathered grounds and it is regularly used by developers for app development speaks volumes about its functionality. Although it was initially started by SmallComfort, it later was taken over by GeekyAnts who are mainly responsible for making it into a cross-platform framework. The applications developed by this are pretty crisp and light.
Some of the defining features of Vue Native are-
This enables the data to be connected with the DOMs. When the values are kept differently, the rendering of it also happens immediately.
The components used for Vue.js can be reused to develop a more favorable User Interface.
This ensures that if there is any change in the data of the output it gets updated immediately, and the additional logic need not be written. Similarly, any changes made in the model is seen in the User Interface as well. This saves a lot of time in the process, and the rendering is also faster.
The code that is used by Vue Native is easy to grasp as it is read, and written simply. Since a single command can have multiple expressions, it becomes more efficient to work with. This is what is known as the syntactic sugar code.
The number of tools in the library of the Vue ecosystem with all the necessary tools needed to deal with problems faced by the developers. The solutions that are recommended are itself again so well-directed that you don’t have to spend much time looking for it. The number of plugins and the Graphic User Interface also makes the speed of Vue Native even better.
The type of in-depth documentation that is done, including the descriptions and steps can be useful for beginners as well as expert developers.
It is a mobile framework that works using a cross-platform approach and is run by Google. The kind of apps that can be built by Flutter is more modern in design and heavy-duty as well. It works effectively on Android as well as iOS and is one of the most flexible platforms that are available.
One of the main reasons why Flutter is preferred by SDK mobile cross-platform application developers is because of “hot reload”. It enables easy and quick experimentation in the interface and also helps in a quick fix of bugs. Thus, you will not lose out on any hardware and simulators irrespective of the functions that you perform.
The user interface has widgets, a smooth scrolling facility, good awareness of the platform to add to its advantages.
The coding under Flutter is of an open-source type. Thus, anyone who wants to develop an application using it can access it without any problem.
This feature competes with Syntactic Sugar of Vue Native and helps in the faster development of an application with experimentation and fixes.
This increases the credibility of the cross-platform manifolds.
If you want to develop heavy games and graphics in this, there is likely to be a lot of issues like Vue Native.
The documentation is not very well-organized and causes issues if data retrieval needs to be done.
There are similarities between Vue Native and Flutter. However, it is the stark differences that set it apart and influence the decision of which framework will be more suitable for you. Therefore, after reading this article, you will be better suited to make a good choice.
