It also debuted the Flutter Live which is Google’s first ever major standalone event for their Flutter app development SDK. Flutter is Google’s cross-platform application SDK which is no longer restricted to mobile. At the current state, Flutter can create native apps for Android and iOS, which also opens them to those two platforms and Chrome OS. Flutter team is working on two projects; one being the work-in-progress project called Flutter Desktop Embedding that aims to bring Windows, OS X, and Linux support for Flutter. The second is Hummingbird which is a radical new project to bring entire Flutter apps to the “modern, standards-based web”.

The company said that the Hummingbird project will also have interoperability with your web page’s JavaScript code. The company demonstrated that Flutter code running on the web will be exactly the same as what currently runs on mobile devices. With these two projects in hand, Google aims to make Flutter a ...
