this blog, you will get an in-depth comparison of our two-favorite
cross-platform frameworks Flutter vs React Native. React Native is
a project started by Facebook internally that they open-sourced in 2015. On the
other side is Flutter, a
project started by Google which they have been heavily promoting since I/O 2017. Both of
these technologies help app developers build cross-platform apps faster by
using a single programming language. Here is a simple comparison between both
cross-platform apps. Thanks to React Native, web developers can build mobile
developers, it’s easy to adopt the React Native framework.
Flutter uses Dart programming
language which is easy to get started with, as there is a great and
easy-to-follow documentation available on the official Dart site. But it’s
rarely used and less known in the developer community.
React Native architecture heavily relies on JS
the Flux architecture from Facebook. In
modules, which results in poor performance.
Flutter uses the Dart framework which has most
of the components inbuilt so it’s bigger in size and often does not require the
bridge to communicate with the native modules. The Dart framework uses Skia C++
engine which has all the protocols, compositions and channels.
React Native provides the essential elements to
develop an app, namely, UI rendering capabilities and device API access. For
other functionalities, including accessing native modules, React relies on
third-party libraries, which is usually less convenient than having all the
tools you need in one package.
Flutter offers numerous libraries, navigation,
testing tools, and an extensive set of widgets alongside the standard device
API access and basic UI rendering to create visually appealing interfaces with
minimal effort. The functionality that the framework comes bundled with is
usually sufficient to handle all necessary tasks and fulfill the design
Both Flutter and React Native are incredible frameworks that can help you build a cross-platform application faster and easier than with the majority of native tools.
