This week in Flutter #114: Flutter conferences and updates


Last week, I linked “🫴🦋 Is this an emoji?” as a general programming article. A newsletter reader pointed out that there is a package on pub.dev, characters, that helps deal with “strings viewed as sequences of user-perceived characters”. Google published a blog post on this package and the subject in general.

There is also some news about Flutter conferences: Fluttercon videos and Flutter & Friends talks are out. There is some overlap between the two conferences, but there are some talks I am looking forward to, like “Flutter on the Server: Why & How it is Interesting”, “The 6-Step Flex Layout Algorithm, for Humans”, and “Building Voice-Enabled Flutter Apps: A Comprehensive Guide”.

Rive Animation for Flutter: A Beginner’s Guide to Creating Stunning Animations with Ease!

by Nikki Eke

I always wanted to play around with Rive. Never working on a project where it made sense did not really help. Animations often boost the overall user engagement and visual appeal of an app. Engaging animations can grab consumers' attention and motivate them to utilize the platform more frequently. Even when using more sophisticated animation tools and approaches, there is a learning curve for developers to master animation. You will discover in this post how to manage and create simple, beautiful Rive animations in your Flutter app.

Invariants: A Better Debugger?

by Marc Brooker

For reasoning about algorithms, data structures, and distributed systems, invariants are an effective tool. For any complicated system or method you create or use, it is worthwhile to consider a set of invariants. Additionally, it is worthwhile to design your implementation so that even global invariants may be quickly checked in a predictable and consistent manner.
