Creating a Simple Application in Flutter
Flutter is an open-source cross-platform mobile application development SDK created by Google. It is highly user-friendly and builds high-quality mobile applications. The intention behind this article is to guide readers about the process of building an application through flutter by creating a simple Flutter App on Android Studio. To start creating a Flutter application we have to first create a flutter project and many other things, for that follow the steps mentioned below:
Step 1: Open the Android Studio IDE and select Start a new Flutter project.
Step 2: Select the Flutter Application as the project type. Then click Next.
Step 3: Verify the Flutter SDK path specifies the SDK’s location (select Install SDK… if the text field is blank).
Step 4: Enter a project name (for example, myapp). Then click Next.
Note: 1. Project name: flutter_app 2. Flutter SDK Path: <path-to-flutter-sdk> 3. Project Location: <path-to-project-folder> 4. Description: Flutter based simple application
Step 5: Click Finish and wait till Android Studio creates the project.
After successfully creating a file, we can edit the code of the application to show the output we want. Android Studio creates a fully working flutter application with minimal functionality. Let us check the structure of the application and then, change the code to do our task.
The structure of the application and its purpose are as follows?
We have to edit code in main.dart as mentioned in the above image. We can see that Android Studio has automatically generated most of the files for our flutter app.
Replace the dart code in the lib/main.dart file with the below code:
