Flutter or React Native? - Comparison of the two technologies

Two different languages

Until recently, React Native, based on JavaScript, was the undisputed market leader. The library for mobile development has filled the gap with true native applications and also benefits from the commonalities with ReactJS, which is currently considered the most popular web development tool in the world.

However, Facebook's mobile development library " React " has been heavily challenged by Google's Flutter, a framework based on Dart, the programming language of today's largest search tool.

Both React Native and Flutter are excellent cross-platform mobile development toolkits, both have their strengths and come with their own challenges that, overall, have nothing in common.

A slight advantage for Flutter

However, when it comes to specific application examples, Flutter has a slight advantage when a application requires extensive communication with the underlying hardware of a mobile device. Flutter is also a more complete toolkit, providing just about everything one needs to develop a application mobile. The extensive component library, out-of-the-box widgets, and hardware design principles mean that development is faster and simpler, with limited room for rough UX slips.

More flexibility with React Native

In contrast, React Native relies heavily on third-party libraries and applications are built from smaller components. This allows for greater flexibility and creative leeway, especially with regard toUX and layout, but it also means more risk of errors and a greater time investment.

It is therefore not possible to answer from a technological point of view which of the two solutions is more suitable for a application. It depends rather on the domain ofapplication and the complexity of theUX.

At NetDevices we master both technologies as well as no-code.
