Welcome to the second edition of The Flutter Bi-Weekly! Thank you to everyone for their kind words and support during the launch, especially after the domain issues 🙈.
There are tons of fantastic announcements, conferences, and content to cover, so let’s jump right into it!
Blogs ✍️
Do you notice animation lag when launching your applications for the first time? Alex-Min details steps you can take to mitigate this using sksl shader caching.
The growth of ClickUp has been nothing short of impressive. With weekly releases and a growing mobile team, Simon Leier, takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of their CI-CD pipeline for Flutter 😎.
Building a UI clone is no easy task, and the thought of adding a backend to bring your clone to life can seem like a daunting task. Luckily for us, Wess Cope did just that, so we don’t have to!
Drawing curves is an art every developer struggles to perfect. Jahswill Essien takes us on the grand tour of curves in Flutter and explains the math behind your favorite curve methods.
For those interested in learning about custom paths and working with Flutter’s canvas, I highly recommend you check this out!
What does a design agency based in Canada and a Dev from Trinidad and Tobago have in common? We both use packages to get the job done!
The team at gskinner created a helpful blog post containing their favorite Flutter 📦 for us mortals to use in our next project 😉.
Videos 🎥
Do you need to position a widget of unknown size but are not sure where to begin? The Flutter team made this short just for you.
Mitch Koko takes us on a line-by-line walkthrough recreating a beautiful design in Flutter from scratch. This video is fantastic for developers new to the framework and looking for a video that’s more than your isolated tutorial.
Routing is something that every Flutter developer has struggled with at one point or another. Flutter –help gives us a method by method walkthrough of navigation including an overview of relatively complex topics like monitoring navigation states.
Nick Manning is back with a new full-stack Flutter course aimed at intermediate developers. If you are already familiar and comfortable with the Flutter basics like working with UIs and connecting to simple APIs, Nick’s course is a great next step in your Flutter development journey.
