Flutter & Dart – How it works 

Dart is a new open source programming language developed by Google that is built for the applications of the post DOM (Document Object Model) era. It supports sound null safety, type safety and several tooling such as incremental recompilation making it best suited for modern enterprise applications. Dart allows developers to build rich, secure and high performance applications for all six major platforms from a single codebase. 

Dart’s compiler technology lets you run code in different ways:

  • Native platform: For apps targeting mobile and desktop devices, Dart includes both a Dart VM with Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation and an Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compiler for producing machine code.
  • Web platform: For apps targeting the web, Dart includes both a development time compiler (dartdevc) and a production time compiler (dart2js). Both compilers translate Dart into JavaScript.

So, if you’re looking to build digital products faster and smarter, FlutterFlow is the perfect platform for marketers and designers looking to build applications faster while imbibing new digital experiences.
