Very Nice Flutter Review at hackernoon.com

Maybe the best “why you should care about Flutter” articles so far.  The historical context is excellent.  Although it is all worth a read, the following extract is a key highlight:

“Flutter has a new architecture that includes widgets that look and feel good, are fast, and are customizable and extensible. That’s right, Flutter does not use the OEM widgets (or DOM WebViews), it provides its own widgets.

Flutter raises the widgets and renderer from the platform into the app, which allows them to be customizable and extensible. All that Flutter requires of the platform is a canvas in which to render the widgets so they can appear on the device screen, and access to events (touches, timers, etc.) and services (location, camera, etc.).”
