  • What makes you develop plugin for Flutter?

    If you mean packages on pub.dev, many people develop something they need for Flutter and then upload it to pub.dev so others can benefit from it.

    Have you checked pub.dev? If it is not there then you might have to make your own and seeing the image, it isn't that hard too.
  • How to create a custom artifactory for flutter/dart ?
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/FlutterDev | 19 Nov 2021
    So, the problem is that of course we cannot host our packages on pub.dev and we already use JFrog as artifactory for our others artifacts, I read that the 'pub get' command can interrogate a custom host for retrieving packages but the endpoint has to conform to certain API, but where are these specification?

    This is something I've been casually researching, the most complete description of the API I've found is: https://github.com/dart-lang/pub/blob/master/doc/repository-spec-v2.md Given that it has been updated recently, I'm assuming this is the current standard that pub.dev operates on. I haven't probed the API to verify any of this, but it's a start!

    Yes, they do that in Dart's pub [1].

    They also have the concept of verified publishers[2], which is pretty neat (similar to Maven Central), and keep track of a score for each package (e.g. https://pub.dev/packages/darq/score) including up-to-date dependencies and result of static analysis.

    Dart is doing a lot of things right.

  • I Really Want to Learn Flutter BUT ..
    1 project | reddit.com/r/FlutterDev | 18 Nov 2021
    One of the advantages of React is IMO also one issue it has. It's more mature, so it has a LOT of plugins to solve every problem conceivable. That's good, but because it's older, many of those plugins are not as well maintained anymore. To this day I couldn't create a single React project that didn't have at least one deprecated library in it. Flutter on the other hand has fewer plugins comparatively, but it's now on a point that most problems have a plugin to solve them. Some very edgy cases will still require you to implement your own plugin though (which is easy to do). In terms of dependency management, I think they're on par. Dart has it's pub.dev wich is the central hub for plugins and React has the npm ecosystem.

    After developing the custom plugin, you can publish the custom plugin at pub.dev so that other developers can easily use it. However, before publishing, review the pubspec.yaml, README.md, CHANGELOG.md, and LICENSE files to ensure that the content is complete and correct.

    Although the good score for documentation on pub.dev, it doesn't cover every functions.He just put files on the git and we had to figure out how to do ourselves.
