    1 project | | 2 Dec 2021
    Hello I'm trying to recreate an old custom checkbox that uses RenderToggleable. This custom checkbox has a BoxConstraints when it's rendered. I was wondering where I could add this in a custom checkbox that's very similar to flutter's checkbox ? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  • Community fork of Cake wallet?
    1 project | | 1 Dec 2021
    In the case of Flutter, one of the most prevalent such frameworks (and used by Cake Wallet if I remember correctly) Google fights for more than a full year already to get battery drain under control that occurs when ... can you believe it ... nothing else happens except that a cursor is blinking. See e.g. here.
  • WASM and PWA vs Flutter? Which would you place your bets on?
    1 project | | 30 Nov 2021
    Flutter is a framework by Google that provides a number of compilation targets, web technologies being one of them. It's basically a common abstraction layer (Dart) that devs can utilize for supporting multiple platforms at once. It's very likely that Flutter will be able to compile an app to an HTML/CSS/JS/WASM artifact in the near future, if it doesn't have that capability already. (Obviously it can already compile to HTML/CSS/JS.)

    But for those who don't, Flutter is an open source framework that we can use to build a natively compiled, cross-platform application with a single codebase. It's written in a brandnew language called dart.

    Ah! I am brand new to learning flutter and was trying to change the Flutter channel with the command:

    flutter channel master

    And it kept failing with:


    git: remote: Internal Server Error.

    git: remote:

    git: fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 500

    Switching channels failed with error code 128.


    thought I was doing something wrong and spent some time troubleshooting.

    The camera is a common source of pain in native development, especially in Android, where the possible hardware and software range is too broad. camera package does a great job of abstracting over all these discrepancies and the somewhat cumbersome native Camera API, but there are some problems. For example, we ran into this issue and had to downgrade to version 0.8.1+7 for now.

    Here is an issue that explains it better, if you look at the last comments the devs explain that it wasn't possible to cherry-pick de changes to stable 2.5 branch.
