    Build cross-platform Native Progressive Web Apps for iOS, Android, and the Web ⚡️

    As for compiling natively, I wish more devs knew about Capacitor and Tauri. Capacitor is Ionic’s spiritual successor to Cordova, and Tauri is a Rust-based framework. Both run as native apps, and use the device’s native webview renderer for any html/css/js, and are thus framework-agnostic. This solution also makes my stack more modular and allows me to integrate js pkgs/Rust/wasm as I need. I’d love to see a performance comparison between Flutter and SvelteKit+Capacitor and Tauri. I suspect that Flutter’s past advantages of portability and performance aren’t as far ahead as they used to be. Or they just don’t compel me as much.

  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

  • Svelte

    Cybernetically enhanced web apps

    I haven’t migrated an app away from Flutter, but I have moved away from using it. It’s been fun to learn about, but then I found Svelte and SvelteKit. JS/TS are simply more versatile. Flutter requires things to be done the Google way, from the Dart lang, to managing every pixel, to the ecosystem of Flutter-specific packages needing to be created when more mature solutions already exist in the JS ecosystem. For example, it doesn’t make sense to wait on things like great web performance or a 3D library to arrive on Flutter when Svelte excels in this area and can integrate with libs like Three.js. Or things like SSR, SEO, or >60 fps. Flutter just doesn’t seem to be the proper tool for web. There’s also the ongoing war between state management solutions, while Svelte makes it simple and elegant with stores, the $: operator, and the bind: directive.

  • SvelteKit

    The fastest way to build Svelte apps (by sveltejs)

    Bring data to life with SVG, Canvas and HTML. :bar_chart::chart_with_upwards_trend::tada:

    Lastly, I also hear that D3 is great for data viz.
