Introducing Flutter, Google’s new Mobile UI Framework

Recently Google announced Flutter, their mobile UI framework that “helps developers craft high-quality native interfaces for both iOS and Android”.

Flutter targets the sweet spot of mobile development: performance and platform integrations of native mobile, with high-velocity development and multi-platform reach of portable UI toolkits.

Here’s a simple Hello World app:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(new MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
      title: 'Welcome to Flutter',
      home: new Scaffold(
        appBar: new AppBar(
          title: new Text('Welcome to Flutter'),
        ),
        body: new Center(
          child: new Text('Hello World'),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

Quite readable, but could use some JSX imho 😉
