News that got us talking

  • Until recently, creating a 2D table with efficient scrolling using regular Flutter widgets was quite difficult. Table structure, field size, scrolling on both axes, and effective table display are just a few of the many issues surrounding this topic. The Flutter team has provided a very interesting two_dimensional_scrollables package that solves some of these problems and makes creating a 2D table much easier.

  • Optimization is a topic we should care about in every Flutter project. The process of creating games is different from the process of creating a mobile application, but optimizations play the same key role. The new episode of the Observable<Flutter> series discusses the topic of optimizing the most basic loop in Flame, the game loop.

  • Since Flutter 3.16, the Impeler rendering engine is also available in preview for Android devices. Try it in your project.
