32.1 Flutter App Creation
To begin a new app simply create a folder of the name that you want to
use for the app, and then ask flutter to create the
app skeleton. Here we create an app called
mkdir button cd button flutter create .
A skeleton and fully functional dart program is found in
lib/main.dart. The file
pubspec.yaml holds general information
about the app (name, description, publish_to, and version), the
development environment, dependencies (including dev_dependencies
required just for development), and Flutter configurations.
If your Android device is connected to the computer then you can build, install, and run the app on the device with run:
$ flutter run
Check what devices are available with:
$ flutter devices
To build and run the app on the linux device (
flutter run -d linux
If you see a Exception: No Linux desktop project configured. then the following should assist:
$ flutter create --platforms=windows,macos,linux .
