31.1 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.
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.
To then build and run the app in debug mode:
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 .
