We chose Flutter cross-platform technology for implementing Mun Moi apps. We’ve used Flutter in other projects and found it to be a perfect technology choice for Moi because of the tight schedule and nature of the app features. We were pleased how efficient it was to develop a high-performance, beautiful application simultaneously for iOS and Android with Flutter.
Late 2020 when the mobile apps were getting more mature, we found ourselves in an interesting position. Google had just opened Flutter Web capabilities on beta channel, essentially making it possible to compile browser based web apps from the same Flutter code base. Mun Moi web app had been originally done with React and its development speed had decreased and the UI wasn’t on the same level as the mobile app.
We proposed to do the web app with Flutter as well.
Moi gave us the chance to do a prototype of the web app with Flutter and see how it works. Tom, who had taken the role of a lead developer, made the first working prototype in less than a day! We were very surprised how well the beta phase web capabilities worked in practice. It took another two months to make the web app work smoothly with different screen sizes and devices. Mun Moi web app was officially launched and its birth story was explained in March 2021 in a Flutter Web meetup, where Google also joined.
The demo of the web app can be used here.
