Flutter vs Vue Native: What are the differences?
Developers describe Flutter as "Cross-platform mobile framework from Google". Flutter is a mobile app SDK to help developers and designers build modern mobile apps for iOS and Android. On the other hand, Vue Native is detailed as "Build cross platform native mobile apps using Vue.js". Vue Native is a mobile framework to build truly native mobile app using Vue.js. Its is designed to connect React Native and Vue.js Vue Native is a wrapper around React Native APIs, which allows you to use Vue.js and compose rich mobile User Interface..
Flutter and Vue Native belong to "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Flutter are:
- Fast development - Flutter's "hot reload" helps you quickly and easily experiment, build UIs, add features, and fix bug faster. Experience sub-second reload times, without losing state, on emulators, simulators, and hardware for iOS and Android.
- Expressive UIs - Delight your users with Flutter's built-in beautiful Material Design and Cupertino (iOS-flavor) widgets, rich motion APIs, smooth natural scrolling, and platform awareness.
- Access native features and SDKs - Make your app come to life with platform APIs, 3rd party SDKs, and native code. Flutter lets you reuse your existing Java, Swift, and ObjC code, and access native features and SDKs on iOS and Android.
On the other hand, Vue Native provides the following key features:
- Declarative rendering
- Two-way binding
- Goodness of Vue ecosystem
"Hot Reload" is the primary reason why developers consider Flutter over the competitors, whereas "Syntactic sugar" was stated as the key factor in picking Vue Native.
Flutter and Vue Native are both open source tools. Flutter with 69.4K GitHub stars and 8.09K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Vue Native with 6.2K GitHub stars and 216 GitHub forks.

We built the first version of our app with RN and it turned out a mess in a while. A lot of bugs along with poor performance out of the box for a fairly large app. Many things, that native platform has, cannot be done with existing solutions for RN. For instance, large titles on iOS are not fully implemented in any of existing navigations libraries. Also there's painfully slow JSON bridge and many other small, yet annoying things. On the other hand Flutter became a really powerful and easy-to-use tool. A bit of a learning curve, of course, because of Dart, but it worth learning. Flutter offers TONS of built-in features, no JSON-bridge, AOT compilation for iOS.
