From React-Native to Flutter in 531 Commits

Here is a recording of my FlutterLDN talk about ReactNative and Flutter.

First commit for the HabitChallenge app was created on 27th of July 2017. Back then there were no other choices than to go with react-native and JavaScript.

Since then I did 3220 commits and 244 releases. App was downloaded over 140k times on Google Play and AppStore.

I am considering this a huge success, taking into account that HabitChallenge is my first mobile app and I did virtually no marketing for it!

Long story short on 7th of August 2019 I have decided to start from scratch with Flutter taking all my learning from react-native and writing every single widget and feature once again.

After 531 commits (yes, this is the actual number of commits from git history) on 24th of December, HabitChallenge 5.0 was released on Google Play!

In the talk I am comparing side by side the same widgets implemented in react-native and Flutter. This is a unique real world comparison of two technologies that lets you achieve the same effect… but with different cost.

Which one do you think is more efficient? React-Native? Flutter? You will know my conclusion after watching the talk on YouTube!
