Several days ago I got a 3 days nightmares, I hired by a customer to customizing his paid woocommerce Flutter android app using Android studio, I 'm starter for Android studio & flutter "I know flutter & worked with samples greatly", I entered endless problems for the app's environment setup, then entered in the app itself customization problems & in at the end the app was 50% webview! the app developer himself when we ask him about problems he told us try to googling hahahahah. I exhausted & final result not satisfy the customer!!!
In 30 minutes I created a well crafted B4A app using webview, the customer was appreciated it & loved it, he dropped the Flutter app immediatly.

Many developers here are expert in Flutter, They can read this post as not fair for Flutter, I agreed with them, Flutter is giant cross platform & supported by giant Google, But for me at least: its environment is hard, language Dart also is difficult than vb, depend on Gradle , etc ....

Many thanks for Mr. @Erel for this fastest B4X IDE & simplifying idea.

I always have to smile when I see developers proud of Instagram who first finish their app in Android Studio and then have to build it again in XCode.

Just now that B4XPages is available, I had a few moments when I loaded the project into B4I where I thought: that's it? Is that all I have to do?
And I think it's very nice!

Even creating the layouts is no problem anymore, just copy from B4A to B4I and you are done. I remember in 2017 when I spent 8 hours creating 15 layout files in B4I again...

Agree Fully.

Just reading the requirements and development tips on Flutter (Googling) I made the decision, "stay where you are and you will service".
For a developer. it is very very important to use a tool (I use many) to quickly deliver user satisfaction. B4X is developer's dream come true.

I hope everyone has a history with other languages to share us here & compare it with B4X , We need to show the strength of B4X for the world.
