In the past months we've been designing and developing an Ubuntu Software Store app with the Flutter UI toolkit.

We needed a couple of things to do this in a way that users can be happy with the performance, visuals and usability, resulting in a great use experience:

  • foundation libraries to connect to the Ubuntu desktops APIs written in pure dart, the language that Flutter uses
  • a way to easily and quickly build up a UI that looks and feels Ubuntu, which resulted in three more dart packages

With those two goals reached we were able to not only create a big part of the software app but also a settings app and are now able to compose and compile new Ubuntu desktop apps like building LEGO: no headaches - brick per brick and all apps will look, feel and perform equally good.
