What is Flutter?

Flutter is Google’s portable UI tool for crafting beautiful, natively combined applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single base code. Flutter works with the existing original code, is used by developers around the world, and is a free and open-source tool.

Why do we use flutter?

  • The same User interface in All Platforms
  • Reduced base code Development Time
  • Increased Time-to-Market Speed
  • Similar to the Native App Performance
  • Custom, Animated UI of Any Complexity Available
  • Own Rendering Engine

This is the reason why you should prefer Flutter for Flutter app development and why you have to choose the best flutter development company for the best services.OK, next we are going through how to install flutter on windows.

What are the System requirements for installing Flutter?

To install and execute Flutter, your development environment must meet these requirements:

  • Operating Systems: Windows 7 SP1
  • Disk Space: 1.64 GB
  • Flutter depends on the below tools being available in your environment. ***** Windows PowerShell ***** Git for windows 2. x

How we Get the Flutter SDK

  1. Download the flutter installation bundle to get the Flutter SDK:
  2. Then you get the Zip file. Extract the zip file and place the contained flutter in the desired installation location for the Flutter SDK

If you don’t need to install a fixed version of the installation process, you can skip the above steps

How to Update your path?

If you want to execute Flutter commands in the regular Windows, take these steps to add Flutter to the path environment variable:

  • From the search bar, enter ‘env’ and select Edit environment variables for your profile.
  • Under the User variable feature check if there is an entry called Path: * If the entry is there, append the path to flutter\bin using; as a separator. * If there is no entry, create a user variable named Path with the path to flutter\bin as its value.

You have to close and restart the existing console windows for these changes to work.

How to run a flutter doctor?

From a console window that has the Flutter directory in the path, run the below command to see if there are platform dependencies you need to fulfill the setup:

C:\src\flutter>flutter doctor

The above syntax checks your flutter environment and shows a list of the status of your installation. Check the output for other software you should need to install.

Android setup

How to install Android Studio:

  1. install Android studio
  2. Start the Studio, and go to the ‘Android Studio Setup Wizard’. Keep starting Android SDK Build-Tools, which are needed by Flutter when developing for Android.
  3. Execute flutter doctor to confirm that Flutter has located your installation of Android Studio. If Flutter cannot locate it, run flutter config --android-studio-dir to set the package that Android Studio is installed to.

How to Set up your Android device

To prepare to execute Flutter app on an Android device, you should need an Android device running Android 4.1.

  1. Enable options and USB debugging on the device.
  2. Use a cable to plug your phone into your computer
  3. In the console, run the flutter devices command to verify that Flutter recognizes your connected Android. By default, Flutter uses the version of the Android where your adb tool is based. If you need Flutter to use a different installation of Android SDK, you must set the ANDROID_SDK_ROOT environment variable to that directory.

How to Agree to Android Licenses?

Before you use Flutter, you must sign the licenses of the Android SDK platform. This option should be done after you installed the tools listed in this blog.

  1. Make sure that you have the latest version of Java 8 installed and that your JAVA_HOME environment variable is set to the JDK’s folder.
  2. Android Studio version 2.2 has come with a JDK, so this should already be done.
  3. Review the terms of each license stressfully before agreeing to them.
  4. Once you are done agreeing, run flutter doctor again to confirm that you are ready to use Flutter.

Additional Windows requirements

For Windows desktop development, you need the below in addition to the Flutter SDK:

  • Visual studio. For Win32 you need the “Desktop development with C++” workload installed, including all of its automatic components. For UWP you need the “Universal Windows Platform development” workload installed, with the optional UWP C++ tools.

If you want an iOS app do you know the pain of distributing apps to your beta testers? Completing the UDIDs into the portal that mobile app testers can work and then trying them to get your app through the ad-hoc network was actually a bit of pain. But now that’s run to change for good in the new and latest version.

Do you know what all features make perfect shiny iPhones and iPods? Of course, the new software packs a punch of a variety of features that are beneficial both for users as well as developers. The testing app that is used called TestFlight will help the developers to make the IOS app smoother. Just to fulfil that wish of yours, we have decided to bring you a blog that will explain the features of TestFlight. In this blog, we will also guide you through the variety of feature functionality and explain how you can make the best use of the Testflight app.

What Is Known As Testflight?

Testflight is a clear simple app that will help you install the beta versions of apps that are used for testing. But now it is so much simpler than it was earlier with testing for iOS app development and app testers. Apple has been to go the simple way with beta testing for iOS.

How To Test Your Ios App In 3 Simple Steps?

  • First, you have to upload the app to the app store connect.
  • Secondly, you have to send an invite to those who are going to test the app
  • At last download test flight app and start testing

How To Release The App To The App Store?

With the test flight app, people are testing what will be the version of the will need to go until the end of the submission process to download the .ipa file to be uploaded to App Store Connect. Use the transporter that is now replaced by the application loader to upload this file to your App Store Connect account, just as you would do if you were to put it on the App Store for users.

How do you send an invite to those who are going to test the app?

Once your .ipa file has been uploaded to the App Store, you can invite different users to test your app. In the industry there are two types of testers you can invite

  • The first one is internal tester: These people are your App Store Connect users. Unless these people are from your team or the people who have been given access to your App Store Connect account, there are some chances that you're ready to invite internal testers to test one of your projects which means your app. If you do, Be aware that you can invite-only 25 internal testers for each project.
  • The second one is external tester: You don’t need to have an App Store Connect account to be an external tester for the app. You can invite any people that you want to test your app, up to 10,000 external testers for each project.

When you invite external testers for testing your app, Apple will check your app and give the approval to allow external testing.

This is the reason why you'll have to provide some information to the Apple review team about your project that means your app they review about:

  • What's the purpose of the app that you made?
  • What do you want people to test your app?
  • who Apple contact during the verification process if needed?

Enter the email of the testers that are testing externally for the verification and add the build to the test. As soon as you have been approved for beta testing, you will receive an email from Apple to inform you. For testers to be ready to start testing your app, go back to App Store Connect and click the Send Invites button under Prerelease for your app.

How to Download Test Flight app and start testing?

The testers that you are invited to will receive an email with a link to test your app. To be ready to test, At first, they will need to download the TestFlight app. After accepting the invitation that you send, they will be going to the TestFlight app and they will be directed to install the app to be tested. The app will appear on the phone's springboard, and also in the TestFlight app. When started, a test session lasts up to 90 days. After that period it's no longer able to test the app unless you upload another build and you start a new round.

What are the advantages of test flight?

  • No need to make a record in App Store Connect to jump into the testing phase
  • Not needed any validation to have anyone testing your app
  • No need to have the UDID of the testers build a test version

What are the disadvantages of test flight?

  • You need to build a record in App Store Connect, but, at the end of the day, you will definitely build one anyway to publish your app.
  • Validation is needed to have external testers to test the app that you made.
  • No clue about how long it takes to review the app
  • Each testing is time-limited If you have any questions about the above topic or have to get mobile app testing services and consultations about and other digital solutions. Feel free to contact us. AIRO GLOBAL SOFTWARE will be your strong digital partner. E-mail id: [email protected]

CodeIgniter is a very famous and most relevant framework among PHP developers. It’s very fast and simple in comparison to another framework that is used in PHP also with less file size.

So till now CodeIgniter 3 was used to develop the projects in PHP and now CodeIgniter 4 has been officially released for use in the projects in PHP. Through this blog, we will understand the main differences between CodeIgniter 3 and CodeIgniter 4.

The main differences are:

  • The difference in downloads
  • The difference in the namespace
  • The difference in compatibility
  • The difference in application structure
  • The difference in controllers
  • The difference in Models
  • The difference in views
  • The difference in libraries

What Are The Differences In Downloads Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

Usually, CodeIgniter 4 can be downloaded by two methods. The first is to use the composer and the second is to use a ready-run zip file from the CodeIgniter official website. CodeIgniter 3 can be downloaded in only one way.

What Are The Difference Between Using Namespaces Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

Ok, Let’s discuss this Codeigniter 4 is built for PHP 7.2+ versions. So it says that it is built for the main latest version of PHP. and everything in this latest version of the framework is namespaced, except for the helpers.CodeIgniter 3 is not used namespace.

What Are The Difference Between The Compatibility Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

It is not compatible with CodeIgniter 3. so if you want to use CodeIgniter 4 then definitely you have to give some more effort to update the version that you using now. because in the CodeIgniter 4 it was very easy to update but in this update, they have added a lot of new variety of features that are the reason it’s not compatible with the CodeIgniter 3.

What Are The Difference Between The Application Structure Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

  • The folder of the application is renamed as an app and the framework is still in system folders, with the same interpretation as before.
  • The framework that provides for a public folder, it intended as the document root for your app
  • There will be a writable folder, to catch cache data, logs, and session data
  • Now there is no nested application because now in CI4 there is a different mechanism to extend the framework component.

What Are The Difference Between Controllers Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

  • In Codeigniter 4, You have to extend Controller instead of CI_Controller that used.
  • In this version, they do not use any constructor to use the magic. now it is the part of the base controller which you will make a great change.
  • The new thing is that Codeigniter 4 provides a Request and Response object to work. It’s more powerful than the Codeigniter 3 way.
  • If you want to use your controller as a Base Controller then make your controller anywhere you like and extend Controller and then use it anywhere you want.

What Are The Difference Between The Models Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

  • The model will not extend the CI model you have to extend the Model
  • In the Codeigniter 4 model, there are more functionalities than Codeigniter 3 including automatic database connection, basic CRUD, in-model validation and automatic pagination.
  • Instead of writing in Codeigniter 3 $this->load->model(x) now you have to write $this->x = new X():
  • Codeigniter 4 has Entity class also to use richer data mapping to database tables;

What Are The Difference Between Views Of Codeigniter 3 And Codeigniter 4

  • Instead of writing in Codeigniter 3 $this->load->view(x) you can use echo view(x);
  • Codeigniter 4 supports view cells to build your response in pieces

One of the main benefits of CodeIgniter framework development is that you can take a simple approach. Here you can easily use the PHP frameworks in order to build a software solution. The proponents of this system are quite simple to use. The interface is also pretty easy – this means that web development can be done in a seamless manner.
