Can you believe that a flutter app can be made under 5 Kilobytes?
Neither me, but this was a challenge set by Google in 2019
Flutter is Fun
I know a bit of Java and Kotlin and I have made some simple apps and Flutter was new to me, but the challenge that we need to make a 5KB app for a successful submission made me curious and I definitely wanted to give it a try.
Flutter Create Challenge – 2019
The challenge stated that participants have to make a Flutter app with 5KB of Dart code and the judging criteria are as follows
- Visual beauty
- Novelty of idea
- Code quality
- Overall execution
There were winners in all categories winning some cool prizes like a Fully-loaded Apple iMac Pro here’s the link to the official page and winner apps.
I tried to make a Gmail UI clone
I was not familiar with Flutter however with the help of some codelabs and tutorials I understood a little bit how the Dart Language and Flutter works, I don’t think my app is of any good use but it was under “5KB” and I’m glad that I made a successful submission. Below are the screenshots of the app I made and the certificate I received for successful submission is shown in the beginning.
There was no such thing as backend and all I just tried to make it look like the Gmail Android App back then that’s it.
