So I started reading the website, then I saw something like: “StatelessWidget” and “StatefulWidget” then I closed my browser

Flutter is the "UI toolkit" for Fuchsia OS, so I wouldn't dismiss it. Dart is a pleasant language too (compared to both Java and JS). What I found not so appealing about flutter is the verbose programmatic UI code. Some Kotlin-esque syntax sugar would have been nice to make more concide DSLs
I just looked at Dart and I don't like it. It's a step backwards, not forwards.

Flutter is very similar to React, it is much better in terms of tooling, everything just works out of the box, it is still in alfa stage but very promising. Can't wait for a first stable release. And i agree that building layouts with it is a bit to verbose, each ui component has single responsibility and you have to nest a lot of them to get what you want.
Dart is very similar to Java, it is much simpler than Kotlin, but has got all you need to be productive.

Dart seems like a step closer to Go, not to Kotlin
