Is Jactpack compose going to be widget rich same as flutter ?

personally I like things stupid simple. Also on flutter everything is widget. This also could be a reason why flutter has so many of them.
just my personal feelings

I would expect Compose to have native components for (most of) the components from the Material spec, as well as the layout components it has now. What other components are you hoping for? I expect the community will build a lot of stuff third-party, since it’s so easy.

There are two aspects to this
Flutter exposes as widgets many things that Compose exposes as modifiers
In that respect, Compose will have fewer widgets since by definition not everything is a widget in the Compose world
Both Flutter and Compose are committed to supporting the Material Design guidelines and specifications, so you should expect to see the same widgets overall in both toolkits (and it’s true as well for the existing View system on Android when coupled with the MDC library)
Of course if there are widgets that you believe are missing in Compose, let us know and file a feature request, we’ll be happy to take it under consideration

I see, thank you! so what I understand that flutter and jetpack compose should be equivalent in capabilities, is that right?

It might help to find what you need by looking at what the community is building ... @Vinay Gaba built this index of components https://jetpackcompose.app/
