    similar to Flutter
    Flutter has 2 rendering approaches for web actually. A canvas based approach for speed and correctness, and a dom based approach for binary size, accessibility, and seo. Canvas is the more commonly used one I would imagine.

    Man I wish flutter would just add kotlin support... I like everything about it except dart...

    The Flutter team considered it. I’d probably be using Flutter right now if they had. However, Compose offers the best of all potential worlds I think.
    Flutter ends up being Constructor Hell from my experience. Compose’s DSL is much nicer to use

    Compose is awesome, however flutter is truly cross platform (although opinionated), an area which compose does not yet fill.
    I should probably clarify - flutter is fully cross platform UI framework.
    Oh well, seeing how rapidly compose is growing towards that, I guess there's little benefit of introducing flutter as a competitor to that now.
    I was shocked when Ubuntu decided to go with flutter for their native app kit last week.

    I didn’t know ubuntu did that. What does that entail?
    2022 is the year we’ll be fully multiplatform on compose I’d imagine. We’re really just waiting on web canvas, and compose ios.
    It’d be great to get compose native so a JVM isn’t necessary to be shipped, but that’s less important

    Basically Ubuntu recently announced that they are endorsing flutter as a first class choice for native ubuntu apps. They're also building a companion flutter lib with ubuntu widgets to use.

    @Big Chungus But this article is already 9 months old. Long before Compose desktop went alpha.

    Wasn't email. Just a regular google news feed on android. Looks like that still needs "relevance" recognition coded in 😄
