made my first dart server today, i already fucking love it!
i already used it for flutter, and previous node.js was my backend of choice.
i'd recommend strongly. no matter the platform for the frontend, web or mobile (or desktop app), you can use dart, and you can use it for the backend too!
it's like java but not shit.3
can you guys look at the design of my app?
kinda ugly imo.
also please fuck around and find bugs.
ps it's my first flutter app8
someone brought something to school today, a "ac receiver" or "av receiver" or something? he pointed it at the board and turn it off, and i heard he opened someone's email with it? does anyone know what this could be?6
may do an extreme rpi project…
is a self driving go kart or self flying drone cooler?
and for the drone, i think it would be easier, what do you guys think?
please answer - also for the drone, is there a way i could get it to connect from anywhere (within reason)? i know if it were a cell phone, i could get a signal from anywhere, but i don't want to pay for a monthly plan.4
making a self driving go kart controlled with a rpi, should i use python, java, dart, or something else? python seems like the obvious choice.
i plan on making it have google maps integrated, with netflix and music player, with a touchscreen.
i was thinking c++, but a gui with c++ didn't seem ideal.
what would you use?
also is an rpi too slow to make the go kart be *relatively* safe?3
i recently made an app, tested it, everything worked, so i created a release apk and uploaded to the google play beta program.
then i downloaded the app in the airport, it didn't work. rip me.
i thought it might be a backend problem, so i logged into cpanel and google play console from my phone, tried looking at logs, etc.
no luck. i'll fix it when i get home i guess 😞2
hey guys if any of you guys are good with legal stuff some help would be appreciated.
so there’s this brand tld, which i won’t state for privacy sake. it is, coincidentally, my last name. naturally, i thought it would be pretty cool if i could change my personal domain to <my first name>.<my last name> but after contacting them i did not get a response.
do you guys think i have any legal standing to get my domain? could anyone help?8
at lunch today with @UncreativeError and we both made algorithms for acsl, due by the end of lunch. @UncreativeError chose the boring way of starting it a few days before it was due. “start at lunch, finish at lunch,” that’s my motto.1
so on android you're supposed to do network stuff like sockets and http requests on a separate thread right. lazy me released an app with a line of code (i forget what it is) that allows me to make http requests in the main thread. rip3
why do i have an iphone?
well, let's start with the cons of android.
- its less secure. this isn't even arguable. it took the fbi a month or something (i forget) to break into an ios device
- permission, permissions, permissions. many of the android apps i use ask for the not obscure permissions.
· no, you don't need access to my contacts
· no, you don't need access to my camera to take notes
· no, you don't need access to my microphone to send messages
· no, you don't need access to my saved passwords to be a functioning calculator
- not being able to block some apps from an internet connection
- using an operating system created and maintained by an advertising company, aka no more privacy
- i like ios's cupertino more than material design, but that's just personal preference
pros of ios:
- being able to use imessage, at my school if you don't have an iphone you're just not allowed to be in the group chat
- the reliability. i've yet a data loss issue
- the design and feel. it just feels premium
- if i could afford it, ios seems like a lot of fun to develop for (running a hackintosh vm compiled a flutter app 2x as fast as it did on not-a-vm windows)
so that's why i like iphones
i'm trying to make a simple app. it would be an easier to do both natively.
for fucks sake flutter, add some functionality. flutter recently got out of beta but it's not fucking done. no native webviews, no native push notifications. fuck that.
however, i do have to give credit where credit is due. coming into flutter i expected a different feel of the app on iphone and android. it was exactly the same, and it was smooth too. in that respect, i love flutter.
also guys, i have an app (not finished yet) i built with flutter and i would like some constructive criticism for changing the ui. only android right now though, i can't afford ios.
help with the ui for my app?
it pretty much just gives you a word a day. they frontend is functionally complete, but it looks pretty ugly. any ui ideas? (the backend isn't complete so only test data is being returned by the server)
it's android only right now, because i cannot afford to compile it on ios
i'll put the download link in the comments7
any ios devs here?
i'm a fifteen year old dev collaborating with a friend and we made an app - in flutter. android we are planning on publishing, but on ios we can't afford to pay the $99 to publish. we can't even compile it on a hackintosh. if anyone is willing to compile our app and give us an ipa (or publish it), we would really appreciate it!!!6
suggestions for a high school kid's personal website? i was cool, eye-catching things so even people who aren't hiring to be entertained8
kinda pissed at github/microsoft right now. my friend applied for the student developer pack before microsoft bought github and got accepted in 10 min, i'm still waiting and it's been three days. how long did yours take?14
i wonder, if i made an app such as google or another search engine that was almost exactly the same thing except it uses significantly less data (because we don't include all that tracker data), would anyone use it?7
making a messaging app, can you guys name a feature that would be cool that you would like to have, one you must have and/or one that you would like to see in the messaging app you use?14
*sees new trendy language*
- language is as fast as c
- cross platform
- extensive libraries, tools and tutorials
- easy to learn
- conceptually well thought-out
*doesn't like syntax*
