Overview of this book

“Anyone interested in developing Flutter applications for Android or iOS should have a copy of this book on their desk.” – Amazon 5* Review Lauded as the ‘Flutter bible’ for new and experienced mobile app developers, this recipe-based guide will teach you the best practices for robust app development, as well as how to solve cross-platform development issues. From setting up and customizing your development environment to error handling and debugging, The Flutter Cookbook covers the how-tos as well as the principles behind them. As you progress, the recipes in this book will get you up to speed with the main tasks involved in app development, such as user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design, API design, and creating animations. Later chapters will focus on routing, retrieving data from web services, and persisting data locally. A dedicated section also covers Firebase and its machine learning capabilities. The last chapter is specifically designed to help you create apps for the web and desktop (Windows, Mac, and Linux). Throughout the book, you’ll also find recipes that cover the most important features needed to build a cross-platform application, along with insights into running a single codebase on different platforms. By the end of this Flutter book, you’ll be writing and delivering fully functional apps with confidence.

Getting ready

Create a new Flutter project with your favorite editor or integrated development environment (IDE). 

You're going to need a picture for the profile image. You can choose any image you want, but you can also download this image of a dog from Unsplash

Rename the file as dog.jpg and add it to the assets folder (create assets in the root folder of your project).

We will also reuse the beach picture that we used in the previous chapter: you can download this at Rename it as beach.jpg

Don't forget to add the assets folder to your pubspec.yaml file:

- assets/

You are also going to need a new file for this page. Create a profile_screen.dart file in the lib folder.

Don't forget to have the app running while inputting this code to take advantage of hot reload.
