Building Resilient Flutter Apps: Layered Architecture with a Focus on Testing and Infrastructure
In this presentation, we delve into the world of Flutter architecture, focusing on the concept of layered architecture and its impact on testing and infrastructure. We explore the benefits of adopting a layered approach in Flutter development as broken down below: , including improved code organization, maintainability, and scalability. We discuss how testing plays a crucial role in layered architecture, enabling testability, modular design, and catching bugs early. Additionally, we touch upon the importance of infrastructure components such as linting, automated testing, app bundle creation, and deployment in supporting the architecture. The discussion is as broken down below: Benefits of Proper Architecture: · A discussion on the advantages of layered architecture specifically for Flutter development. · Exploring how it improves code organization and maintainability. · Addressing the separation of concerns and independent scaling of layers. · Explaining how Flutter's widget-based UI aligns well with the presentation layer of layered architecture. Testing in Layered Architecture: · Discussing the advantages of layered architecture in facilitating testing. · Explaining how clear separation of layers improves testability. · Discussing the ability to test individual layers in isolation and mock dependencies. · Highlighting on the different types of testing in layered architecture, such as unit testing, integration testing, and UI testing. Infrastructure Summary: · Looking into the importance of linting for consistent code quality and adherence to layered architecture. · Discussing the role of automated testing in ensuring the functionality and reliability of the app. · Highlighting on the significance of building app bundles for efficient distribution and optimization. Join us as we explore the symbiotic relationship between architecture, testing, and infrastructure in Flutter, and discover how incorporating these elements can lead to robust and successful app development.
