Flutter is a mobile framework for the development of multiplatform native apps, so from one code we will get an app that can run on Android as well as on iOS. It is a similar experiment to Xamarin from Microsoft a few years ago. In this series, we will create an app in Flutter and show you how it all works.
In the last article of this series we will learn how to create an Anko DSL layout in a fragment. We’ll also learn how to use the RecyclerView component, again using the DSL definition.
The first article explained what localization in buildings is. In today’s article, we will present three basic methods for determining your position without a GPS system. Let’s start with dead reckoning. You know this method, even if you think you don’t.

In the third article of the Anko library series we are going to improve the design of our demo application so it looks a bit better. We will also get to know other extension functions of Anko, e.g. how to set the app layout to portrait or landscape mode.
We will show you a few tricks on how to make toasts and dialogs easier. We will also launch activities and get to other useful tips which can be found in the Anko library. This article builds on the first part where we have laid the foundation on which we will now build our demo application.

In this and future posts, I will be giving you a quick introduction to the Kotlin Anko DSL library. Anko is a library that Kotlin uses and provides a lot of extension functions to make our Android development easier. You will learn how you can define the UI in the code (by using Kotlin DSL) instead of writing it in XML. The Anko library is not only about UI definition, but it contains a lot of extension functions which can make your life easier during Android development.
