Introduction to Flutter and the Dart Programming Language

Creating a New Flutter Project in Your IDE

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a new Flutter project in your Integrated Development Environment (IDE). We will go through the steps for both Android Studio and Visual Studio Code.

Android Studio

  1. Open Android Studio and click “Create New Project” on the welcome screen.
  2. Select “Flutter” from the list of project types and click “Next”.
  3. Enter a project name and location for your project, and click “Finish”.
  4. Android Studio will create your new Flutter project and open the main Dart file, main.dart, in the editor.

Visual Studio Code

  1. Open Visual Studio Code and click “File > New Folder” to create a new folder for your project.
  2. Open the command palette by pressing Shift + Command + P on macOS or Shift + Ctrl + P on Windows and Linux.
  3. In the command palette, type “Flutter” and select “Flutter: New Project”.
  4. Choose a name and location for your project, and click “Create Project”.
  5. Visual Studio Code will create your new Flutter project and open the main Dart file, main.dart, in the editor.

To create a “Hello World” app in Flutter, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Flutter project in your Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
  2. Find the main Dart file, main.dart, in your project. This is the entry point for your Flutter app.
  3. Replace the contents of the file with the following code:
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Hello World',
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: Text('Hello World'),
        ),
  1. Save the file and run your app by clicking the “Play” button in the top toolbar of your IDE. Your app should display a simple “Hello World” message on the screen.

That’s it! You are now ready to start building your Flutter app. Don’t forget to check out the Flutter documentation for more information on how to build and debug your app. Good luck!
