💭 Current status
Now I am working on pull requests to Flutter framework and engine (i.e. not directly modifying code in this repository), such that you can use this package with standard stable Flutter. An auto-generated list of PRs can be seen here, or conversations here.
💻 📖 🤔
More specifically, thanks for all these contributions:
- @Hixie (Flutter team): Consider details of my several proposals to the Flutter framework/engine such as requiring zero-overhead principle. Construct concrete cases when the initial proposal becomes fragile.
- @dnfield (Flutter team): Provide a canonical janky case inside Flutter framework to help prototyping. Point out slowness of sync generators which avoids detouring.
- @jonahwilliams (Flutter team): Elaborate shortcomings of the old gesture system proposal (later I made a much more natural one).
- @gaaclarke (Flutter team): Share his pet theory that slowness is caused by memory locality, indicating another potential application of the package.
- @Nayuta403: Fix link.
- @pajlada: Fix typo.
