Tiny Flutter: The future of Dart & Flutter on small devices?
Dart recently added experimental support for the new RISC-V CPU architecture and the first boards with these new chips are now starting to be available. One of these is the Sipeed Lichee D1, a RaspberryPi type device that is able to run Linux and Dart. At the same time, tiny but very cheap OLED screens are showing up in all sorts of devices, from soldering irons to high end music synthesizers.
But what does it mean for Flutter and its mission "Beautiful apps for every screen" when the screen is 1 inch with a resolution of 128x64? Is that even possible?
In this talk I'll cover how to get Dart running on one of these boards, how to use these tiny screens from Dart and what parts of Flutter can help with using screens this small.
