Spice up your Flutter apps with Shortcuts & Actions


Since a lot of developers are moving their Flutter applications to support the Web and Desktop, I propose something that will help them increase the user experience of their applications. This talk majorly focuses on adding shortcuts and actions to Flutter applications using Intents, without having to add any third party plugins/packages in the code. For example, a Flutter desktop app, or a Flutter web app has a writing/editing feature along with the ability to save things. In this case ideally the common gesture to achieve this is Ctrl+S for “save”, Ctrl+A for “select all”, Ctrl+C for “copy”, and so on. With Intents and Actions widget in Flutter, it is all possible with simplicity and minimum amount of code. This session will have most of its part as live coding stuff.
