How to convert from Flutter to Angular

Introduction

Converting a Flutter application to Angular can be a demanding task due to the inherent differences between the frameworks. Flutter is a UI toolkit for building natively compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase, while Angular is a platform and framework for building single-page client applications using HTML and TypeScript.

This guide provides a step-by-step approach to convert your existing Flutter application to Angular, focusing on key concepts and practices to help streamline the process.

Understanding the Differences

Framework Architecture

Flutter: Utilizes a single-threaded event loop to manage UI rendering, state management, and asynchronous operations. It uses Dart programming language coupled with a robust set of libraries and widgets.

Angular: Employs a component-based architecture, heavily reliant on observables for managing asynchronous operations and architectural patterns like MVC (Model-View-Controller). It leverages TypeScript to build complex applications.

Project Setup

Before diving into code conversion, set up your new Angular project:

  1. Install Angular CLI:

    npm install -g @angular/cli
    
  2. Create a New Angular Project:

    ng new my-angular-app
    cd my-angular-app
    
  3. Run the Application:

    ng serve
    

By doing this, you will have a baseline Angular project to which you can start migrating your Flutter components and logic.

Converting UI Components

Flutter Widgets to Angular Components

Flutter uses widgets for UI components, while Angular uses components. Here is a basic translation from Flutter widgets to Angular components.

Flutter Widget Example:

class MyHomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Flutter Home Page"),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: Text("Hello Flutter!"),
      ),
    );
  }
}

Angular Component Equivalent:

  • Create Component:

    ng generate component home-page
    
  • home-page.component.ts:

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'app-home-page',
      templateUrl: './home-page.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['./home-page.component.css']
    })
    export class HomePageComponent {
      title = 'Angular Home Page';
    }
    
  • home-page.component.html:

    <div>
      <h1>{{ title }}</h1>
      <p>Hello Angular!</p>
    </div>
    

Routing

Flutter Navigation to Angular Router

Flutter’s navigation relies on the Navigator class, while Angular uses the Angular Router for navigation between components.

Flutter Navigation:

Navigator.push(
  context,
  MaterialPageRoute(builder: (context) => SecondPage()),
);

Angular Routing:

  • Define Routes in app-routing.module.ts:

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { RouterModule, Routes } from '@angular/router';
    import { HomePageComponent } from './home-page/home-page.component';
    import { SecondPageComponent } from './second-page/second-page.component';
    
    const routes: Routes = [
      { path: 'home', component: HomePageComponent },
      { path: 'second', component: SecondPageComponent },
      { path: '', redirectTo: '/home', pathMatch: 'full' }
    ];
    
    @NgModule({
      imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
      exports: [RouterModule]
    })
    export class AppRoutingModule { }
    
  • Navigate Programmatically:

    import { Router } from '@angular/router';
    
    constructor(private router: Router) {}
    
    navigateToSecondPage() {
      this.router.navigate(['/second']);
    }
    

State Management

Flutter State to Angular Services

Flutter uses various approaches for state management like InheritedWidget, Provider, Bloc, etc. Angular handles state management through services and observables.

Flutter State Management Example:

class CounterState extends ChangeNotifier {
  int _count = 0;

  int get count => _count;

  void increment() {
    _count++;
    notifyListeners();
  }
}

Angular Service for State Management:

  • counter.service.ts:

    import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
    import { BehaviorSubject } from 'rxjs';
    
    @Injectable({ providedIn: 'root' })
    export class CounterService {
      private count = new BehaviorSubject<number>(0);
      count$ = this.count.asObservable();
    
      increment() {
        this.count.next(this.count.value + 1);
      }
    }
    
  • Use Service in Component:

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { CounterService } from './counter.service';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'app-counter',
      template: `
        <div>
          <p>Count: {{ count | async }}</p>
          <button (click)="increment()">Increment</button>
        </div>
      `
    })
    export class CounterComponent {
      count = this.counterService.count$;
    
      constructor(private counterService: CounterService) {}
    
      increment() {
        this.counterService.increment();
      }
    }
    

User Input Handling

Flutter TextField to Angular Forms

Input handling in Flutter is typically done using TextField widgets and controllers, whereas Angular uses forms and reactive form modules for handling user input.

Flutter TextField:

TextField(
  controller: _controller,
  onChanged: (text) {
    print("Text changed to: $text");
  },
);

Angular Reactive Form:

  • Import ReactiveFormsModule in app.module.ts:

    import { ReactiveFormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
    
    @NgModule({
      imports: [ReactiveFormsModule, ...],
    })
    export class AppModule {}
    
  • Component Setup:

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { FormControl } from '@angular/forms';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'app-input',
      template: `
        <input [formControl]="inputControl">
        <p>{{ inputControl.value }}</p>
      `
    })
    export class InputComponent {
      inputControl = new FormControl();
    }
    

Conclusion

Converting a Flutter application to Angular involves more than a simple code translation. Understanding the paradigms and architecture intrinsic to Angular will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the conversion process. This guide provides a comprehensive baseline for proficient Flutter developers to grasp Angular's framework, helping you build robust and scalable web applications.
