Flutter Q & A


How does Flutter handle offline data storage?

Flutter provides various options for offline data storage, commonly employing SQLite databases or key-value stores like Hive or shared_preferences. SQLite offers a relational database, suitable for complex data structures. Alternatively, Hive excels in simplicity and performance for key-value storage. 


Developers can utilize shared_preferences for lightweight, key-value pair storage, ideal for simple data persistence. Flutter plugins like sqflite and hive_flutter facilitate seamless integration. Additionally, Flutter supports platform-specific solutions such as Room database on Android. Choosing the appropriate storage method depends on the app’s requirements, balancing factors like data complexity, performance, and ease of use.
