Why Converter NOW
Converter NOW is an effective unit and currency converter
Why I made Converter NOW
A few years ago I noticed that most of the unit converters on the digital stores were ugly, not immediately usable, with tons of useless tools. I thought it would be a good idea to develop a unit converter app that solve all this problems.
That year (2018) I first heard of Flutter. It still was in beta, but I decided to build it with this modern framework anyway, just to learn more. My friend Giovanni made the app logo for me and I launched it on the Play Store.
The project is not well structured. I made it to learn more about programming. It is not perfect but I hope that with your help we can improve it!
How can you improve it? Just star the repo and take a look at contributing file.
You can either install this app from the main app stores or compile it from the source code.
If you want to directly install this app for your platform check the direct links at the top of this README.
If you choose the second option you have first to install flutter and have all the tools specific for the target platform (e.g. Android studio for Android, Visual Studio for Windows etc.). Make sure everything is right with
flutter doctor. Then, clone this project and
cd to the directory. Type
flutter pub get to get all the dependencies and generate the code for the translations.
First, you have to disable the signing option in
android/app/build.gradle (just comment that line). Then you can type
flutter build apk --split-per-abi to compile the code. You can find the output in
flutter build linux to compile the code. You can find the output in
A compiled installer for Windows is already availavble in the release section.
flutter build windows to compile the code. You can find the output in
flutter build web to compile the code. You can find the output in
You should be able to run this app also on iOS and MacOS, however I've not tested it. You can try and let me know.
