Flutter is an open-source UI SDK (software development kit) created by Google. First launched in 2017 and rapidly growing, Flutter has more than 110k stars on Github so far and is used by many large corporations like Google, Alibaba, BMW, Realtors, Square, etc.

Below are the system requirements to install and run Flutter on Windows and macOS in 2021.

  • Free storage: 1.32 GB
  • Pre-installed tools:
    • Windows PowerShell 5.0 or newer
    • Git 2.x

Recommend specs

The build process consumes lots of resources especially CPU. If your machine is too old, it will be too hot and you may have to pay more time than usual as well as suffering stress while developing apps with Flutter.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-8400
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Free storage: 5 GB SSD
  • Tools: Windows PowerShell 5.0+, Git 2.x

macOS

Minimum requirements:

  • OS: macOS (64-bit)
  • Free storage: 2.8 GB
  • Pre-installed tools: bash, curl, git 2.x, mkdir, rm, unzip, which, zip

Recommended requirements:

  • OS: macOS 10.10 or newer
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-8100 or equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Free storage: 5 GB SSD
  • Pre-installed tools: bash, curl, git 2.x, mkdir, rm, unzip, which, zip

MacBook Pro 2017, Mac Mini 2018, MacBook Air 2020 or better Macs are good to go.
