About the Tech
To date, their frontend web platform relies on React (Redux, React, Ant Design), while the mobile platform is built on Flutter. Both have served them well; however, the React project is approaching its end of life, nearly beyond upgradeability. Consequently, they have made the strategic decision to embark on a rewrite, a formidable undertaking.

They have recently conducted proof-of-concept projects in both React (Vite, MUI, etc.) and Flutter Web. Remarkably, the Flutter Web demo was not only aesthetically stunning but also completed in a fraction of the time.

Many may view our consideration of Flutter Web as audacious. They  understand the skepticism – it's a new technology, reminiscent of Flash in some respects, lacking WebAssembly support and hot reload capabilities. Frankly, almost no one is proposing it for their primary SAAS web offering, except for a select few pioneers like InvoiceNinja. However, they firmly believe this technology harbors immense potential for swift, collaborative development, delivering beautiful UX across platforms, and consolidating our codebase into a unified entity, replacing the current separation between mobile and web.
