NativeShell (Experimental embedder for Flutter)



  • Leverages existing Flutter desktop embedder on each platform
  • Unlike Flutter desktop embedders, NativeShell provides consistent platform agnostic API
  • Multi-window support
  • Window management
    • Adjusting window styles and geometry
    • Modal dialogs
    • Windows can be set to track content size and resize automatically when content changes
  • Platform menus (popup menu, menu bar)
  • Drag and Drop
  • Written in Rust, Flutter build transparently integrated with cargo


  • This is project in a very experimental stage
