I was actually going to post a thread about Swift vs Flutter, but this is interesting too Paulo!

I wonder if there are more conclusive lists with the ‘best of’ apps made with the various platforms/languages?

Not a best of but you can see the same Todo app implemented in a lot of different languages:

Or you can see how how a Medium clone is build in the frontend and backend in a plethora of languages

And the RealWorld as an Elixir example here.

Ah that’s cool - I wasn’t aware of the Realworld project :+1:
