Fair is a lightweight package for Flutter, which can be used to update widget tree dynamically. This package is still at an early stage.
We create Fair so we can dispatch UI changes to users as bundle(s), the way similar to React Native. With Flutter Fair integrated, you can publish your UI pages without waiting for the next release date of your App. Fair provides standard widget, it can be used as a new dynamic page or as part of existing Flutter page.

Why open source?
There are few packages for dynamization. After open source, we can get feedback from developers in Flutter community, which is conducive to the continuous improvement of the project itself. Also it can provide reference and ideas for developers.

This project is lead by RD, including project design and development. All participants join on a part-time basis. Maintenance after open source will keep the same way.
