AI Assisted Development

AI Assisted Development helps the developers in scanning the project for unused skins, resources, and widgets before building an application. The AI Assisted Development also helps you to analyze the project for increasing the performance by checking if heavy widgets like RichText can be replaced with light widgets like Label.

Using the AI Assisted Development, you can:

  • Optimize the size of the project
  • Reduces the build time
  • Increases the performance of the application

Here are the topics associated with AI Assisted Development:

Analyze and fix your project

To start scanning your project, follow these steps:
