Integrating Mixpanel with Flutterflow for Efficient Analytics solutions in Mobile Applications
In the meeting, the State Changers discussed the integration progress of Mixpanel with FlutterFlow, and potential applications in the low-code solution space that include providers such as FlutterFlow and Xano. They also discussed the timeline for the launch of the NFL season.
The conversation further evolved into the difficulties faced during the integration of Customer IO with FlutterFlow and the extra work done on Swift to make it function. It was explained that mobile providers and no-code developers are pursuing advancements rapidly, causing developers to face obstacles while incorporating certain tools, as these tools evolve and change over time.
Daniel's work with Customer IO was mentioned as a case study for solving client-specific directives. The need to interface with Swift while using Flutter was highlighted along with the challenges of incorporating Flutterflow and tweaking it to suit specific client needs.
Integrations between different analytics platforms and low-code platforms were also discussed. The idea is to determine which tools work best for specific environments. Emphasis was given on using tool-specific SDKs to automatically track events and manage telemetry. However, the participants also acknowledged that getting full benefits from such tools can be challenging and may require significant work.
Mixpanel was evaluated as a potential tool. However, it was noted that using Mixpanel's HTTP API could result in losing a lot of the tool's value, as most of the value lies in its SDK. HTTP APIs were more recommended for augmenting to capture additional circumstances rather than the whole implementation.
The participants decided to hold a deep dive session next week to further explore these topics and to solve potential implementation challenges.
