In this article, we are talking about how to create the CI/CD Pipeline for the Flutter application.

In my previous article, we discussed How we can create a CI/CD Pipeline for the React Native application.

We already discussed what is CodePipeline and Codebuild in the previous article so let’s not jump into that and start creating our pipeline.

Let’s Create our pipeline for the Flutter app.

In this tutorial, We will create and configure a flutter pipeline with two actions: source and Build.
