Flutter Version Management


When you have multiple Flutter projects and each project use different flutter SDK version so every time you switch project you have to switch flutter SDK version so that is a very tedious and time-consuming process.

What is FVM(flutter version management)
FVM is a simple CLI to manage Flutter SDK versions.

Why FVM?
FVM caches those versions locally, so you don’t have to wait for a full setup every time you want to switch versions.

1.Activate FVM

flutter pub global activate fvm

2.Check FVM

Note-: If you are using window terminal (Command Prompt) you see and crash then switch to Power shell.
