# Running an existing Flutter app on Web

My starting point was flutter.io. On the main page, I clicked on "web", went to https://flutter.dev/web, then to https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/web.

The requirements say that you have to be on the beta branch:

flutter channel beta
flutter config --enable-web

Then you add support for it like so:

flutter create .

I found the same issue reported here: https://github.com/flutter/flutter/issues/40257

It seems that running it from the command-line as explained in the docs works, so I'll stick to that for now:

flutter run -d chrome
