Google positions Dart for Client-side Web and Mobile development



Dart, a general-purpose programming language originally developed by Google, that's easy to learn, scalable and deployable everywhere is now rebooted for client-side web and mobile development in Version 2 of the language.

The cleaned-up syntax and rebuilt developer tool chain in Dart 2 has positioned it as a potential replacement for JavaScript in the browser, with strengthened type system and ability to run on VM with a just-in-time compiler, enabling hot reload during mobile development.

And developers will have advantage from fast development cycles whereby code can be edited, compiled, and replaced in apps running on a device.

Google has demonstrated the use of the language in building applications for iOS, Android, and the web. Dart can also be compiled to native code for ARM and x86 platforms.

The version 2 of the language boasts of such nifty features as definition UI as code for faster context switching between a UI markup language and the programming language, and strong typing to catch bugs earlier, boost quality and improve applications run by a team.

Google has made available a beta version for developers on GitHub or the Dart SDK, so that you can try out the beta of Dart 2 in Flutter.
