Dart 2 is here! There’s a lot to look at in the latest edition, including a brand new approach to the type system, improved client-side development
Dart Developer Summit 2016 is happing as we speak in Munich, Germany. For those who want to be brought up to speed on the latest developments, here are the most important announcements of Day 1: AngularDart 2.0 is finally here and Dart is picking up its pace both inside and outside of Google.
Dart 1.17 has just been released. This time the team chose to focus on bringing more performance improvements to the table. Dart is moving full steam ahead and collects users’ praises with each new release.
Google associate Filip Hracek has recently moved to the Dart Development Team. A move which provoked not only rather amicably intended comments (for example that by doing so he will hopefully not be riding a dead horse), but also clearly negative reactions. Yet he provides good reasons which in his opinion speak for the success of Google’s web language.
Dart can now officially call GitHub home, in a move that has shifted the whole programming language to the popular open source hosting service. Google have also axed the Chrome Dev Editor, but are hoping the community can still salvage something from it.
Google have labelled the new Dart 1.9 release as worth the a-wait and a bunch of developers couldn’t be more chuffed. Now with async methods and await expressions, the team is touting the update as bigger than ever.
What has TypeScript got going for it that won the Angular team over? Aren’t Google using Dart internally anyway? What’s the deal with the comparisons? We try our luck at dissecting the issue of Angular’s recent TypeScript coalition.
The time has come to declare the most popular programming language of 2014. What are the different language rankings saying? And how reliable is their data?
Is Google’s language Dart on the rise? Who is ruling the Tiobe and PyPI charts this month? Read on to find out.
It’s official – Dart is now obsolete for Java devs. Anton Epple tells us he has created a way to develop HTML applications with Java APIs.
Improvements to version 1.1 include a Dart2JS compiler that outputs JS more performant than hand-written code.
We speak to Sébastien Doeraene, student of Martin Odersky and creator of an experimental Scala to JS compiler.
