In One Minute : DART

Dart is an open-source, class-based, statically(& strongly)-typed (with inference) programming language for building web and mobile applications created by Google. Although Dart is statically-typed it supports dynamic-typing through the 'dynamic' type.

Dartโ€™s design goals are:

  • Create a structured yet flexible language.
  • Make Dart feel familiar and natural to programmers and thus easy to learn.
  • Ensure that Dart delivers high performance on modern web browsers, mobile, and environments ranging from small handheld devices to server-side execution.

Dart targets a wide range of development scenarios, from a one-person project without much structure to a large-scale project needing formal types in the code to state programmer intent.

To support this wide range of projects, Dart provides the following features and tools:

  • Sound type system: A type system which feels lightweight thanks to inference and gives good safety
  • Mobile and Web frameworks: Dart developers can use Flutter on mobile and AngularDart on the web
  • IDE Integration: official plugins for Jetbrains' IDEs (IntelliJ IDEA / WebStorm etc) and Visual Studio Code. Community plugins also exist for many other editors backed by the Dart Analysis Server
