Davy Mitchell, on 22 Jul 2017
Angular Dart 4 Alpha was recently released and I was keen to try it out. There's quite a few changes as it becomes increasingly more Dart-ified and broken away from its Typescript heritage. My hobby project NP8080, as ever, is my guinea pig for such upgrades. It was almost entirely painless - we can forgive the one time rename of the package from Angular2 to plain Angular! Building is slightly slower/heavier (there's a lot going on) but this is being worked on. The standout feature for me is the component inheritance of attributes such as @input. There's a lot of... read more

We’re aflutter to announce the official Dart conference in Los Angeles on January 23-24, 2018.

A stronger Dart for everyone

Anders Thorhauge Sandholm, on 26 Jun 2017
We are constantly asking ourselves:How do we make developers even more productive when writing Dart apps?We believe that a critical part of the answer to this question is to make strong mode – a sound static type system for Dart – the standard for all Dart developers.Teams that use Dart to build apps like Soundtrap, AdWords, AdSense, and Greentea say they really enjoy using strong mode features, such as early error detection. In fact, teams that have switched completely to strong mode cite not only early error detection but also better code readability and maintainability as major benefits. We hear... read more
