Dart Strong Mode and ahead-of-time compilation

Anders Thorhauge Sandholm, on 30 Nov 2016
Dart is increasingly being used as a cross platform language, and on most of these platforms ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation is a key part of the development and deployment story.The dynamic nature of Dart limits the effectiveness of ahead-of-time compilation, particularly as applications scale up in size. We therefore designed Strong Mode Dart to allow ahead-of-time compilers to generate better code by taking full advantage of the type information that programmers write. While the initial goal of Strong Mode was to enable better ahead-of-time compilation, we've also seen strong uptake of Strong Mode from users who just like the stronger static checking... read more

AngularDart 2.1 and new Components

Filip Hráček, on 28 Nov 2016

Since the focus of AngularDart is Productivity, Performance, Stability, there are no major breaking changes (see the changelog) — but a lot of behind-the-scenes improvements. Your apps will get slightly smaller and faster (even relative to 2.0 which already made huge strides in size and performance since the compiled-from-TypeScript days). Many features that AngularJS had to implement for JavaScript and TypeScript are not needed in Dart (because Dart already has those... read more

Making app development easier: Interview with Jerry Bowerman of sonarDesign

Filip Hráček, on 23 Nov 2016
sonarDesign is an Austin-based company that builds an exciting app platform, in Dart. Jerry Bowerman, the company’s CEO, previously worked at Sierra Online, EA Sports and LucasArts. I asked him some questions about the company’s vision… and tech stack. — Filip HráčekWhy did you start sonarDesign?We believe the app store model is broken. It's a nice refinement of a 40 year old paradigm of installing and updating software. It introduces friction between the app creator and end user. The app store model served a purpose in the early days. I haven’t found anyone that actually enjoys the app-cycle (discovery, install, daily... read more

Building web apps with Firebase and Dart

Anders Thorhauge Sandholm, on 23 Nov 2016
Jana Moudra is one of the many developers who joined us for the Dart Summit this year. Not only was she helping organize the new, shiny Code Lab showing off the brand new AngularDart Components, she was also giving a talk on “How to build a Dart and Firebase app in 30 mins”.We thought it’d be great to hear more about this and we’re therefore happy to share this brief chat with Jana.---So, Jana, this was the second time you attended the Dart Summit. We were really pleased to have you join us again this year and very thankful for... read more

Dart Developer Summit 2016 Videos: Soundness, AngularDart 2.0, and the Fastest Growing Language at Google

Filip Hráček, on 21 Nov 2016
Videos from last month’s Dart Developer Summit are up on YouTube and we thought we’d cherry-pick the highlights for you.The summit keynote is a summary of all the major news and of the direction the team is taking now. It’s where we announced that Dart is the fastest growing language at Google. Teams switching to Dart report up to twice the productivity and development speed of what they had previously.Next, AngularDart 2.0 was launched in a presentation by Ferhat Buyukkokten and Matan Lurey. They showed how they made the framework’s output 40% smaller and 15% faster in the 4 months since AngularDart got its... read more
