AngularDart 4

Kevin Moore, on 05 Sep 2017
AngularDart v4 is now available. We've been busy since the release angular2 v3.1.0 in May. Not only did we "drop the 2", but we also improved the compiler and tightened up the framework to give you smaller code, we updated the package structure to improve usability, and we added several new features. Check out the updated documentation to get started. Just angularUpgrading to v4 will require more than updating your version constraint. The package has changed names (back) to angular – dropping the 2. You'll need to update your pubspec.yaml and the corresponding imports in your code. In most instances, find-and-replace... read more

Happy Birthday NP8080!

Davy Mitchell, on 01 Sep 2017
NP8080 turns 1 year old! Yes it was just over a year ago that I decided to combine a TextArea + Local Storage to make a little app. It's grown a lot and been a good project to try out new features and packages.

Getting your apps ready for Dart 2.0

Shams Zakhour, on 01 Aug 2017
One of the most important features for Dart 2.0, strong mode, has been available for several releases. Migrate to strong mode now to take advantage of the new sound type system that finds errors at compile time (rather than letting your users discover them). You may even find bugs that have been lurking in your code. If you are using Flutter, it already uses strong mode, so you have met this requirement. Strong mode is the primary breaking change for 2.0, but there are likely to be other updates. For more information, see Dart 2.0 Updates. read more
