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
