Dart Version of AngularJS Framework By Google

Google Team has come up with a Dart version of AngularJs framework, which is also known as AngularDart. Now Angular 2 codebase are divided into two i.e., the Dart version in which codebase is written directly in the Dart and TypeScript/JavaScript version. AngularDart is heavily inspired by the AngularJS and features of core Angular such as Data binding and Dependency Injection are all present here. AngularDart is built on web standards such as Shadow DOM and this is great news for developers because:

1. The framework feels more like idiomatic Dart.

2. It makes use of Dart features that couldn't work with the TypeScript flavor.

3. It is very fast as compared to AngularJS.

AngularDart VS AngularJS

1. AngularJS is written in Javascript and AngularDart is written in Dart.

2. The expression language is supported by both the versions.

3. The parser used in the AngularDart is a direct port of AngularJS and the difference between the two is that AngularDart supports multiple backends.

4. The Dependency Injection (DI) system is different in both. The Dart is class based and Javascript is symbol based.

5. The compiler used in AngularDart is completely rewritten, which means that directives behave differently and there is a difference between ‘structural’ and ‘decorative’ directives.

6. In AngularDart, link/compile functions are replaced with an apply function.

7. The attribute maps concept is available on AngularDart and not on AngularJS.

Step 3: The output can be viewed both in HTML and console. We can see the effect in the output screen after executing the code.

We have executed the AngularDart code and here we can see the loop has executed 4 times and printed “Welcome to Angulardart 3!” giving the index value as 3.
