Return Of Google’s Dart Programming Language

Since the time Google let off considering Dart as a direct competitor to Javascript and rather  made it as a compile-to-Javascript language, there has been much silence around Dart. But, this is not going to be the same since a Dart developer conference in Munich is going to be hosted by Google this week, and this is going to bring back Dart onto the stage again. It is not that Dart language was not successful and in fact, it was a major success at Google and even the major teams in Google such as Google Fiber team, AdSense and AdWords are relying on it to develop consumer-facing web apps. It was also known that Dart is the fastest growing programming language at Google and that it indeed helps in providing 25 to 100 percent increase in the development speed.

The team then concentrated on Dart-to-Javascript compiler instead of developing a runtime. It was also reported that it was actually difficult having both the Dart and Javascript runtime present in Chrome to interact with each other and the issue was solved as the team removed all the dependencies which were present, making it easier for the third-party apps to work with the Dart. Dart is also getting an optional strong mode, which makes it a strongly typed language. Google is also coming up with a new project known as ‘Flutter’. Flutter is similar to that of Facebook’s React Native. By using single Dart codebase, developers will be able to write code for both the Android and iOS.
