A Programming Language Called Dart. What is it and how is it used?

What is Dart?

So we’re here to talk about a programming language called Dart. Back in October of 2019, we posted a blog about the framework of Flutter and how we use it here at Swan. In that blog, we made mention of the language Dart and we’ve decided to touch on it again today.

Dart is a programming language that has been designed to be client optimized for multiple platforms. Two Google developers took the liberty to create it in 2011. Their intention in this design, being to create something capable of building mobile and desktop applications. Although it wasn’t explicitly stated, many believe that Dart has been designed to eventually become JavaScript’s successor. 

Benefits of using this programming language…

One of the primary benefits of using Dart is its AOT (Ahead-of-Time) compilation. AOT allows the ability to compile code into native machine code. As a result, this allows the binary files the ability to execute natively.

Fits in well to our modern era of technology

Aside from being very flexible, easy-to-use, and highly compatible with Javascript, Dart allows a program to run even if there are errors in other places in the compilation. This allows developers ease of edit as they can test just a small section of the code regardless if the rest of the application is complete or not. 

Efficiently paced

Dart is a fast language. It will nearly always compile quicker, using a source-to-source compiler. You can expect it to have a more efficient user- interface than many of the other leading languages.

Who operates with Dart?

Companies that use the Dart language include Google, Mews, Ag Flow, and Blossom to name a few. People generally find that Dart is one of the languages that are easier to grasp, as it is fairly similar to many other programming languages. It is highly modern, functional, and flexible, and very competitive with other programming languages.
