Dart| Overview on Google Programming Language
We have seen over web that for years new Programming language appeared agile , in which some took off dominantly while some back off due to their lack of competent to others popular Programming languages.So do Dart – Google’s brand-new programming language for “structured web programming.” will acquire the path of C,C++ or other web development languages like HTML, JS, since the fact is those mentioned languages evolved to perfection over years of development.
With Dart the language designers say they focus on three goals: create a structured yet flexible language for web programming, make it familiar and natural to programmers, and offer high performance on modern web browser platforms.Google believes Dart will be great for writing large web applications.
Hints on New PL
Internal Structure and code execution
Dart turns out to be a C-like optionally typed language, which the developers say allows a coder to start without types “and add them later as needed”. On client side execution Dart uses a new mime type, “application/dart” to denote its code in HTML script elements.Dart isn’t integrated with Google’s own Chrome browser but the developers say they are exploring the option.According to Google You will be able to run Dart code in several ways:
Chrome, Safari 5+, and Firefox 4+ (more browser support coming shortly).
Execute Dart code directly in a VM on the server-side
Use Dartboard to write, modify, and execute small Dart programs within any browser window
Dart on the web
What’s Dart status ?
The early preview comes with a basic set of libraries and tools for checking, compiling and running code in the new language. As of now, no browsers support Dart, not even Google’s own Chrome, but the team is planning to explore this option.Currently the Dart language has to be built from the project’s BSD licensed source.However what developers claim on first impression on Dart Language Specification “DART as a language is structured & flexible and could be definitely improved however It is like a slimmed down Java language”.Also technical and Language specification details are avail over Google official website dart.org .Dart’s source code, its issue tracker, and more are available at dart.googlecode.com.
