Dart is a new initiative as application programming language by Google. Dart is easy to learn, easy to scale and deployable everywhere. Dart language is a class-based and object-oriented language with C-style syntax.
Benefits to code using Dart
- “Real” module system
- Adequate DOM interface
- Exceptional Standard Libraries
- "Real" module system.
- Rich, optional type system.
- Exceptional standard library. Includes testing framework! Also nice stuff like a general Iterable interface, Collections, Futures and streams.
- Constructs for real concurrency and parallelism in the form of Dart Isolates.
- Features taken for granted in other modern languages. Everything from string interpolation to a handy cascade operator
- Top-level support for running Dart on the server in the DartVM with great features like a VM imaging system which allows live-state dumps and fast resume.
Decent DOM interface given by dart:html
Package manager (pub) as part of the project, unlike bower, npm and the many hacks which the JS community has come up with.
- Dart has a much smaller ecosystem of libraries, packages and documentation than JS.
- JS' object literal syntax is pretty amazing and you miss it when it's not there. Dart does have literal array and map syntax but the hash-object equivalence in JS gives you quite a bit of power.
- Dart has only a single object paradigm, that of classes. With the addition of classes in ES6, writing in JS will give you two interfaces for object orientation in the form of the traditional prototypal system and the new classical system. (Personal note: I happen to prefer prototypes.)
