SD Times Blog: Google releases Dart 1.0, says language is ready for wide Web use

Rob Marvin
November 14, 2013 —  Dart, Google’s new programming language designed to improve on and ultimately supplant JavaScript, is ready for wide release.

In a blog post, Google software engineer and “chief Dartisan” Lars Bak announced the release of Dart SDK 1.0, a cross-browser, open-source toolkit for structured Web apps.

The SDK comes equipped with a lightweight Dart Editor and a dart2js deployment translator to run Dart code in modern browsers in place of JavaScript.

“The Dart SDK 1.0 includes everything you need to write structured Web applications: a simple yet powerful programming language, robust tools, and comprehensive core libraries,” Bak wrote. “Together, these pieces can help make your development workflow simpler, faster, and more scalable as your projects grow from a few scripts to full-fledged Web applications.”

Google first announced Dart back in 2011 (though its plans date back to 2010) as a “structured yet flexible language for programming.” While modern browsers have not yet adopted the now production-ready language, Bak stated that companies like Blossom, Montage, Soundtrap, Mandrill, Adobe, and JetBrains have started adding support for and using Dart in their products.
