Dart 1.5 makes it easier to develop for the mobile web


It’s important for web experiences to work great on mobile devices. The latest release of the Dart includes a development version of Dartium – Chrome with the Dart Runtime – which runs on Android devices. We’ve also updated the Dart Editor to support debugging mobile web apps written in Dart. You can set breakpoints and debug exceptions with Dart web apps running on a device with the same development flow that exists on your development machine. Check out the documentation to get started.

The Dart 1.5 release cycle was short – just four weeks – but we are excited to continue delivering great improvements to our platform and tools. You can see a summary of the updates in the release notes.


We have also released an update to the Dart Polymer package and shipped two sets of new Polymer elements. core_elements gives Dart developers access to all Polymers infrastructure components. paper_elements contains Polymer elements that follow the material design pattern that was announced at Google I/O 2014.

You can download Dart 1.5 from the Download Dart page. If you are running the Dart Editor, you can update by checking "About Dart Editor". Check out the Dart support page for information on getting help, filing issues, contributing to the project.

Dart at Google I/O 2014

Google I/O 2014 is right around the corner. This year, we’re thrilled to have more presentations about using Dart than ever before at I/O.


If you’re keen to learn more about what the Dart team and Dart users have in store for you, be sure to either check out the online schedule or install the I/O app. Pick the topic “Dart” and you’ll be taken straight to the many Dart-related events at I/O.

If you’re attending I/O this year, please drop by and say "Hi" at the Dart booth. Many Dart engineers will be at I/O, answering questions and helping you with your apps.

For those of you not able to join us in San Francisco, be sure to tune into the live stream, join a local I/O extended near you, or watch the sessions on the Google Developers YouTube channel. If you can't wait, be sure to subscribe to the Google Developers YouTube channel already now for additional Dart videos produced just for I/O, including previews of some new highly requested features.
