Live analysis results with WebStorm 10 and Dart

Today, JetBrains announced the new WebStorm 10 release, which includes significant enhancements for the Dart developer. The new version adds live analysis feedback, and fixes many reported issues. We highly recommend that all WebStorm users upgrade, and that new Dart developers who want a full-featured IDE try the new WebStorm 10 release.



WebStorm now provides on-the-fly code analysis results for Dart code, powered by the Dart Analysis server. You can quickly look through the list of warnings and errors in your project in a tool window or see them highlighted right in the editor.



WebStorm can now auto-import new libraries into your Dart code. Simply press Control-Space twice, and you will see a list of all libraries that are available. Select the library you want to use, and WebStorm automatically adds the necessary import statement to the top of the file.

You can use Dart's new async/await and generator features in WebStorm 10. Asynchronous code is now easier to write and understand, and the new language features make generating Streams and iterators much easier.

Also included in WebStorm 10 are numerous fixes and enhancements for formatting, code completion, code navigation, documentation, and more.

You can learn more about what's new in WebStorm 10, and download WebStorm 10 to create a new client or server Dart project. We hope you enjoy WebStorm's powerful Dart and web development capabilities.

Dart in 2016: The fastest growing programming language at Google, 2nd fastest growing in TIOBE Index

Dart was the fastest growing programming language at Google in 2016 with millions of lines of code written. It also made it to TIOBE Index Top 20 this month (see TIOBE's methodology).

It takes time to build something as ambitious as Dart and, in some ways, Dart is still in its infancy. But we're glad the hard work is starting to pay off.

Many thanks to our amazing community!

We're going to celebrate by ... releasing 1.22 next week (as per our usual 6 week release schedule).

AngularDart is going all Dart

Until now, the multiple language flavors of Angular 2 were written as TypeScript source, and then automatically compiled to both JavaScript and Dart. We're happy to announce that we’re splitting the Angular 2 codebase into two flavors – a Dart version and a TypeScript/JavaScript version – and creating a dedicated AngularDart team.

This is amazing news for Dart developers because:

The framework will feel more like idiomatic Dart.It will make use of Dart features that couldn't work with the TypeScript flavor. It will be faster.
This is equally great news for our TypeScript and JavaScript developers, by the way. Cleaner API, performance gains, easier contributions. Read more on the Angular blog.

Angular 2 for Dart is used by many teams at Google. Most famously by the AdWords team, but many other Google teams build large, mobile-friendly web apps. Some of the top requests from these teams were: make the API feel like Dart, provide a faster edit-refresh cycle, and improve applicat…

The new AdWords UI uses Dart — we asked why

Google just announced a re-designed AdWords experience. In case you’re not familiar with AdWords: businesses use it to advertise on google.com and partner websites. Advertising makes up majority of Google’s revenue, so when Google decides to completely redo the customer-facing front end to it, it’s a big deal. The Dart team is proud to say that this new front end is built with Dart and Angular 2. Whenever you asked us whether Google is ‘even using Dart for anything,’ this is what we had in mind but couldn’t say aloud. Until now. We asked Joshy Joseph, the primary technical lead on the project, some questions. Joshy is focusing on things like infrastructure, application latency and development velocity, so he’s the right person to ask about Dart.Q: What exactly did we launch on Monday?It’s a complete redesign of the AdWords customer experience that is rolling out slowly as a test to a small initial set of advertisers. The most noticeable thing is probably the Material Design look and f…
