In addition to editing Dart programs, you can use Dart Editor to invoke the Dart-to-JavaScript compiler and launch Dart-based web apps.

Dart slides from SenchaCon available

I recently presented Building Modern Apps with HTML5 and DART at SenchaCon. The Dart section begins with slide 26and illustrates some of the ways in which Dart facilitates the building of large-scale applications while retaining the lightweight feel of a scripting language. Click on the Dart code samples to see highlighting of various language features. We'll be adding more presentations at soon.
