Dart plugin for Eclipse is Ready for Preview

UPDATE: Eclipse plugin for Dart is now stable and ready to use. Learn more https://www.dartlang.org/tools/eclipse-plugin/

Greetings Dartisans,

We're happy to announce that the Dart Editor Plugin for Eclipse is ready for preview. There are still some rough edges and we don't have feature parity with the standalone Dart Editor but there's enough in place that interested folks may want to check it out.

If you want to kick the tires, add the following URL to the list of available software sites in your Eclipse installation (Window > Preferences > Install/Update > Available Software Sites):

http://www.dartlang.org/eclipse/update/

Important note: on initial install, a secondary download of the dart SDK will occur. The download should only take a few seconds and will happen in the background with progress displayed in the status line. When it's done, you'll need to restart eclipse (again). (For the curious, this second restart is required to get the SDK properly recognized and is only a short-term work-around -- but hey it's an alpha!)

As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. (And we're counting on it! :)) For general issues and feedback, feel free to chime in on issue 702, or open a new one on dartbug.com.

Thanks!

  1. Great !
    How do we link with dartium to launch app ?
    I've tried to copy Chomium.app into eclipse/dart-sdk but without success: "Could not find Dartium" error raises.

    1. I copied the the chromium folder in the dart editor to my eclipse folder and it magically worked.

  3. Hi,

    I installed dart plugin in Juno Eclipse. It installed successfully. I created a Dart project : created successfully but when I created a dart file into it showing error “Failed to resolve null” while I didn’t create anything more apart from a dart file with a class.

  4. What features does this plugin have? Is it just syntax highlighting?

  5. As I understood, the dart editor is actually built on top of Eclipse technology. Could you please explain how Eclipse, the dart Editor and the Dart plugin relate to each other. I would have expected that the Dart editor would almost _be_ the dart plugin for Eclipse

  6. Hello guys
    I install the Dart Editor (2013-04-08, build 21094) and created project with Web_UI. But it gives me this error Pub install failed, java.io.IOException: Cannot run program error=13, Permission denied.
    The work around is to give permission on the file dart-sdk/bin/pub to be executable and then restart Eclipse.
    My Os is Ubuntu 12.04.

Const, Static, Final, Oh my!

Posted by Seth Ladd

(This is an "oldie but a goodie" misc@dartlang.org post originally written by Bob Nystrom. It is being posted here as the explanations still ring true.)

Bob writes:


"static", "final", and "const" mean entirely distinct things in Dart:

"static" means a member is available on the class itself instead of on instances of the class. That's all it means, and it isn't used for anything else. static modifies *members*.

"final" means single-assignment: a final variable or field *must* have an initializer. Once assigned a value, a final variable's value cannot be changed. final modifies *variables*.

"const" has a meaning that's a bit more complex and subtle in Dart. const modifies *values*. You can use it when creating collections, like const [1, 2, 3], and when constructing objects (instead of new) like const Point(2, 3). Here, const means that the object's entire deep state can be determ…

Dart 1.12 Released, with Null-Aware Operators and more

Dart 1.12.0 is now released! It contains the new null-aware operators language feature, and enhancements to pub, Observatory, dartdoc, and much more.

Null-aware operators

The new null-aware operators help you reduce the amount of code required to work with references that are potentially null. This feature is a collection of syntactic sugar for traversing (potentially null) object calls, conditionally setting a variable, and evaluating two (potentially null) expressions.

Click or tap the red Run button below to see them in action.

??

  if null operator. `expr1 ?? expr2` evaluates to `expr1` if not `null`, otherwise `expr2`.


??=

  null-aware assignment. `v ??= expr` causes `v` to be assigned `expr` only if `v` is `null`.

x?.p

  null-aware access. `x?.p` evaluates to `x.p` if `x` is not `null`, otherwise evaluates to `null`.

x?.m()

  null-aware method invocation. `x?.m()` invokes `m` only if `x` is not `null`.

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…
