Let's Get Ready to Benchmark!

Today the Dart team released the official Dart benchmark harness. This harness is an absolute requirement if you’re benchmarking Dart. Conveniently, the benchmark harness is available as a pub package.



The harness includes a template benchmark that you can copy and paste into your own project. Also included are two benchmarks that the Dart team uses internally to measure Dart’s performance: DeltaBlue and Richards. These are Dart variants of the same benchmarks in the JavaScript benchmark suite, Octane.

To use the benchmark harness in your own code, simply add the following dependency to your Dart application, by updating your pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  benchmark_harness: ">=1.0.0 <2.0.0"  

For more details on benchmarking Dart, check out the in-depth article. As always, we encourage you to join our mailing list and let us know what you think!

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…
