New Dart Editor Build 0.2.7.1_r15699


Dart Editor has a new build that supports theming, better error reporting, disabled support for the old getter definition syntax, numerous changes to the dart:html library and more.


Devon Carew fills us in on the details on this new build:
A new Dart Editor build is available at www.dartlang.org/editor. Changes include:

  • Added support for theming the Editor - check out the 'Visual Themes' page in the preferences dialog.
  • The extract local Variable refactoring can now extract part of a string literal.
  • Several build.dart improvements, including better error reporting.
  • There's now an option to not warn when a class with noSuchMethod() has unimplemented members.
  • Added an analyzer command line option: --type-checks-for-inferred-types. This lets command line users get the same warnings they would get with the editor.
  • Analysis changes to support the upcoming iterator changes.
  • Html editor tweaks and improvements.

Breaking changes:

We disabled support for the old getter definition syntax. The empty formal parameter list in the getter definition will be a compile error. To convert your sources from old to new syntax, simply remove the empty parameter list after the getter name. For example:

old: int get Length() => a.length;
new: int get Length => a.length;

dart:html changes:
  • Members have been ‘dartified’- they now follow the Dart naming guidelines (caveat that innerHTML has been special-cased to ease the transition to innerHtml)
    • old: Element.innerHTML
    • new: Element.innerHtml
  • Element.addText and Element.addHtml have been renamed to Element.appendText and Element.appendHtml.
  • There is now Element.append(element) as an abbreviation to Element.children.add(element).
  • pkg/htmlescape has been deleted.
                      And as always, view the changelog for the full list of changes, and to get started with the Editor see our tutorial.
                      As always, we invite you to join our Dart mailing list, ask questions on Stack Overflow, or file feature requests on dartbug.com.

                      Const, Static, Final, Oh my!

                      "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…

                      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…

                      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`.
