I just tried dart …

… (dart, the programming language) to create a new version of my drawing application.

But it is not really usable at the moment.

  • The generated javascript code cannot be executed on Firefox, only works in Chrome
  • There are no nice libraries like jquery and all the jquery plugins
  • The dart IDE is in a very early state

Maybe I will come back to it when it is more advanced and stable. Dart already makes it much easier to develop a structured web application but it still needs a lot of work.

And I believe in this statement by Manuel Simoni from his Programming Language Predictions for 2012:

A GWT-like, 80’s style, object-oriented GUI framework will make Dart a major player in web apps.
