  1. Hi, David!

    Just read your Dart slides from Senchacon. I have couple questions:
    1) Would you recommend to start new big(like 1 year long development) projects on GWT?
    2) From the leaked email we know that Google plans to have a migration path for GWT & Closure apps to Dart. Will Dart UI/Widget library be based on Closure Library, since it’s what Google uses in it’s flagship products Gmail/Docs/Calendar/Maps/Plus…? Migrating GWT apps wouldn’t be that easy in this case.

    • Hi Lapusta,

      Yes, I would recommend GWT for new big projects. Dart is still a technical preview, whereas GWT is relatively mature with lots of tools & frameworks. I don’t know much about the UI team’s plans. So far it’s very close to the metal (DOM). Best way to keep track of it is to follow the commit logs.

    Very nice set of slides from Senchacon. It would great if you could provide a step-by-step tutorial and the set up required (to work in conjunction with Java Web App) to leverage DART in such a way that it produces Javascript so that the app is accessible to all browsers. Most of the examples I see of Dart as a standalone code fragments without the interaction with DOM. Thanks.
