Standard

Adding support for a new language to an editor or IDE was once a tough task. With the development of the language server protocol that is no more. Eclipse supports the protocol and we used that to connect a new language to the Eclipse IDE: Dart.

The Dart programming language is a relatively new language. Currently it is widely used within the Flutter project which aims to be a toolkit for cross-platform and native app development. It is also used in various web related projects. 

This session will give you an overview over the Dart language, show the Dartboard Eclipse project and tell its story.
