Google Offers Tool To Translate JavaScript to Dart

Promoting its alternative language to JavaScript, Google is working to bridge JavaScript to Google Dart, with the release Monday of an application that the company is calling its JavaScript to Dart Synonym app.

Web developers are familiar and comfortable with JavaScript. However, JavaScript developers interested in using DART didn?t know how to map common JavaScript idioms to Dart. Hence the idea for this synonym app was born.

Google started with the basics that every JavaScript and jQuery developer knows: variables, arrays, functions, classes, DOM manipulation, and many more. Then, with the help of the Dart team, Google recorded the corresponding Dart versions of each idiom.

"We hope our app that maps between JavaScript and Dart eases your introduction to Dart and gives you a sense of where the project is going," said Aaron Wheeler, Google senior user experience prototype, and Marcin Wichary, Google senior user experience designer, in the official Google Code Blog.

Google Dart was unveiled last October as a language for "structured Web programming." The company has argued that Dart would address so-called scalablity limitations of JavaScript.

"We know the team is eager to hear your feedback. Don't hesitate to join the conversation or file a new issue for either Dart or the Synonym app. And remember, Dart isn't set in stone, so your feedback counts," Wheeler and Wichary said.
