Dart Structured Web Programming LanugageIn order to bridge the Dart and JavaScript worlds, Google Chrominum team made available the "JavaScript to Dart Synonym app" that maps between JavaScript and Dart eases your introduction to Dart and gives you a sense of where the project is going.

"We 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, we recorded the corresponding Dart versions of each idiom. To practice what we learned, we wrote this app with Dart," Aaron Wheeler and Marcin Wichary stated.

"It took approximately 2000 years for the original Rosetta Stone to be discovered, which helped translate the Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Like most web developers, we are familiar, comfortable, and productive with JavaScript. We were curious about Dart, and thanks to a recent Dart hackathon, we had the chance to play with the language and libraries. The problem was, as JavaScript developers, we didn't know how to map common JavaScript idioms to Dart. Hence the idea for this synonym app was born," the duo added.
