Dart – replacing Javascript

Personally, I find Javascript infuriating: the lack of consistency; its confusion between being a functional language, an object-oriented one, or neither; and the impossible-to-understand treatment of `this` in most contexts, make it a real pain to use.

I have recently started a project that required my using it, and even with the help of jQuery (which I really think is a great library: respect to the many contributors) I still can’t get to like and enjoy coding in Javascript.

So, it was good to learn that about Dart – I’m going to experiment a bit with it, and I’m really hoping it’s going to work out.

Tutorials here – and there is both a standalone (Eclipse-based) editor, as well as plugins for Eclipse and IntelliJ.
