Google Releases Dart
But Dart is more easily organized into smaller methods and objects than in scripting languages, so as to avoid monstrous monolithic blocks of code that are difficult to maintain. It’s also designed to be more self-documenting (in the tradition of Python).
On Google’s Chromium and Code blogs, Google Dart team software engineer Lars Bak wrote,“Generally, the contracts with other parts of an application are conveyed in comments rather than in the language structure itself. As a result, it’s difficult for someone other than the author to read and maintain a particular piece of code.””
