Google is developing Spark, a tool for developers. It is doing it the Chrome way, or the Google way. Spark will be a Chrome app (native app or packaged app.. whatever you call it). And Google is using homegrown DART language to build the app.
A Chrome app based development environment with a reusable library of GUI widgets, the official description for the app says.
Spark is still under development, but it is an open-source project, which means you can watch, try, or even contribute to it. Here is the GitHub link. In François Beaufort’s words:
This IDE project is full of goodness:
– It is built with Dart¹, the “new language for scalable web app engineering”
– It contains a GUI widgets library powered by Polymer²
– It’s public on GitHub and therefore interesting for anyone who wants to know how Dart and Polymer can be used to build the next generation of Chrome Apps.
Excited developers raise your hands please.
