Great to see this back and fully browser-fied!
We have revived  Compared to the old version, the new version features in-browser compilation, support for dart:html, and works offline.

If you have an iOS device, you can install Try Dart! as an app on your home screen, see

I've been working on this project during my vacation time, but the entire Dart team at Google has helped me with awesome ideas.  Especially, +Nicolas Geoffray +Seth Ladd +Luke Church.  Thank you, guys!


#IfIHadGlass I'd never need to worry about where to mount the GPS when touring or exploring on a recumbent bike.

Today's XKCD sums up the mobile web alarmingly well...

Must work out how to get Chrome-for-Android to request desktop sites by default...

Get rid of those trailing cables while testing and debugging Android apps, and run adb over your wireless network instead!  Deploying large APKs is a little slower than over USB, but otherwise it seems to be completely seamless.

Oh what I'd give for an SDK...
We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.

Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?

Post has shared content is hiring for two new Cocoa developer positions! If you're crazy for quality software for research or especially molecular biology, now's your time.

We need someone with lab experience or a background in science, who can empathize with the needs of scientists and design good-looking and functional user interfaces. You will also need to know Cocoa inside out, but you don't have to be the world's greatest programmer (yet) -- we aren't either. If you also write C++ or have worked on web applications, that's a great plus.

(please share!)

The 778 error code would come in handy for genomics.

Dear lazywebs: any suggestions for Javascript UI frameworks that "just work" without bringing build systems and dependencies (i.e. Cappuccino and SproutCore are out, and Closure is at best marginal).

So far looking at jQueryUI and KendoUI -- anyone done a comparison?

Other options very welcome, especially if they don't bring jQuery along for the ride.
