Dart is an open-source, client-side programming language used to build web and mobile apps. It is developed by Google. It is an object-oriented programming language. Or we can say that it is a class-based and garbage-collected language with C-style syntax. It is used to create applications for different platforms like mobile, desktop, server, and web. To create an application in Dart we need a Dart SDK. Dart SDK is a collection of libraries and command-line tools that you need to develop Dart web, command-line, and server apps. It can work with different types of operating systems like Windows, Linux, macOS, etc.
