If you are interested in building Chrome apps, a Google team is working on an IDE. Codenamed Spark it is built with Dart and has a Polymer widgets library
When we reported that Google's Dart Reaches 1.0 last week, we wondered what it might be used for and speculated that
"Chrome is the only browser likely to support a direct implementation".
The special relationship between Chrome and Dart goes even deeper than you might expect although this isn't too surprising.
To draw attention to Spark on Google+, Google engineer Francois Beaufort posted:
This IDE project is full of goodness:
Polymer, which is currently has pre-alpha status is used in a Dart version:
a new type of library for the web, built on top of Web Components, and designed to leverage the evolving web platform on modern browsers.
It is used in Mozilla's x-tag library and makes creating web components much easier. In the case of Spark so far there are only three pre-built components ready to use but you can create your own fairly easily.
It is difficult to know if linking Dart with Chrome and Chrome Apps in particular is more beneficial to Chrome or Dart. One think is certain. It makes the split between Mozilla's web apps and Google's web apps a little big wider.
