Dart is a new language for developers outside of Google. Dart has the documentation but still, it is difficult for new developers to find solutions for some precise problems. Coding syntax and style is the same as Java, hence developers from OOPS background can understand it better and use Dart without any issues.
Because of its popularity, the JS ecosystem is huge and now, with the arrival of cloud component hubs, it even dominates the reusable components “market”. Front-end developers will need to look for an opportunity to do that.

Integrated development environment (IDE) support
Dart code can be easily developed and compiled with lightweight editors, however, there are other tools like IntelliJ IDEA and Android Studio that already include the Dart plugin and are the most usually used IDEs for Dart application development, specifically for Flutter app development.
Dart may be compiled both AOT and JIT which facilitates building apps in numerous methods as the usage of JIT compilation can speed up development and AOT compilation may be used all through the release process for better optimization. This approach has been used in Flutter app development.
