Dart on Android?

With the new #Android VM (ART) on the horizon, and #Dart hitting 1.0, It’ll be interesting to see if Google eventually makes Dart compile to native applications.

One language to target the web (#ChromeOS) and Native (Android). 

Dart isn’t just a higher-level abstraction to #javascript like CoffeeScript or TypeScript. Dart is a complete environment with it’s own VM.

I think it would make total sense if Dart bytecode ends up running on ART and once DartVM is integrated into Chrome, be able to run on ChromeOS.

Best part of all? Dart2JS and run everywhere. Though I think we will lose this feature with a framework that lets you develop native and chromeos apps.
