Build Status

This is the book Dart: Up and Running by Kathy Walrath and Seth Ladd. More info:

Repo and testing info

The text in this repo is old; the latest text is in the dart-lang/ repo under /src/_guides/language/language-tour and /src/_guides/libraries/library-tour. To see the generated version of these docs, see the Language Tour and Library Tour on

This repo still contains the latest code.

Currently, tests only whether the .dart files under code/ pass static analysis (dart_analyzer). We could do real unit testing, and we could do better with HTML samples.
