Coming Soon - 'Dart By Example' Book!

Yes this blog has been a little quiet lately, apart from Chocolatey updates because I have been working on a special Dart project. I am excited to announce that 'Dart By Example' will be published September 2015 by Packt Publishing. More details soon!

After the book, I hope to bring the blog back to life with some more fun demos along the lines of some of the games posted here already! Have fun.

Dart SDK and Dartium 1.11.3 Chocolatey Packages for Windows

Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows similar to Linux's apt-get, based on Microsoft's Nuget tool and Powershell scripting language. It works from the command-line and from a WPF GUI interface.

Chocolatey still has a large moderation backlog - however you can install unmoderated versions by specifiying the install version at the install.

Command line installation:

choco uninstall dart-sdk

choco install -y dart-sdk  -version 1.11.3
To verify you have the right version on your path.
dart --version

Dart VM version: 1.11.3 (Mon Aug 03 04:44:18 2015) on "windows_x64"

Command line installation:

choco uninstall dartium

choco install -y dartium  -version 1.11.3
