Front end for Dart
This package provides a low-level API for use by compiler back ends that wish to implement the Dart language. It is intended for eventual use by dev_compiler, dart2js, and the Dart VM. In addition, it will share implementation details with the analyzer package--this will be accomplished by having the analyzer package import (and re-export) parts of this package's private implementation.
End-users should use the [dartanalyzer]
analyzercli command-line tool to
analyze their Dart code.
Integrators that want to write tools that analyze Dart code should use the
Note: The APIs in this package are in an early state; developers should be careful about depending on this package.
- Defines the API for the front end to communicate information about compilation messages to clients.
- The Dart Front End contains logic to build summaries and kernel programs from Dart sources. The APIs exposed here are designed for tools in the Dart ecosystem that need to load sources and convert them to these formats.
- Defines the front-end API for converting source code to Dart Kernel objects.
