Dart is an open-source, class-based, single-inheritance programming language for building web and mobile applications. Developed by Google, Dart compiles to optimized native machine code and can also run in a virtual machine or be compiled to JavaScript. The language incorporates features such as strong typing, asynchronous programming support through async/await syntax, and Just-in-Time (JIT) compilation during development for hot reload capabilities. Dart is the primary language used with Google's cross-platform mobile app development framework Flutter.
