Hello Dartis a playful introduction to programming with Dart.
Previously, it was hardly realistic to program mobile or web-based applications. The Dart programming language provides a solution how such applications can be programmed much easier.
Hello Dart guides you through the basics of programming. No prior programming knowledge is required. The playful world of
Hello Dart visualizes the execution of your programs. Soon you will want to break out of the limiting rules of the
Hello Dart world, which is intended. After the introduction with
Hello Dart you will have a good foundation to start realizing your own web projects.
The world of
Hello Dart consists of fields, trees and stars.
In the world of
Hello Dart we move around with our character. You can choose from one of four characters.
A game character, called
Player has the following actions and sensors that he/she can use:
||The player makes a step forward.|
||The player turns left by 90 degrees.|
||The player turns right by 90 degrees.|
||The player puts down a star.|
||The player removes a star.|
||The player says something using a speech bubble.|
||The player checks if he can move to the next field.|
||The player checks if there is a tree in front.|
||The player checks if there is a tree on the left side.|
||The player checks if there is a tree on the right side.|
||The player checks if he is on a star.|
First you need to install the Dart Editor and the
Hello Dart scenarios. It’s described in those installation instructions.
