If you’re using Debian/Ubuntu, you can choose two options, both of which can update the SDK automatically when new versions are released.
Other options are:
To install the Dart SDK with apt-get, you first need to do some setup.
The following one-time commands set up the install for the stable channel.
# Enable HTTPS for apt. $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https # Get the Google Linux package signing key. $ sudo sh -c 'curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add -' # Set up the location of the stable repository. $ sudo sh -c 'curl https://storage.googleapis.com/download.dartlang.org/linux/debian/dart_stable.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dart_stable.list' $ sudo apt-get update
The following one-time command sets up the install for the dev channel. Do this in addition to the set up for stable channel.
# Before running this command, follow the instructions in # "Set up for the stable channel". $ sudo sh -c 'curl https://storage.googleapis.com/download.dartlang.org/linux/debian/dart_unstable.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dart_unstable.list'
The following command installs the highest available version of the Dart SDK, based on your setup.
$ sudo apt-get install dart
If you have set up your environment for both the stable and dev channel releases, the previous command always installs the dev channel, as that has a higher version number. If you want to install the stable channel instead of the dev channel, or to install a specific version number, see the next section.
The dev channel has a higher version number than the stable channel. To force installation of the stable version, use the following command.
$ sudo apt-get install dart/stable
To install a particular release, specify the version. For example:
$ sudo apt-get install dart=1.5.8-1 $ sudo apt-get install dart=1.6.* $ sudo apt-get install dart=1.7.0-dev.0.1.*
Use one of the following buttons to download the stable or
dev channel release in the
.deb package format.
You can manually download and extract the Dart SDK from a zip file:
If you’re creating Dart web apps, also download Dartium:
The Dartium binary expires after 1 year. When that happens, you need to download a new copy to continue using Dartium.
