Dart SDK

The Dart SDK has the libraries and command-line tools that you need to develop Dart applications. To learn about other tools you can use for Dart development, see Dart Tools.

Getting the SDK

If you have an up-to-date version of Dart Editor, you already have the SDK. It’s in the dart-sdk subdirectory of the Dart installation directory.

Otherwise, you can download the SDK directly.

What’s in the SDK

The SDK directory includes a lib directory for the Dart libraries and a bin directory that has these command-line tools:

The standalone VM
The Dart-to-JavaScript compiler
The static analyzer
The API documentation generator
The Dart package and asset manager
The Dart code formatter

For more information about the SDK, see its README file.

Installing the SDK

Unzip the SDK download file. Dart is installed!
