Dart SDK overview
The Dart SDK has the libraries and command-line tools that you need to develop Dart web, command-line, and server apps. To get the Dart SDK, see Get Dart.
If you’re developing only mobile apps, then you don’t need the Dart SDK; just install Flutter.
To learn about other tools you can use for Dart development, see the Dart tools page.
What’s in the Dart SDK
The Dart SDK includes a
lib directory for the Dart libraries and a
directory that has these command-line tools:
- The standalone VM
- A tool that AOT compiles Dart code to native x64 machine code, producing either a standalone executable or a snapshot
- A Dart runtime for AOT-compiled snapshots
- The static analyzer
For more information about the SDK, see its README file.
