How to convert from Python to Dart

Introduction to Dart and Its Ecosystem

Dart is a programming language optimized for building mobile, desktop, server, and web applications. Unlike Python, which is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language, Dart is optimized primarily for client-side development.

Understanding the Syntax Differences

Before diving into the conversion process, it’s crucial to understand the syntax differences between Python and Dart. Dart syntax resembles languages like Java and JavaScript more than Python.

Python Example

def greet(name):
    return f"Hello, {name}!"

print(greet("World"))

Dart Equivalent

String greet(String name) {
  return "Hello, $name!";
}

void main() {
  print(greet("World"));
}

Data Types and Variables

Python is dynamically typed, whereas Dart is statically typed. This means that in Dart, you need to explicitly declare the types of your variables.

Converting Variables

  • Python: x = 5
  • Dart: int x = 5;

Functions and Methods

In Dart, functions need explicit return types and parameter types, unlike Python where types are inferred.

Converting Functions

  • Python Function:

    def add(a, b):
        return a + b
    
  • Dart Function:

    int add(int a, int b) {
      return a + b;
    }
    

Classes and Objects

Dart requires class members (attributes and methods) to be explicitly defined and be part of its class structure.

Python Class Example

class Car:
    def __init__(self, model, year):
        self.model = model
        self.year = year

    def details(self):
        return f"{self.model} - {self.year}"

Dart Class Equivalent

class Car {
  String model;
  int year;

  Car(this.model, this.year);

  String details() {
    return "$model - $year";
  }
}

Control Structures

Most control structures like loops and conditionals are quite similar between Python and Dart, but remember that Dart uses {} for blocks of code.

Python Loop

for i in range(5):
    print(i)

Dart Loop

for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
  print(i);
}

Importing Libraries

Dart uses the import keyword, similar to Python’s import. However, the library names differ significantly due to ecosystem differences.

Python Import Example

import math
print(math.sqrt(16))

Dart Import Equivalent

import 'dart:math';
void main() {
  print(sqrt(16));
}

Error Handling

Dart uses a try-catch block mechanism for exception handling, analogous to Python’s try-except.

Python Example

try:
    result = 10 / 0
except ZeroDivisionError:
    print("Cannot divide by zero")

Dart Equivalent

void main() {
  try {
    var result = 10 ~/ 0;
  } catch (e) {
    print("Cannot divide by zero");
  }
}

Conclusion

Converting code from Python to Dart involves understanding the syntactic and structural differences between the two languages. Start focusing on variable declarations, typing, function definitions, and class structures as these are quite different in Dart. By following these guidelines and examples, you will be able to seamlessly convert Python code to Dart while leveraging Dart’s powerful features aimed at client-side development.
