Dart vs HAML: What are the differences?

Dart: A new web programming language with libraries, a virtual machine, and tools. Dart is a cohesive, scalable platform for building apps that run on the web (where you can use Polymer) or on servers (such as with Google Cloud Platform). Use the Dart language, libraries, and tools to write anything from simple scripts to full-featured apps; HAML: HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku. Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content.

Dart and HAML belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

"Backed by Google" is the primary reason why developers consider Dart over the competitors, whereas "Clean and simple" was stated as the key factor in picking HAML.

HAML is an open source tool with 3.44K GitHub stars and 544 GitHub forks. Here's a link to HAML's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, HAML has a broader approval, being mentioned in 113 company stacks & 40 developers stacks; compared to Dart, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 78 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Dart and HAML?
TypeScript
TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
Go
Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
PHP
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.

#Inlinecss

When we rebooted our front-end stack earlier this year, we wanted to have a consolidated and friendly developer experience. Up to that point we were using Sass and BEM. There was a mix of HAML views, React components and Angular. Since our ongoing development was going to be exclusively in React, we wanted to shift to an inline styling library so the "wall of classnames" could be eliminated. The ever-shifting landscape of inline CSS libraries for React is sometimes difficult to navigate.

We decided to go with Glamorous for a few reasons:

1) Previous team experience with this library 2) We can write our styles in plain JavaScript (which brings many benefits) 3) It supports server-side rendering 4) It has great composition patterns

As you may or may not know, Glamorous has ceased active development and been mostly superseded by Emotion. We are planning to migrate to either Emotion or @styled-components in the near future, and I'll write another Stack Decision when we get there!

I use Dart because it is a fast, modern language with an intuitive package manager and syntax similar to Java, while less verbose (i.e. public by default, _ in front of a variable, class, etc. to be private). Dart has an excellent asynchronous syntax making asynchronous calls such as filesystem interaction or HTTP requests simple and concise.

#Flare

In my modest opinion, Flutter is the future of mobile development. The framework is as important to mobile as React is to the web. And seeing that React Native does not finish taking off, I am focusing all my efforts on learning Flutter and Dart. The ecosystem is amazing. The community is crazy about Flutter. There are enough resources to learn and enjoy the framework, and the tools developed to work with it are amazing. Android Studio or Visual Studio Code has incredible plugins and Dart is a pretty straight forward and easy-to-learn language, even more, if you came from JavaScript. I admit it. I'm in love with Flutter. When you are not a designer, having a framework focused on design an pretty things is a must. And counting with tools like #flare for animations makes everything easier. It is so amazing that I wish I had a big mobile project right now at work just to use Flutter.

How developers use Dart and HAML

Personally, I really like HAML. Not having to use open and close tags is a huge time saver. As a result, writing markup with HAML is much more pleasant. HAML essentially forces you to be very strict about spacing, organization, and structure. It also makes the markup easier to read. Protip: I use this pretty frequently: htmltohaml.com

I will use Dart later to handle the payloads from Roblox and all API requests.
