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.

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
