Dart vs Kotlin: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dart as "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. On the other hand, Kotlin is detailed as "Statically typed Programming Language targeting JVM and JavaScript". Kotlin is a statically typed programming language for the JVM, Android and the browser, 100% interoperable with Java.

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

"Backed by Google" is the top reason why over 19 developers like Dart, while over 28 developers mention "Interoperable with Java" as the leading cause for choosing Kotlin.

Kotlin is an open source tool with 28.3K GitHub stars and 3.28K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Kotlin's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Kotlin has a broader approval, being mentioned in 268 company stacks & 208 developers stacks; compared to Dart, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 78 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Dart and Kotlin?
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.

How developers use Dart and Kotlin

Even though still a young language, it feels so at home sitting in the springboot frame and works with vaadin just great. And in itself it has like all the best parts of java, scala, python mixed into one.
