The amount of JavaScript-is-God philosophies on here is excruciating.... I respect everyone who likes JavaScript, but just because Dart isn't what you like doesn't make it inherently useless or bad. The world is all about diversity, how about some language/preference diversity?

In my opinion, JavaScript is a large flame, and all the languages that were inspired by it are the sparks. Eventually the JavaScript flame might die out, but the sparks it makes can still burn, and create their own flame.

I'm a huge lover of Dart, and I generally dislike JavaScript. My advice is to welcome Flutter. If it works out, it will work well, if it doesn't work out, it will fade away.
