    Setup your first Dart project on Windows

    We will setup our first command-line Dart application. We will use the Chocolatey package manager to install the SDK and write our first program. This will form the basis for future lessons.

    Get Chocolatey → https://chocolatey.org/docs/installation

    Instructor: 00:00 Using the Chocolatey package manager, we can install the Dart SDK by running choco install dart-sdk. Alternatively, you can install the Dev Channel version by passing the pre flag. To upgrade a pre-existing Dart installation, run choco upgrade dart-sdk.

    00:23 Restart your command prompt in order to confirm your Dart installation. Confirm Dart is properly installed by typing the dart command and passing the version flag.

    00:32 In your working folder, create a pubspec.yaml file. A pubspec file contains metadata and configuration related to a Dart project. We will enter the minimum information about our project, such as a name, description, and an author.

    00:48 All starting files go in a bin folder. Let's create one containing a main.dart file. In this file, we will define a top-level function called main. Dart requires this function to start our application. Save the file and run. This completes the lesson.
