  1. In the language comparison, it looks like Dart takes twice (16) as many lines of code than TypeScript (8). But that’s because the implementations are different. The Dart code can be greatly simplified to look like a 1 to 1 match of the TypeScript code:

    import ‘dart:math’;

    int multiply(int a, int b) {
    return a * b;

    void main() {
    int a = Random().nextInt(10);
    int b = 3;

    print(‘$a * $b = ${multiply(a, b)}’);

    Now it takes the same number of lines as the TypeScript counterpart: 8, excluding the import and the wrapping main function, which are indeed an unavoidable.

    1. Hey wilsonsilva, thanks for your comment. It’s good to see how that code can be altered to look more compact.

      The comparison in the post though was targeted at showing the differences in syntax between the two, rather than which one needs more lines of code.

      Again, appreciate your feedback and I hope the post helped with giving you insights on the two languages.
