Create and run a web app

We recommend using Angular for your Dart web apps. Here’s how to use WebStorm to create a web app that uses Angular:

  1. Choose Create New Project from WebStorm’s welcome screen, or File > New > Project… from the menu. A dialog appears.
  2. Choose Dart from the list on the left.
  3. If the Dart SDK path and Dartium path fields don’t have values, enter them.
  4. Edit the Location field to set the app location and name.
  5. Select Generate sample content to show the list of templates.
  6. Choose the Angular Web Application template.
  7. Click Create.

  3. Edit the corresponding template, lib/app_component.html, adding the following code to list the heroes:
  4. Run the app. You should see the list of heroes!
