This week in Flutter #137: Google Summer of Code 2024

โ€” Newsletter

Spring is almost here, which means that Google Summer of Code 2024 is getting closer. Dart is participating again, and there are some interesting projects for students to work on.

The Swift/ObjC compatibility tool project does not use much Dart, but it is about saving package maintainers time by automatically generating Swift/ObjC bindings for Dart packages. Another interesting idea is Testing documentation comments. The goal is to create a tool that can automatically test the examples in the documentation of a package.
