Google Dart and PhoneGap

The past few weeks I’ve written some Dart then compiled it to javascript and used the phonegap framework.
Dart docs are typical Google style: ever changing and lacking especially when compared with the king of documentation Microsoft.
What is more phonegap no matter the recent efforts is shouting to me “I am an ugly hack please don’t take me seriously” ™ and once again the documentation does not help as it is sparse.
So thank you very much I will stick to native Windows phone and Android development and yes I know kitkat webview is chromium based. Yes performance is a main issue but is the app working as expected in the first place? With phonegap for me it’s no sir. Huge development time wasted avoid at all cost (well,  most of the time 😉
