The standard documentation for Dart and JavaScript interoperability isn’t great. It refers to the ‘dart:js’ library which although works is a bit verbose to get things done.

For instance, to call a jQuery function, you would need

import 'dart:js';

The dart team has since then released the js package with which you can simply call

import 'package:js/js.dart';

Basically native syntax. Of course you have to add it to the yaml and pub get again.
