Dart JS 0.6 interrop with Leafletjs resulting in type error


I am trying to use LeafletJS from Dart using the js 0.6.0 interrop library. I have created the following Dart file to map the construction of a basic Leaflet map.

library leaflet;

import "dart:html";
import "package:js/js.dart";

class LeafletMap {
   external factory LeafletMap(Element element);

I then use these classes in my main.dart

import 'dart:html';
import 'package:charm/leaflet.dart';

main() {
   var e = querySelector("#map");
   var m = new LeafletMap(e);

This would be equivalent to the Javascript below which would create and display a map with default configuration.

var map = L.map('map');

The HTML looks like the following and includes the leaflet.js javascript file.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://cdn.leafletjs.com/leaflet/v0.7.7/leaflet.css" />
  <script src="http://cdn.leafletjs.com/leaflet/v0.7.7/leaflet.js"></script>

  <script src="main.dart" type="application/dart"></script>
  <script src="packages/browser/dart.js"></script>
  <div id="map"></div>

The following error is displayed in the browser console:

Uncaught TypeError: L.map is not a function

However, if I use the console directly in the browser, L.map exists as a function. Not sure if I’m using the JS interrop library correctly and would appreciate any pointers.


You face an known issue that is basically about collisions with minified dart2js names.
