Is there something like JRebel for Dart? I know it is early to ask but I figured I would anyway.
If you're asking for the ability to hot-swap and replace code in a running Dart VM, no, we don't currently have anything along those lines, sorry.
When the mirror system is more fully fleshed out, it may support something along those lines, but that's a good ways out I think.

It has been our intent since day 1 to support the ability to change code on the fly in the development environment, including fix and continue debugging, evaluating code in any scope (e.g., object inspectors), changing the shape of a class and updating all instances in the live heap, changing the class hierarchy and all the other Smalltalk style stuff. Anything JRebel can do and more.
I am truly sorry this is taking so long, but the team's priorities are speed and size, and this functionality will take longer to materialize.

I agree this is very important. I've written and spoken about this many times. See my personal blog. It is the past and the future.
Actually, Smalltalk is much better, and has been for a generation. Likewise Lisp machines, Self & Newspeak.
I won't speculate to avoid derailing this thread :-)
