Tonights hacking was with stream and heroku. Stream is a Dart web server supporting request routing, filtering, template technology, file-based static resources and MVC design pattern. I just planned on serving static content from heroku using full dart based web server.
Creating a new project called stream-todomvc. Going to use the todomvc from the web-ui project as our content for the stream server. First thing that should be done is adding the dependencies to the pubspec.yaml file.
stream intro documentation goes over some basic configurations and settings. I’m just going to use them for now to get something running right away. The key to note when serving code from the web/ folder in dart projects is having the stream server code in web/webapp/. That way stream can find all your resources with little configuration. With very little dart code we can have static web server going.
Next we build all the static data for our webapp to function. This will include calling build.dart and dart2js. The second step of calling dart2js helps with clients that do not have the dartvm built in.

http://stream-todomvc.herokuapp.com deployed to Heroku

updating local tracking ref 'refs/remotes/heroku/master'
Deploying to heroku in this style is just a good starting point. web-ui and dart in general is still working on a deployment story. The URL for the stream-todomvc will contain out in its location, not very desirable. In the future a buildtool will aid the deployment story for dart.
