Hey everyone,

I started using D recently and have enjoyed the experience so far.
I've used vibe.d for a web service I wrote for work and I've recently started working on a D binding for Google's new Gumbo HTML 5 parser library that was recently released [1].

Here's a comparison of one of the examples that comes with gumbo:

Original: https://github.com/google/gumbo-parser/blob/master/examples/get_title.c gumbo-d: https://github.com/bakkdoor/gumbo-d/blob/master/examples/get_title.d

I've added some helper methods for searching & dealing with child nodes in the DOM, and it's been really easy as a newcomer to come up with the right compile-time templates. Can't say it's ever been this easy in C++ or any other language.

Let me know what you think of the code. I started reading TDPL, but I haven't gotten very far yet and I've learned mostly by checking out other code, reading the online docs and playing around. The language seems pretty easy to learn so far and I really like the power of it.

The code is on github: https://github.com/bakkdoor/gumbo-d
I've also added it to dub's package repository.

Any feedback is welcome :)
