In the last weeks I tried to make a draft for a mvc library. I
tried to take advantage of templates, uda and ctfe to make the

production... but anyway.. what do you think?
I noticed you had your own templating library to parse the .dh
files, so I thought I'd mention my project Temple which does
something similar: https://github.com/dymk/temple
It's perhaps a bit more feature complete, and can handle stuff
like capturing blocks of code, render to arbitrary output
ranges, etc. That being said, your solution is very nice; it's
amazing what you can do in so few lines of code in D :)
MongoModel in the model part of crate.d is interesting, and I'm
glad to see there's a more structured way of interacting with
MongoDB than just poking at untyped objects. I think D is still
missing a really good ORM (Rikki's dvorm is a start), but
there's nothing out there that conforms to the "activerecord"
pattern as far as I can tell.
I seen the Temple library and I was thinking to use it, but I did
not had time to look in more details on it. It looks very nice
and I will use it for sure.
The solution that I found with the dh files is just a temporary
and it should be rewritten as soon as I will find a good solution
for the models.
Regarding the models I tried to implement something that comforms
with "activerecord" in the past, but I failed big time... I
intend to do a similar interface for relational databases too,
but I don't know right now how I should treat the joins...
@Rikki nice job with your projects. I did not know about them and
I will take a look on them these days.
