Want to share the outcome of a vivid discussion today at the Munich D Meetup with you.

Installation of a D Compiler is ok-ish. But sometime you don't want to install it. Sometimes you want a very clean compiler-environment. Sometimes you want to compile your projects in the cloud and not on your local PC.

To ease this a bit I drafted Docker Images for the Compilers (dmd, ldc, gdc, sdc) [1]. Based on this you have a clean compilation environment. And you even could use dub with it. No installation anymore.

Seems to be very useful for testing. I have mostly only the latest stable dmd installed in the system. But need to test against elder versions and other compilers before travis reports that the build fails.
