Using the docker image just makes it so that you don't have to do the builds yourself. The docker image works on multiple OS. I've built Joakim's stuff myself and used the docker image and the docker image saves time if you're just wanting to take a quick look. > > Also, using this stuff, is there a way for the D application to call into > Android's API? Regarding Android's API there is the NDK. NDK exposes a cut down version of the Linux/posix APIs and JNI for interfacing with the VM, the app still runs in its own sandbox and you can call Java code or have Java call your code. DlangUI has some android code. Check out native-activity  for accessing the screen and sensors natively (it seems to be the most popular native example. : https://github.com/googlesamples/android-ndk/tree/master/native-activity
