Does this mean I can actually build D static libraries, link
them into an NDK shared lib, and use it in a phone app that I
can submit to Google Play?
Yes. Just follow these instructions to generate the standard
library for Android/ARM;
We're still cleaning up loose ends and refining the process
though. I forgot that you need to disable building one module
when cross-compiling the stdlib, as mentioned here:
Then, you can use a variation of these instructions to build D
The problem is those instructions assume you have a ldc2.conf set
up properly, whereas the new ldc 1.4 beta won't do that for you.
I'm looking into adding that.
Basically, you can do what you asked now, but while all the
functionality is there, we're refining the build setup with this
ldc beta process. By the final 1.4 release, it should be really
easy to cross-compile the stdlib and use it, but we're not quite
If you're adventurous, try it out know and let us know what you
think. Otherwise, it will get even simpler soon.
