Usually, only graphs for the top 20 languages are generated on
the Tiobe Index, but they were able to generate this for me (not
sure if it expires at some point).
In any case, I was happy to see that D has been on the rise for
the last few years.
I'm not sure exactly what has contributed to the rise, but what
I've noticed the most is a huge improvement in compiler stability
and usability. The website and documentation are also looking
very good, where they were once hard read and to navigate.
What I would most like to see in the future would be a more
complete and simplified set of tools for D.
I believe there should be at least one full-featured tool for
each operating system, which includes syntax highlighting,
auto-complete, symbol-information on hover, go to declaration,
and runtime debugging for D. It should also include at least
basic syntax highlighting for C++, and the ability to build and
link that C++ code with the D program. I believe this tool should
be self contained, and installable with a single click. An end
user of the D programming language should never have to know
anything about what dependencies are needed or installed for a
I believe such a set of tools is well within reach. Some existing
tools are already very close to what I've described above.
Anyways, congratulations to everyone that's contributed to the
