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 given addon/extension.

I believe such a set of tools is well within reach. Some existing tools are already very close to what I've described above.

I believe DlangIDE can become such tool.
Runs on all platforms. Small.

Supports it using embedded DCD.

and runtime debugging for D.

Debugging needs a lot of improvements to became usable.

Project is easy to contribute for D developers since written in D.
