SublimeLinter-contrib-dmd  is a plug-in for the Sublime Text 3
editor . Unlike linters that are based on DScanner, it
actually invokes dmd on the file that is being edited, as you
edit. If dmd finds anything to complain about, an annotation is
shown in the editor: warnings and deprecations in orange, errors
in red. If SublimeLinter (a plug-in dependency) is configured to
show tool tips, the error message pops up after a click on the
annotation (see screen shots ). SublimeLinter offers shortcuts
for jumping to errors and it is possible to postpone on-the-fly
linting or lint only on request.
The advantages of using dmd for linting are:
1. The parser is always up-to-date.
2. Full symbol resolution, including imports.
3. Mixins are expanded.
4. Templates are validated.
5. Deprecation warnings are included.
6. The "did you mean …" assistance appears right where it is most
The plug-in is easily installed from within the editor, as
described on the project page .
Dmd does not always get the column number exactly right, which
can cause the annotation to be misplaced, but that is just a
cosmetic deficiency. I have not tested this on larger code bases
and only on Windows, but I expect it to work on all platforms
supported by Sublime Text 3. Please let me know if you find any
issues. The editor is not free, but it continues to work after
your evaluation period has expired.
On request I can add an option to configure the path to dmd,
currently it expects to find dmd using the system path.
Hope you like it,
