I wrote a little working demo that shows how to use D inside

Judging by looking at that build script, sure that's simpler
than what I read you had to do some time back! You had to
switch to some legacy llvm and compile the indermediate first
to C and only then to Asm.js.
This looks like powerful enough for normal use. You still miss
DRuntime but a lot better than using C to do the same. Perhaps
even better than Typescript in some cases?
Can someone explain the reasons why LDC can't compiles to
webasm with the DRuntime?
Nobody has done the work to port it, though someone has expressed
interest and opened an issue for it:
Regarding porting druntime, I'm told by some here that there are
some issues with the GC and thread-local storage because of the
particular wasm instruction set, but I've never looked into it.
