vibe.d does not have much lateral support as the most commons
web technologies do. Can vibe.d leverage pre-existing techs
such as php, ruby/rails, etc? Starting from scratch and
having to build a robust and secure framework is really not
the way to go.
A good way to mix different technologies is to use a Apache or
nginx proxy on the same server, so you can start using vibe.d
for some parts and keep the rest at its place.
How is this done? How can it be done smoothly? I'm not sure how
to partition the work load. While, say, some pages might be
served from php, and others from vibe2, etc, it seems like it
would be nightmare to maintain consistency and interactivity.
First you need to run vibe.d and the .php part on the same data
(mysql for example).
Lets say you have a special feature - like latest news, than you
build the rendering of this with vibe.d and the rendering of the
single news are still in php.
Than you may move this to vibe.d later and keep only your back
end, for editing
the content in php. So the most read pages are served by vibe
The "only" problem is you have to build your layout twice,
in php and as diet template. :-(
An other option might be, to start with the admin back end, where
layout is not so critical and add additional features like
statistics or a special dashboard?
