Hi I've looked at wiki.dlang.org/IDEs, and I see that Visual D
is linked from dlang.org/download.html. Still I was looking for
personal opinions and experiences beyond hard specs, I wonder
if one of the IDEs is already dominant at least for each OS for
any good reason.
My requirements are quite ordinary: make x64, debug, go to
definition, manage projects, code completion. My platform is
Windows; interested if the choice would be different for Linux,
if the same nice, otherwise I'd prefer to use whatever is best
on each OS.
And second question, is DWT the de facto standard for creating
GUIs? Or are there good competitors.
Sorry if I'm asking something too obvious, though I've looked
around for answers before. And I've also searched the forum but
really equivalent questions were over 2 years old and many
things may have changed.
Gtkd is obviously defacto for Linux ONLY, dlangui for cross
platform app without native feel. But if you want something easy
and flexible with native look and feel on all platforms, well
tested, use LibUI (http://code.dlang.org/packages/libuid). Look
inside the "examples" folder in their Github repository to see
auto hbox = new Box(false).setPadded(1);
