Hello everyone,
what if to remove semicolons at the end of each line of code in D like in Python?
Is it worth it?


If you write JS in a professional environment, you will almost certainly be required to terminate every line with a semicolon because it's too easy to write code that behaves in unexpected ways otherwise. If you spend enough time writing Python, you will start to run into cases where meaningful whitespace makes it difficult to write readable, functional code.

Omitting semicolons satisfies a small handful of programmers who don't like having them all over the place, sure, but it alienates everyone who takes development seriously enough that the ambiguity becomes a hinderance.
