For OpenCL I develop and maintain DCompute:

It has a much beautified interface to OpenCL (and is mostly consistent with its CUDA interface). You can also write kernels directly in D, however this requires that LDC is built against my fork of LLVM: https://github.com/thewilsonator/llvm

It's still in dev but should be usable. Please let me know if you have issues using it.

I saw your library before, but it looked like it is ONLY for native D on GPUs. I looked at it again, and don't see any documentation or example showing that it works with standard OpenCL kernels written in C.

Yeah its a wrapper for OpenCL so as long as the names and signatures of the symbols match it should work.

p.s. since you seem to be a green team guy, you might not know that llvm optimization sucks on AMD. I use -legacy when building my kernels to get the good old compiler.

"green team guy"?

It that with the OpenCL C compiler? DCompute goes through SPIR-V for OpenCL (although it would be nice to support SPIR. Unfortunately the official version SPIR 2.0 is based of is not supported by LDC), I dont know if this makes a difference. It would be nice to eventually support AMDGCN et. al. at some point but I don't have the time at the moment.
