1. Keeps data in the %APPDATA%/Roaming folder. Connecting my
computer to the company network means that AD will sync
zillions of files on the company profile server. This issue is
4 years old: https://github.com/dlang/dub/issues/229
Have you put forward a pull request to fix it, and tests
4 year old issues just mean no-one cares about it enough to do
4 year old pull requests is time to fork the project with a new
team of developers.
2. It's painfully slow.
3. As a library provider, you have a lot to learn about
configuration file format (2 formats).
Neither of which are really acceptable. :-(
I wrote a massive decimal library. 90% of reported problems were
not about the library itself, but about the fact that does not
compile with dub, does not run with dub, dub doesn't recognize
package.d and so on. I invested a lot of time in providing a
(http://rumbu13.github.io/decimal/doc/decimal.html). Guess what's
the last issue? Documentation is not visible in the dub registry
4. Not integrated in Visual Studio. I know, I am a lazy and
convenient Windows user and the small black window called cmd
scares the sh*t out of me.
Isn't that a "create a VS plugin" problem?
Personally, I don't use dub. If I need some library, I download
and add it to my library import path. The only way that dub will
convince me will be a right click context menu on my VS project
entitled "Manage DUB packages". It's an productivity issue: I
just press F5 to debug my project, why should I go to the command
line and type manually what I want?
