I was wondering,
perhaps this forum could use additional section under Ecosystem,
something like "Projects"? Look at old dsource projects section:
http://dsource.org/projects/ and the forums
http://dsource.org/forums/ . All of that is dead now, as is
dsource, but it looks so exciting. So many projects! Game
engines, scripting languages based on D, web libraries!
Right now, there is no place to share projects being work in
progress. Even if they never go anywhere, it could generate some
nice activity. General is more for language related issues.
Announce works pretty much only for finished projects. Anything
under ecosystem doesn't work because it's for specific types of
projects - compilers, IDEs and GUIs.
Look at dub repository, sort by date added. There are many
projects being worked on in the D community, but they don't have
any visibility while they are in progress. Most of them are
hidden somewhere on github, maybe in some Reddit comment.
I hate to use the R-word, but Rust is one of those languages that
has a lot of visibility and activity based around amateur fun
projects. Many never get finished, but people work on stuff -
console emulators, for fun operating systems. People do the same
for D, but you never even learn about them, because they don't
have a place to share their work.
