digitalmars.D - Contribution to the D Programming Language

Hi,

I am new to the Open-Source community, and the D programming 
language got me interested. I would really love to contribute to 
this language. I am a Computer Science Major in my third year, 
and I have already done a course in programming languages. I 
implemented a simple prolog interpreter in SML for the course and 
I've been hooked onto the idea ever since. If only someone could 
guide me towards a starting point for contributors to the 
community, it would be really awesome.

Thanks,
Aayush.

The awesome thing about D is, it is still work and progress and you can actively help improving phobos (std. library), dmd/gdc/ldc/sdc (compiler) or the druntime. Everything is hosted on https://github.com/ * https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos * https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd * https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/druntime Well the whole D-Programming Organization: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language Just fork the repo you wanna improve, commit your changes and submit a pull request! That's it! But you can also help the community by writing useful libraries which don't exist yet. Or by writing bindings to C libraries and submitting them to deimos, https://github.com/D-Programming-Deimos/ Possibilities are endless ... with the D programming language :) Btw. whenever you have a problem, D has a really awesome community, you will always find a helping hand, either here (newsgroup d.D.learn) or e.g. on IRC, irc.freenode.net #D - david

Three missing links were to the GDC compiler (A GCC based compiler for the D language frontend implementation written in mixed C++ and C++-safe C): * https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC The LDC compiler (A LLVM based compiler for the D language frontend implementation written in C++): * https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc The SDC compiler (A LLVM based compiler written in D, and now for something completely different!): * https://github.com/bhelyer/SDC The rest is as already said:
 Just fork the repo you wanna improve, commit your changes and submit a pull
 request! That's it!
