digitalmars.D - Installing vibe via DUB

reply "Greg Knapp" <virtual.greg gmail.com> writes:
Hi,

I'm just starting out with D and vibe, apologies if this is the 
wrong place to ask vibe questions.

After installing DUB (dub-git on Arch Linux) and specifying 
vibe-d as a dependency of my project in 'package.json', I ran 
'dub upgrade' and vibe was installed. However, I can't start vibe 
as the bin file isn't found. It's installed local to my user with 
vibe in ~/.dub/packages/vibe-d-0.7.15/bin

This the recommended way to install vibe according to docs on the 
site. How have others installed vibe?

Thanks in advance.

I believe that this is the correct place to ask: http://forum.rejectedsoftware.com/groups/rejectedsoftware.dub/ but if the main D forums were the place to ask, D.Learn would be better. Regardless, when you install dependencies via dub, I believe that it normally installs them in the .dub directory of your project, which works just fine for libraries (which I thought that vibe was, though I've never used it). I don't know how you'd deal with calling programs that were installed as executables. Regardless, the link I gave you is to the dub-specific forums, so while some folks here may be able to help you, the folks there definitely can. - Jonathan M Davis

You'll have to take that up with the rejectedsoftware folks. It's their forum. The main D forums are set up to use newsgroups as their backend while allowing users to also interact via a web forum and e-mail, but AFAIK, they are unique in that regard. So, I wouldn't expect anyone else to be doing that unless they used the same software - which the rejectdsoftware folks could do, but it's up to them. On a related note, I believe that Vladimir was looking making the main D forums' software use vibe.d, but I don't know where he is with that. - Jonathan M Davis

I typically access the Rejected Software "forum" fine through NNTP, like with the D groups themselves. It appears to work fine. -Matt Soucy

Vibed.org forums are similar but use own vibe.d-based front-end instead of DFeed.
