dstructtotypescript is a program that created typescript 
interfaces/enums out of D
structs/enums.

The web framework vibe.d was very good at serializing data into 
json.
Typescript allows the user to have a typed version of
javascript. Which means the user has to keep two version of the 
same structure
in sync. That is tedious and error prone task. 
dstructtotypescript alleviates
this problem as its automatically generates the typescript 
interfaces for the
user.

## Example

Given a D two structs (test/teststruct.d):
```D
module test.teststruct;

struct Other {
	string id;
}

struct Obj {
	string name;
	int id;
	float value;
	int[] ids;
	int[5][] ids2;
	Other other;
	Other[] others;
	Other[][5][] others2;
	bool[][5] bools;
}

enum Colors {
	red = 0,
	blue = 1,
	green = 4
}
```

```bash
dstructtotypescript -i test/teststruct.d -p 
test/testfileprefix.ts -s Obj -s Colors -s Other -d
```
will create the following typescript interfaces:
```
// THIS FILE WAS GENERATED DO NOT MODIFY
/// <reference path="teststructprefix.ts" />
interface Obj {
	name: string;
	id: number;
	value: number;
	ids: number[];
	ids2: number[][];
	other: Other;
	others: Other[];
	others2: Other[][][];
	bools: boolean[][];
}

enum Colors {
	red = 0,
	blue = 1,
	green = 4
}

interface Other {
	id: string;
}
```

test/testfileprefix.ts is a file which contains is prefixed to 
the resulting
.ts file

Update:

It now also generates functions that call the vibe.d rest service 
in typestrict.
