RDUB is a front end for DUB, a D language build tool. It's 
designed to build a single source file specified on the command 
line, without having to edit the dub files: dub.json, dub.sdl, 
src/app.d, source/app.d

https://code.dlang.org/packages/rdub

This tool is great for running examples and building/testing 
small projects! It's used in my other projects, dlang-beginners 
and dwtlib.

$ rdmd rdub -h

rdub is a front end for DUB - a D language build tool

     rdub                 = run dub with defaults \src or 
\source\app.d

     rdub C:\path\foo.d   = run dub as follows:

     1. Copy C:\path\foo.d to src\foo.d
     2. Ask before deleting all other files in \src - avoids more 
than 1 main().
     2. Run dub to build and run src\app.d
     3. Pass all args to dub, except: -h or --help

     Requires: dub.json or dub.sdl must have name "exename" and 
targetType "executable"

Console Example

$ cd examples

examples-$ rdmd rdub -y console\hello

Performing "debug" build using dmd for x86.
example ~master: building configuration "application"...
Linking...
Running .\example.exe
Hello World.

What advantage does this have over `dub --single`?

Great question, Mike! The advantage is that rdub does not require a recipe comment in the source file. Many projects have standalone examples, few with recipe comments. With rdub, you just enter the command and it runs, no need to edit the source or dub.sdl I'm still learning D, so if there is a different way to use --single, please let me know! Ref: https://code.dlang.org/getting_started From what I can tell, the --single requires a recipe comment in the source file: /+ dub.sdl: name "hello" +/ Here is what I get without the recipe comment in the source file: dub --version DUB version 1.2.0, built on Jan 22 2017 dub run --single hello.d The source file must start with a recipe comment.
