digitalmars.D.announce - Reorganization and list of D libraries (300+)

Hi all.

Lurking in this forum I had the feeling that lots of D developers 
tend to rewrite lots of code that could be found in libraries. 
This is not bad per se but I thought that one of the reason could 
have been the current process of library discovery.

For this reason I have edited a list of libraries that could aid 
in this process.

I also considered that the following features could be of 
importance to you:
- License
- Garbage collector
- last modification (automated)

The list is of course not complete and I could not test all of 
the libraries I included.

I welcome you to modify it, open PRs or issues on github.

https://github.com/FraMecca/D_Libraries_Registry

I hope it could lead to a better ecosystem for the whole D 
community.

I'd like to see code.dlang.org to have a new column that explicitely shows the licence being used, and the capacity to search/filter by licence type would be great too.

Even being the wrong Martin :-) I think the DUB registry really needs more and better filters, so that the gems inside can be found easily. (like: Number of Github stars, number of downloads, number of developers and in the future: money donated to this project ...). There has been several attempts but I would like to encourage the D Foundation to put more focus on this. Better ecosystem around third party software means less work for improvement of standard lib. Regards mt.

Agreed. (IMO more important than Elvis operator)

+[something] If the DIP is too complex or big, it will be getting a no from me. I just don't see any of those extra syntaxes being discussed as useful.

So true. I've written code before only to learn later that there was already a library for what I was doing that I just happened to stumble upon. Which would have saved me a lot of time.

Can we make a proposal for a change?

Perfect time to learn. Its a very useful skill to have, even if you don't use it every day.

As far as I understand, the D Language Foundation itself can work on specific projects by the help of scholarship recipients paid by donations. For me I see 3 ways to get enhancement / issues solved: - Work on my spare time on the issue - Motivate others to work in their spare time on the issue :) - Donate to the D Language Foundation Dub / Dub repository are already great products but in my opinion there is still a lot of work to do. Kind regards André

DWT is using the EPL, Eclipse Public License, license. I'm missing the ddb [1] and mysql-native [2] database libraries. There are many list like this for other languages, they're usually called "awesome-<lang>" where <lang> is the language.

I checked awesome-D but it is not focused only on libraries and it is not updated at all. Also, I wanted to highlight the license and the use of nogc I added mysql-native, while I ignored ddb because the project provides no description and no documentation. Maybe a README would be enought to get you through the examples. Also, updated DWT Please send a PR if you feel like the project could be improved

Nice, thanks! I don't like having to hunt for, and sometimes not find, the license of a library to see if it is permissive or not. GC is nice too.
