which one should be used? Which is more up-to-date/feature rich? 
Why have two plugins for a single IDE?

Ahh. I spent an hour trying to get the more popular one working, and I finally made it work, but it was a lot of trouble. Installed it, complained about no workspace-d. Clicked the "Compile workspace-d" option, it cloned the repo and built it. Afterwards complained about no dcd, dfmt, dscanner. "Compile" option didn't work this time, everytime froze during git clone. Used dub fetch to download these libs myself and build them with -b release and -c server/client for dcd. Afterwards took the paths from 'dub list' into the config and finally it worked. The other extension works out of the box, although I couldn't make it autocomplete functions from dependencies.
