digitalmars.D.learn - Policy-based design in D

implement their example in D with the lack of multiple 
inheritance in mind.

certificate validation on dpaste fails right now?)

The implementation isn't perfect, as I'm not sure how to check 
members of mixin templates so that you  could verify whether 
print() and message() are actually where they should be. How 
would you do that? Is there any use for this kind of thing in D, 
and if so, what would it be? I've hardly dabbled in OOP patterns, 
but the abstraction seems kinda interesting.

Because certificate is expired, dpaste use certs from Lets Encrypt which has short time of validity I have same issue in the past with my websites, now I am using cron to keep it updated 1 0 * * * certbot renew --nginx --keep-until-expiring

Something like this can be used to check if the mixin has a specific member: template hasMixinMember(alias mixin_, string member) { enum hasMixinMember = __traits(compiles, () { mixin mixin_ mix; static assert(__traits(hasMember, mix, member)); }); } struct HelloWorld(alias OutputPolicy, alias LanguagePolicy) if(hasMixinMember!(OutputPolicy, "print") && hasMixinMember!(LanguagePolicy, "message")) { mixin OutputPolicy; mixin LanguagePolicy; void run() { print(message()); } } Note: This method could fail if you do some compile-time reflection black magic inside the mixins. Could also do this: struct HelloWorld(alias OutputPolicy, alias LanguagePolicy) { mixin OutputPolicy output; mixin LanguagePolicy lang; void run() { output.print(lang.message()); } } If "output" / "lang" does not contain a particular member you will get a compile time error at the usage point (although it's not the best message).

Oh, I didn't know you could name mixin template instantiations like that! Thanks for the tip, that makes things work nicely!
