Great article! How about making a blog post for the DBlog out of this? --- A few comments:

The MediaWiki notation for links is [link title] - not Markdown. Pandoc can convert between markdown and MediaWiki.
 This means that all library path does not includes libssl, 
 libcrypto, libz. You need to find or build a toolchain with 
 extra lib built-in, or, just cross-compiling the desired c 
 library and install to your toolchain sysroot path.
You can disable ssl completely by adding `versions "VibeNoSSL"` to your dub.sdl (or `versions: ["VibeNoSSL"]` to dub.json)
 If you download LDC2 standalone release from github page, say: 
 [ldc2-1.8.0-linux-x86_64.tar.xz](https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/download/v1.8.0/ldc2-1.8.0-linux-x86_64.tar.xz)
 we need a little bit tricky thing to do:
The recommended way is to use the official install script (https://dlang.org/install.html) curl https://dlang.org/install.sh | bash -s ldc
 $ vim test.d
better use sth. like this, s.t. copy/pasting is easy: cat > test.d << EOF ... EOF

I'm not OP, but I changed some of the language and fixed the links.

 curl https://dlang.org/install.sh | bash -s ldc
I changed the LDC install instructions to the curl method I think this reads better now. This was a great idea for a tutorial! Now all we need is a blog post...

For Fedora I found below link to install `gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf` https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/lantw44/arm-linux-gnueabihf-toolchain/

Just a little tip, but I would recommend avoiding giving install instructions that vary from platform to platform. The problem is that 2 years down the line, when someone discovers this tutorial, they may discover that the instructions are no longer applicable. That makes the entire tutorial seem outdated. Also, the instructions are hard to verify for contributors, since they probably already installed the programs, so they can't tell if the instructions are outdated or wrong. Instead, I would recommend giving relevant links to install instructions provided by the program/package creator. That way the instructions are always up to date

All these instructions are not tied to a specified version, it should work for the future. Linux Distribution like fedora/debain/ArchLinux will not change such a package name for installing arm toolchain, as the toolchain package is not like libpng, you may have libpng11 libpng1.2 or what ever, it's just solid package names.
