digitalmars.D.announce - gtkDcoding Facelift Launch

Last week, gtkDcoding saw its 50th regularly-scheduled post. 
Today marks the launch of stage two of the facelift we've been 
working toward for the last month. The new features are:

- syntax highlighting for all code snippets,
- screenshots for every example, and
- updated color-coding to more easily associate posts with the 
topics they cover.

Also of note is that each screenshot set includes:

- a shot (or two or three) of the example code in action,
- a shot of the terminal window showing any output, and
- a link (which opens a new browser tab) to the full code example,
- all these are now found within an in-page box directly below a 
page title naming the example, and
- clicking on either of the screenshots displays an overlay with 
a full-size view of the screenshot.

There will likely be minor tweaks happening over the next few 
weeks, but this is the big roll-out. I hope you all like it.

And instead of linking directly to the article, here's a link to 
the main page so you can see the entire facelift:

Thanks, Russel. And thanks for the suggestion of putting in previous/next links. Don't know why I didn't think of that one myself.

Thanks a million, times. I will like a tutorial also on D standard library if you have the time.

You're welcome. That's an good suggestion, but it may take me a while to get there (so many topics piling up as it is). But in the meantime, you might have a look at Ali's book (http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/index.html). It helped me get started. Another is Mike's "Learning D" which I've used as a reference quite often: https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/learning-d Either of those should get you going and, naturally, if you have questions, there's a whole raft of people on here who are always willing to supply answers.

Thanks, Mike, and no worries. It doesn't feel like effort.

Maybe not so minor, but I think it's an important addition... If you look in the upper-right corner of the landing page (https://gtkdcoding.com), there's a link to all the blog posts sorted by topic.

Thanks for catching that. It's fixed now.
