Building for multiple platforms

I maintain an open-source project written in D and I use DUB for building and my compiler backend is DMD. My dub.json file is rather simple: https://github.com/neilsf/XC-BASIC/blob/master/dub.json

I offer pre-built binaries for Linux x86, Linux x86_64, Windows and Mac OS.

I'm only doing this for a year so I am still quite a beginner in D and my workflow is the following when building the project:

1. Launch a VM using VirtualBox
2. dub build
3. Repeat for each platforms

The above is a painfully slow process. Is there any way to make it simpler and faster?

Any suggestions are warmly appreciated.

Since your project is already on GitHub, I think the easiest solution would be to use GitHub Actions [1] + setup-dlang action [2] + upload-release-asset action [3]  to automate the whole process.

P.S. Your project looks quite interesting! Best of luck!
