D need SDC compiler to mature to improve tooling.

There's a new build (v1.11) for the Intellij D Language plugin:

https://github.com/kingsleyh/DLanguage/releases

which should be in the plugin repo soon:

Does it still rely on DCD?
If yes, then it still sucks. Shitty to set up, buggy in usage, bad and horribly slow autocompletion.

Thanks @Hackerpilot, you created good software that is good at what it has been made for.

But unfortunately all those lazy "pro-user" abused it for simply bodging it into their favorite IDE wich caused combined with their lack of skills a total disaster of D support.

Moreover, as most of those plugins are also written in D, no new user, who is searching for a good IDE, will ever be interested in contributing to those projects as they would have to write D code for creating good IDE support, but without a useful IDE. If combating the horror leads to even more horror, noone will ever do it - for comprehensible reasons.

I don't think that problem is in DCD, because in Xamarin Studio it works instantly, without any lags.

That's because it does NOT use DCD.

I am agree with your opinion too. I just would like to start with D from .NET and Java world. Two days I am searching some working IDE.
So powerful language and nothing about IDE.
My exp are (Windows 10, 64 bit):
1. DLangIDE - amazing, natural, simple and fast. DCD works till first start debugging
(Linux Mint too)
2. VisualD - can not even build HelloWorld Enterprise :) app (path problem)
3. TextAdept - DScanner works, DCD failed to work
4. ....
Just would like to ask where people write code?

With Java, I can't get by without an IDE anymore, but with D I just don't need one. I feel they actually get in my way. Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code do just fine.

I'm using the Visual D plugin on Windows. After having used Visual Studio and Qt Creator for C# and C++ I am satisfied.

Yeah I personally think having an IDE that holds an environment similar to a Java IDE it would be pretty nice. Something like IntelliJ for D (the plugin is alright but it isn't as fast as writing Java in IntelliJ when I write D. Right now I use Eclipse with DDT since it has a nice auto completion feature and some other stuff. It's pretty good, but creating D files is kinda weird. You don't create a D class, you create a blank file that you have to manually set the extension type to and is in a folder rather than something like a package/module. I tried some other IDEs that were on the Wiki but they either a) didn't work or b) weren't that good. With the IntelliJ plugin (which seems pretty good in the screenshots) it crashed the IDE and produced a bunch of errors.

I think if D wanted to attract more attention or appeal to the Java crowd, they could quite easily do that and gain a lot more users if they were to create an IDE that was very similar in terms of assisting the user in typing automatically like almost any popular Java IDE. I really hope an IDE is released that is what I'm describing and if their isn't I'll have to look into making one.
