Usually, only graphs for the top 20 languages are generated on the Tiobe Index, but they were able to generate this for me (not sure if it expires at some point).

In any case, I was happy to see that D has been on the rise for the last few years.

I'm not sure exactly what has contributed to the rise, but what I've noticed the most is a huge improvement in compiler stability and usability. The website and documentation are also looking very good, where they were once hard read and to navigate.

What I would most like to see in the future would be a more complete and simplified set of tools for D.

I believe there should be at least one full-featured tool for each operating system, which includes syntax highlighting, auto-complete, symbol-information on hover, go to declaration, and runtime debugging for D. It should also include at least basic syntax highlighting for C++, and the ability to build and link that C++ code with the D program. I believe this tool should be self contained, and installable with a single click. An end user of the D programming language should never have to know anything about what dependencies are needed or installed for a given addon/extension.

I believe such a set of tools is well within reach. Some existing tools are already very close to what I've described above.

Anyways, congratulations to everyone that's contributed to the trend!

Probably other languages improving rather than D usage declining. 2009 is (approximately) the year that javascript began it's rise up the index (Node.js was released in 2009).

My first thought was that it was related to the D1 -> D2 transition, but that wasn't it. Considering that I had to ask for the graph to be generated though, I figured that it may have been omitted on purpose due to low sample size, i.e. noisy results. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

They have changed way how is index compute. They do this many times in history,  so there is almost zero value in this graph

Clearly the popularity of D is well correlated with U.S. real estate prices. :D

I believe DlangIDE can become such tool.
Runs on all platforms. Small.

Supports it using embedded DCD.

Debugging needs a lot of improvements to became usable.

Project is easy to contribute for D developers since written in D.

Other good canditate is BBasile's CoEdit. It's very much like DLangIDE in that it has roughly the same feature set, at least according to readme. It is also very actively maintained like your project. But it has the disadvantage of being written in Pascal.

I agree with that size thing, the whole DUB package is 40MB with release build. And without the DUB cache even of that sinks to one-third. Under a percent compared to 1.5GB I measured Visual Studio to take!

Tried Coedit some times. It just doesn't start on my old laptop with Linux Mint.
