I want to develop IDE for D
Hi Guys

I started learning D language and I am so happy that it is so
powerful as C# or Java. But it seems there is no fully-fledged
IDE for D language yet. And I would like to spend my time to
write one, I was thinking about using Visual Studio or Qt Creator
for it.

I would like to ask if there is any need in writing IDE at this
moment?

P.S. I already have experience writing IDE in Visaul Studio (as
example have a look at full-fledged)

i would suggest you take a few steps back. scan the newsgroups for 
information about what people in the d community expect from an _ideal_ 
d ide. there were actual a couple threads about this lately. i'm 
confident you  might want to rethink some of your own ideas after 
reading those. ;)

somebody also announced a mini- ide written in d the last days and might 
be looking for help. you can find it here: https://github.com/dnewbie/dpj

You may want to check out VisualD which is a visual studio addon IDE that
is extremely handy and functional.

A D IDE for only windows while D is use by Windows,Apple and Linux is a
really a bad idea

my 2 cents

DDT, a plugin for Eclipse is an alternative.

Sometimes people focus on Windows programming.

He mentioned Visual Studio and C#, so that's why I brought up VisualD.

That's not true.

For example, SharpDevelop started as a Windows-only C#, VisualStudio clone.
Someone took that codebase, ported it to linux and MonoDevelop was born. 
A Crossplatform C# (and now D) IDE.

That's how Open Source works. Someone starts a poject, not what others 
want or need, but rather what the starter of the project want to code on!

Yes, I am using it at this moment but it seems not all IDE
functions are working for me. and this is main reason why I want
to write fully-fledged IDE.

Tried it, but because of little experience with Eclipse I didn't 
manage to install   it.

don't talk about it - just do it - and you will see how many months( or 
years) of hard work is needed to get even to the state were VisualD 
currently is

try even to come up with a list of needed features for a better IDE - 
the list will become very long

good luck
