I have written one fully-functional(auto-complete etc) IDE 
already for VS, It took me a year to finish everything, so I am 
100% aware how much work it will be required to be done. So at 
this moment I am just checking possibilities which IDE to use as 
a base.

Thx.

you mean a plugin, or? VS itself is the IDE
btw: the buildin debugger of Studio does not work for D stuff - because 
of different Debug-Formats, VisualD got support for pdb-files buildin, 
will also try to come to this state - or just an Editor (which is not an 
IDE)

which programming language does your "IDE" support?

Why don't you extend VisualD to your needs - or is there something
wrong with the curren D source or licence of VisualD?

I mean a plugin (I don't think there is any need to write IDE 
from beginning)

yes, I know, I had a look at VisualD already

it supports Unreal Script (Java-like language), of cause it is 
not so complex as D.

No, One of the option is to extend VisualD and other one is using 
Qt Creator as a base for plugin. Only difference that I have 
experience with writing "Language Packages" for VS and do not 
experience with writing a plugin for Qt Creator

But what I really want to find out if there is any need in any 
IDE or people just happy to use a text editor and a command line 
compiler.

Re: I want to develop IDE for D
A Qt Creator based D IDE would be awesome.

It would have to surpass my Vim D config for me to
actually use it, though.

I don't care about Visual Studio (Windows only),
and Eclipse is way too slow.

Qt Creator is hands down the best IDE I've used for C++ so D 
support in it would be incredible!

I've never seen a language plugin for it though

Extend Qt Creator
Even though Qt Creator and Eclipse are different tools written in 
different programming languages, they still share the approach of 
adding all the functionality by plugins. So, from that point of 
view Qt Creator and Eclipse can be seen more as plugin frameworks 
instead of IDEs.

I hope it is possible to do.

I currently use Mono-D (MonoDevelop addin) and it works really, 
really good.
Probably I don't need anything else but...

But idea about QtCreator + D is really awesome!
I find QtCreator to be one of the best IDEs I used for C++

I've also used Qt Creator for a long time, it's a really great 
IDE with built-in CMake support and debugger. In addition it is 
very fast, maybe I can make myself writing a plugin if there are 
many ppl after it.
