Tango for D2: All user modules ported
Hello everyone,

Just wanted to put out an announcement with a progress report on porting effort of Tango. For those that don't know what it is, Tango is a framework library that used to be/is the de facto standard library of D1.

Through the heroic efforts by Igor Stepanov, the initial porting was completed ahead of schedule. All the user modules are now ported (save for tango.math.BigInt, which right now is aliased to std.bigint... this might change in the future). All unittests pass on Linux (using LDC2) and most do on Windows. Additionally, again kudos to Igor, it compiles with -property and -w flags for all of you style purists. Additionally, most of the examples have been also ported.

I have personally used Tango in few KLoC line D2 project and I find it works just as well as it did in D1.

This is naturally not the end, in the coming weeks/months you can expect the following:

-New Makefile based build system
-Documentation creation
-Ironing out of a few const related inelegancies
-Revival of the support for MacOSX and FreeBSD
-Revival of the GDC
-Shared library creation
-Dance lessons

You can download the latest version of it here:

https://github.com/SiegeLord/Tango-D2

FAQ

Does it work alongside Phobos/does it use druntime?

Yes and yes.

Why are you doing this?

Because I want to.


That's all,

-SiegeLord

Very cool. Your doing a great job. BTW, it works on Mac OS X. I have a 
couple of changes I haven't made a pull request for yet.

Please please PLEASE, no makefiles. I just hate them.

Have you considered some alternative(s)?

This is cool.

We're interested for that one, but wonder about instructors?

Hmm... What does this question ask? Whether Tango is inferior to 
phobos2 or whether the whole d2 thing is inferior to d1?

Any comment that you can make on performance. Is it faster or slower 
than D1 ?

I predict reddit posts, from people who didn't fully read the post, claiming 
that D2 now has two std libs in 3...2...1...
