A bank for the wealth of D

I have discovered D for almost two years now. My general option is that D is an excellent language. It is a language design for a programmer that focus on reality and provide the programmer with a wealth of tools the programmer need to succeed within a short time.

I am really in love with D but I discovered the wealth of D is known by only a few. I am gone through almost all D books e.g learning D, programming in D, the D programming language, template tutorial, the D cookbook etc. These books just scratch the surface of the wealth of D.

The problem is that only programmer with a strong background in C, C++, maybe Java, C# etc really utilized the power of D. For the average programmer, who is not vast in programming, he considers D beautiful tools to play with but not use in real production.

I will be happy if the D community can come out with a plan to write an extensive tutorial on all aspect of D covering all modules in the standard library and valuable third-party libraries such as GTKD, dlangui, vibe-D etc. Contribution can be made for people who are willing to undertake such a task. The tutorial should also cover D tools in details and their uses in different Os
The result is that newcomers can easily grap the concepts of D and use it in production which in turn we increase the adoption of D giving that we have a vibrate community already

I have checked all resources covering D. But I am not satisfied.

The community will have to put energy together to make a pro D plugin for IntelliJ, eclipse at least. I Know such plugin exist but they are not really working well. Today on window only serve-d and code-d and visual-D are reliable

I wrote from a heart with deep concern of D. please be constructive in your reply and suggestion

This is what it comes down to. The 'community'. Most people work on D for free, and like with everything in life, you get what you pay for. It is unreasonable to expect a language mostly built by volunteers and donations has the same support and help resources as big, established platforms supported by big international corporations.

Sounds like duplication of effort. Most effort should probably go to projects like language servers, because the results can be easily reused for other platforms. Also, define "pro D plugin". D language design mostly disallows the kind of IDE support like you'd have for Java or C# (how do you rename a variable, if this variable doesn't exist until compile time, or it's name is stitched together with mixins).
