hi,

I just added a simple tutorial to running D betterC on the popular ESP32/esp8266 IoT chip.

referenced with the Rust community's Rust on ESP32.

https://wiki.dlang.org/D_on_esp32/esp8266(llvm-xtensa%2Bldc)_and_how_to_get_started

As esp32 IDF is using newlib as it's libc, the druntime and phobos just simply won't build.

But betterC seems working, I didn't do with a very strong test(actually I don't know if there's betterC test case exists), so, just for fun with your own risk!


And, Can we do some work to support druntime building against with newlib? If this is true, many MCU would have(newlib supports many MCUs) a `real D` running on it.

I'm also interested in a esp32/esp8266 port of druntime/phobos.
If you want to join forces ping me on discord or irc.
