I want to find out all public functions in all modules in a package. Can I do that at compile time?

I think it's not possible.

No, D packages are not closed; anyone can add new modules to them at any time.

You can do something like that:

static foreach (sym; __traits(allMembers, mixin("std.string")))
{
    pragma(msg, sym.stringof);
}

Then you would have to check if sym is a template or function or something else.

You can do something like that:

{
    pragma(msg, sym.stringof);
}

Then you would have to check if sym is a template or function or something else.

This give me all symbols in the package.d file.

static foreach (sym; __traits(allMembers, mixin("std.string")))
{
    // Note that sym is already a string, there is no need to use .stringof
    static if (is(typeof(mixin(sym)) == function))
        pragma(msg, sym);
}

Note, however, that this doesn't pick up on template functions, only non-template global functions. You can detect templates with `static if (__traits(isTemplate, mixin(sym)))`, but in general there is no way to know whether it's a template function, because in order to introspect it you have to instantiate it first, but there is no general way to automatically instantiate a template. Its arguments can be subject to arbitrary signature constraints, and it may in theory be a template function only for a subset of its possible arguments, so there isn't any good way to automatically deduce what template arguments would instantiate into a valid function.  You can only get at a template function if you already have an instantiation of it.
