Is VisualD compatible with M1s?

It's been more than half a year since my last try. Still no luck. The syntax highlighting works, but no autocompletion on M1 Mac. I am using ldc compiler 1.27.1 and VisualD 0.23.2 plugin. Does anyone with M1 have it working?

(facepalming) I meant code-d VSCode plugin of course...

I'm not sure what's broken on M1 right now. Are you on nightly serve-d build? There have been some linker errors introduced recently which I need to fix still to get nightly builds to work again (just unittests broken though because of -checkaction=context)

You could try to compile serve-d from source yourself and put it in code-d, although autocompletion with DCD might still not work on M1 with the precompiled binaries.

Build serve-d:

git clone https://github.com/Pure-D/serve-d.git
cd serve-d
dub build --compiler=ldc2

then try to use it in code-d by setting the user setting d.servedPath to /path/to/serve-d and reloading the window.

Then verify that basic syntax checking works in a simple hello world project (test that you get red squiggly lines for syntax errors)

  • if this doesn't work serve-d fails to run somehow

if that works, try out if auto completion of local symbols work. (define some function or variable named foobar and try to autocomplete it in your main function)

  • if this doesn't work DCD is broken

if that works, import std.stdio and try to autocomplete writeln in your main function.

  • if this doesn't work there is some problem with stdlib import detection

if that works, then DUB packages and build_commands.json should work as well (if using supported feature sets)

if anything in that list doesn't work, send your error log or a link to it here. (VSCode Output Tab -> code-d/serve-d log)

If it's just DCD that's broken you can try compiling that from source as well:

git clone https://github.com/dlang-community/DCD
cd DCD
dub build --compiler=ldc2 --config=server

and setting d.dcdServerPath to the resulting dcd-server binary (in bin directory)

but do reply to here anyway if you needed to create any of these self-compiled binaries.

note: I just saw https://github.com/Pure-D/code-d/issues/395 still depended on dfmt and dscanner rdmd -> $DC -run changes. I have merged those now as with 2.100 and the bundled dub it was possible to replace those in a platform-independent manner, but you might need to clone dfmt and D-Scanner before building serve-d and adding dub local packages:

git clone https://github.com/dlang-community/D-Scanner.git
git clone https://github.com/dlang-community/dfmt.git
dub add-local D-Scanner
dub add-local dfmt
# now run you can compile serve-d (and call dub remove-local for both folders afterwards)

Are there any 'VIM' tutorials for 'code-d/serve-d'?

I compiled successfully, but I don't know how to use it in 'VIM'.
