Is this the first time you are trying D?

dub will automatically download any version that is used as a dependency. You don't have to worry about it.

So let's say one project depends on version 2.0.0 of a package, and another depends on 1.0.0. Both will be downloaded, compiled, and used as the appropriate dependency that the project requests.

Compare to a build system where you need to install the dependencies manually, now you have to install the right one to get the right version.

However, keep in mind that dub only deals with D packages, not external dependencies (like libpq, which is required for dpq2).

Instead of thinking of it as "foreach failing," instead consider that the library author did not implement foreach.

It seems the D ecosystem is not immediately obvious to some people. Dub, compilers, and IDEs are recurring issues.

This is stuff that needs to be documented up-front and in-your-face. For example, if we're going to be serious about dub, all code examples on the front page of dlang.org ought to use it.  Invocation syntax should be shown right there on the front page.  It should permeate all documentation and frequently alluded to.

Similarly, if we're serious about code.dlang.org, then it also needs to permeate all code examples on dlang.org throughout.  It needs to be treated as first-class citizen.  Otherwise, it can only be perceived as this nebulous side thing of unclear relevance that people will tend to ignore.

I found dub.json has very important info,
To name three : importPaths , libs , dependencies.
When these are right you have started for 80%.
Without nagging, when you begin you are however lost in the woods and it makes the impression to lose interest completely.
For ease there is : targetName, targetPath, sourcePaths.

What is also quite annoying is links to libraries which are unmaintained.
E.g. sql-libraries where no code check-in has been done for almost ten years.
