Hello, and merry Christmas! (a bit late, but whatever)

At the end of March of this year, I had made a post [1] about this project, aimed at helping with D development on various editors (VSCode, Atom, Sublime text, vim...) [2].
In a nutshell, it's a bit like serve-d [3], albeit with fewer features, and focused more on being 'plug and play': a single binary with no dependencies, can be installed without being compiled on most OS's, automatically updates itself and tries to adapt to different dmd/ldc installations.

At the end of March it was at v0.1.5, which was primitive, and quite terrible in a lot of ways. I've recently released v0.20.1, and after 19 minor versions, it is certainly in better shape (or less terrible shape, depending on how you see it) than it used to be.
If anyone was curious about it at the time, but put off by its numerous flaws and lack of features, it should be more usable by now.

Some of its most notable changes since then include:
- Binary releases for the update system, replacing the previous method of recompiling itself and creating a black hole swallowing your RAM
- Tweaks to make it usable on FreeBSD with the Linux compatibility module
- Better integration with DFMT, D-Scanner and DCD, leading to new features and enhancements such as: linting, finding definitions, finding references, symbol renaming, listing module and workspace symbols, formatting without replacing the whole document, range formatting, local variable highlighting
- Better support for projects that don't use Dub, with detection of folders named `source` or `src`, and automatic importing of a project's git submodules
- Better detection of drumtime and phobos installation paths
- Fewer crashes

Happy coding!

This is an excellent update--the update Just Works™ with VSCode on my mac, and functions very nicely too. Thanks!

I might suggest that you perhaps rename the VSCode extension to remove "VSCode" from the name (as it's redundant) and add "D Language" (because the current name makes it a bit hard to discover).

You're welcome; it's a relief to hear that, as I don't have a mac to actually test it on macOS!

Yes, I'll probably do that in its next release.

+1, It's a great piece of software, so thank you.

I'm using it  on Mac also, when I'm not using vim: works like a charm!

Nice! Great work!

How does DLS compare to the features of DCD?

I'm using DCD through my beloved Emacs. Is there a more powerful Emacs+DLS-solution ready for use?

DLS actually uses DCD as a library. There is some custom handling to be able to find multiple declarations for methods with multiple overloads and such (DCD will only send one), and some code to try to find all references to a symbol in a project (which is also used for symbol renaming).

However, it doesn't use the latest DCD 0.10 version yet, so standalone DCD is probably still the best regarding autocompletion.

I don't know.
There seems to be 2 language client extensions for Emacs : lsp-mode [1] and eglot [2]. I'm not sure how Emacs' packages are configured since I've never used Emacs; but it looks like lsp-mode would require a small custom package to glue everything together, while eglot, according to its README, can be configured to add more servers manually, with a line like:
`(add-to-list 'eglot-server-programs '(foo-mode . ("foo-language-server" "--args")))`
I haven't looked into Emacs yet, maybe I'll do that in the coming days.

I looked into lsp-mode a bit more, and actually, after installing it, its dependencies and d-mode, a few lines of configuration in Emacs' init file are enough apparently:

(require 'lsp)
(add-hook 'd-mode-hook #'lsp)
(lsp-register-client
  (make-lsp-client
    :new-connection (lsp-stdio-connection '("~/.dub/packages/.bin/dls-latest/dls"))
    :major-modes '(d-mode)
    :server-id 'dls))

After adding this, and installing DLS (`dub fetch dls; dub run dls:bootstrap`), it should be working.

Can dfmt be disabled completely? I think I tried this before way back and it couldn't. I don't really want auto formatting of my code.
