Building D projects / scripts is easier than you think. I personally use VSCode and its build-in terminal. Create a dub project with "dub init" and then type "dub build" in your VSCode terminal. Easy.
If you want to build D project using VSCode menu, install "D Programming Language (code-d)" and "D Language utility extension pack" plugins. Then via "Terminal" -> "Run build task" you will get a relevant drop down menu with building you project.

Additionally, here is a post I wrote on how to build D projects and use external libs: https://tastyminerals.github.io/tasty-blog/dlang/2020/03/01/how-to-use-external-libraries-in-d-project.html

Oops, that was intended as a "reply". But a new thread was created, hmm.
