Hi everyone!

I'm a D newbie tying to move beyond the tutorial stage into checking out apps coded by D experts, so I checked out Awesome D at
https://github.com/zhaopuming/awesome-d/blob/master/README.md

Are there any other similar repos that D forum folks can recommend ??

Thanks !

I highly recommend reading Phobos source code.  Except for a few dark corners, Phobos code is actually surprisingly readable for a standard library, and you get to learn a lot of what makes D, D.

Agree with this, I often dive into Phobos code when people ask question about behavior of certain functions and usually it's pretty straight forward to understand, even for functions you have never used or seen before.

Its something I only recently came to KNOW its how to become good at advanced D.

I should say this only clicks after gaining a fair understanding of some core language semantics and syntax...templates, UFCS, ranges especially.

I will recommend you check out the Wiki too (https://wiki.dlang.org/)

I'm working on getting started guide for newcomers that summarizes the D ecosystem (including unofficial resources) that are scattered all around. Hopelessly It'll close a bit of that gab.

DMD has some good code and bad code (the backend is the stuff of nightmares in places). Worth looking at both to get a feel for the capabilities of the language.

"D idioms" is a really cool list of D tips and tricks, and also mentions some external resources.

You might be interested in the #projects channel on the D discord.
