Hello, I've written a short tutorial on how to write a D Vibe.d web application targeting the raspberry Pi.
I'm a newcomer to the D community so any suggestion is really appreciated.

Tutorial at https://github.com/pander86/raspberry_vibed

Bye,
Andrea

Thx. Just some notes:

* 'A tutorial to build a vibed web application on raspberryPi' - it's actually *for* a Pi, as it's cross-built on an x86_64 host.
* Building *on* a Pi should be possible with the prebuilt armhf LDC package, although I don't know if it has enough RAM to be really usable.
* Cross-compiling druntime/Phobos can be skipped by simply using the prebuilt libs from the armhf package.
* Similarly, it may be easier to install other dependencies directly on the Pi and then copy the libs to the cross-compiling host.

Excellent work and thank you for publishing this.  I'd suggest also to post an accompanying blog post if possible (Medium or wherever you like to blog) as this helps spread the word a bit about D and also use of D for embedded systems programming.

I also like that you have used ArchLinux ARM.  I'm going to put out an open call for help to find someone willing to take on the task of an ldc2 package for ArchLinux.  If the package makes it into AUR even as a community package, Kevin from ArchLinux ARM will pull it into the AUR packages for ARM targets, and I can usually twist his arm if there's something special needed for a particular platform.  I've written up an issue to track on behalf of our local Dlang meetup: https://github.com/truedat101/dlang-sv-community/issues/57

It's been in there for awhile:

Seems to be regularly updated:
