Good repos to learn D

What are some good examples of pretty large/medium size, good structured repos in D? I'm looking for examples to learn from

Thanks!

Here are some examples of large projects:

* DWT [1]. This is one of the largest D projects I'm aware of. It's a port from Java so it's structured like a Java project. I think it works pretty well for D projects as well. But it's not common to have the reverse domain name package structure like in Java. It's more common to have the top level package be named after the project.

* Mecca [2]. This one is not as large as DWT, but I think it nicely shows how to separate the platform specific code from the platform independent code. Instead of having `version` statements sprinkled all over the code most platform specific code is located in the `platform` packages. Then it provides a common interface that is used by the rest of the project.

* Ocean [3]. This one is quite large as well.

Phobos itself.  I have to say, it's the most readable programming language standard library that I've come across. I've tried to read glibc code before, and I will never ever do that again(!). Phobos, by contrast, is a pleasure to read (except for a small number of dark corners).

I often looked into the D std source code: C:\D\dmd2\src\phobos\std

I would include vibe.d in there of course! https://github.com/vibe-d/vibe.d

Some legacy cruft regarding the module separation, but otherwise really solid and tons of stuff just working.
