Hi, I was wondering if there is any future plans on adding DUB dependency support to the VisualD MSBuild project type, to still allow for package management using DUB?

I love the integration with MSBuild, it has made things a lot easier when writing a hybrid C++/D application, but my current solution to using DUB packages is to simply download it and either drop the source straight into my project or adding it as a static library. I would love to have the best of both worlds, MSBuild integration with a VisualD options page for DUB dependencies. Is this a feature under consideration for the future?

Great job with VisualD by the way, keep it up!

I've been trying to integrate dub to some extend in the past, but the outcome wasn't satisfactory so far (IIRC it's dependency checks were incomplete and building was slow).

The current recommended workflow is to build Visual D projects with "dub generate", but unfortunately these projects don't cover the usual configurations and platforms.

Maybe it's time to add an msbuild generator to dub. I guess it should integrate dependencies similar to nuget.

Thanks.
