Hello,

I'm just recently getting back into programming, studying D as a new language.
I know that D has access to C libraries.

What would be a good choice of graphics library to use? given that it must allow commercial use and be opensource, so no GPL.

I wouldn't want to use anything in C++, preferably it would be in D but C could
work too.

Do all libraries work with the LDC and therefor Emscripten?

games? Try https://github.com/schveiguy/raylib-d
example (transliteration of C): https://gist.github.com/jrfondren/7459713e2a4ad8d62d297abd4b0949d8

GUIs? try https://gtkd.org/
examples at https://gtkdcoding.com/

others? try 'dub search graphics'

I looked at GTKD, maybe a possible solution. It looks
like you've been about to use the first library you mentioned
well, but in its description it says some components are broken.

The LGPL doesn't require an open source copyright for linked works,
according to wikipedia, but as I read through the license it made
me feel confused, which may not be too difficult. I don't think
I understand it easily.

No, some links are broken. The code was resurrected from a guy who deleted his github account. We have the code, but not the other stuff linked (e.g. github wiki pages).

Rereading it says "many things in here are broken". By "here" I meant, this readme file. Oops, I can see how that was poorly worded, sorry!

Wow, I see. I was just perusing a source file there, looks like there
are lots of comments to explain things. It still may be difficult for
me if nobody can spoon feed it.

All the comments are copied directly from the original library. So you can use the very excellent and numerous resources for the C raylib library to help you.

I also highly recommend Ki Rill's D game development youtube series that uses raylib.

i have code for basically everything imaginable

http://arsd-official.dpldocs.info/arsd.simpledisplay.html

is kinda comparable to the SDL library.

I blogged about the vector graphics thing yesterday
http://dpldocs.info/this-week-in-d/Blog.Posted_2021_09_13.html#what-adam-is-working-on

that nanovega module is comparable to html5 canvas.

(though i wrote that with the assumption that most the readers already know what I'm talking about)

I also have the minigui library. You can click navigation links on the left of the thing.

ldc yes, emscripten idk. But my libs I did partial ports for
