I have not used Code-D, but I am using TextMate with DCD 
integrated. It has no problem with the DMD project. But it only 
supports go-to-definition, autocomplete and showing documentation 
for symbols.

When opening a project which contains a dub.sdl/dub.json file, 
the editor reads the import paths. Then it opens a new instance 
of DCD (one per project) and passes the imports paths to it.

Yeah, VisualD has a huge advantage since it's now using the DMD 
frontend for these things. For example, DCD does not support 
UFCS, which is really annoying.
