I don't have anything fancy. I add a Makefile for each project with some
standard Makefile rule-names, and bind these to some function keys.
Most of the rules are just `dub run`, `dub build` etc.

I like doing it this way as I can easily have as complex build rules as
I want, and I can also build from the cli.
