Just a tip for anyone struggling with code-d on Windows - try the 
VSCode Portable mode - 
https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/portable . I had a lot 
of issues with code-d installation (dcd etc. didn't want to 
install properly), with portable version everything installed out 
of the box. At first I thought it's just the plugin that is 
broken, because I had no code completion or anything. Now it 
works. Not the best long-term solution because you have to update 
it manually, but it's better than nothing when everything else 

I even got the debugging working, with C++ debugger, but still, 
it gives me all the info I need :)

p.s. D could use a "recommended starting tools" section on Wiki 
or something. It's hard to find a recommendation for IDE and 
plugins that will just work anywhere on the website. Editor/IDEs 
list mention multiple obscure IDEs/tools with dead/obsolete 
plugins. Good luck finding a guide on how to set up debugging D 
on windows without using VisualD.
