GtkD allows for "reactive" UI.

There is also Qt, I haven't tried any of the D bindings to Qt, but given Qt is
event loop based I am sure it allows for "reactive" UI as well – it definitely
does using Python/PySIDE2.

GTK+ doesn't have the equivalent of the stage/engine of QML. QML is Qt's
version of JavaFX, so you do not need a browser to get a dynamic reactive UI.
