Considering the circumstances you mentioned, I'd say either don't 
publish it or simply make it a public GitHub repository with 
these limitations stated in the readme. Considering there are 
already a derelict binding [1] and a port [2] for imgui out 
there, putting much work into making your code useful for others 
might not be worth it.

If you want to publish it on Dub (the D package manager,, I'd encourage you to polish it up and 
test it so it's up to par with other bindbc packages and useful 
for others. However, it's not like Dub currently has a high 
standard (you can find lots of low-effort packages in there) and 
ultimately it's up to you to decide how / whether you share your

Assuming you used this:
It says "license": "MIT"
Which allows you to modify and redistribute as long as you keep 
the MIT license text in there.
The author of that repository didn't put an MIT license text in 
there, but considering it's a simple header translation I doubt 
you can get sued over it.
