How much speed do you need? I doubt you really need every last 
millisecond, at which point ease of development takes over.  
Instead it might be better to look at which third party libraries 
you need. D has got most you need but you might end up needing 
something which isn't there. If you are ready to code that 
yourself then go for D for sure.

If the app stays small that can work but you can also look at 
something a bit more modern. Angular, react, vue or svelte, there 
are plenty to pick from.

Of course. You just end up writing an rest or graphql backend in 
D and connect it to a frontend.
