Eh, it depends. My lib lets you do as much or as little as you 

About ten years ago, I wrote a framework on top that 
automatically generates javascript/json interfaces as well as 
html form and output UI just given an ordinary D class. Had full 
interop with PHP too... all with no UDAs since they didn't exist 

I never really documented how to use it. Wrote a few examples on 
the forum but nothing formal. I kinda regret that; I've *still* 
never seen anyone else, anywhere, automate as much as it did.

old demo I posted in May 2011:

I can't find the source to that anymore but it would be something 

import arsd.web;

class CoolApi : WebApi {
    enum Color { red, green, etc }
    struct Person { int id; string first; string last; }

    Element getABox(Color c) {
          auto div = Element.make("div");
 = to!string(c);
          return div;

    int addSomeNumbers(int a, int b) { return a + b; }

    Person[] getPeople(int startingId) { return [Person(...)]; }
mixin FancyMain!CoolApi;

That's it - all the html and javascript are all auto-generated.

Nowadays I'm merging all those ideas into cgi.d and actually 
writing about it in my blog. There's a lot in my old 
implementation I didn't like but now that D's reflection is 
better than it was, I have techniques to make it even better.

My new dwidder website is the only public example of the new code 
so far

Still a bunch more I'm slowly bringing together. D has unique 
strengths for web that javascript, ruby, and python can just 
*never* do and we should be pushing the edges to go as cool as we
