Thanks for sharing btw, I've now looked a bit more closely at the 
C++ GUIs you mentioned, and Nana seems to be the only one of 
these 4 that that attempts to be a UI framework, and it appears 
to be slow moving and a bit weird. So it has a long way to go 
before taking on the alternatives (gtk etc).

seems to require you to build your own graphics/input handling... 
which can be a lot of work if you don't have one already (i.e. 
mostly for games).  Dear ImGUI appears to receive some financial 
backing from game studios/Google. FlatUI is backed by Google.

I guess you could port Dear ImGUI to D, might be a good idea 
actually, but you would still be a long way from writing your own 
GUI application.
