I wouldn't write off Nim here. Nim could be an option for iOS and 
Android development if you can compile it to C libs or some sort

Something like GraalVM? Write in any language you like and you 
can interact with any language you like, but I don't really see 
it for D. Nim, perhaps. I don't know.
