I can give some answers related to iOS, although I'm not that guy 
working on the iOS project.

The simplest would probably be to add an external build step in 
Xcode to compile the D code, which should produce a static 
library. Then just link with that static library. It's a bit 
simpler on iOS since everything is native code and there are 
nothin like JNI that needs to be handled.

For interfacing between the Swift/Objective-C code either the 
`extern(C)` or `extern(Objective-C)` can be used. DStep [1] can 
generate bindings to Objective-C code.

I think it should be possible to implement an application 
completely in D as well.
