My web.d code did that (and more) two years before vibe.d was
born. And it took it a couple steps further, even generating html
forms from introspection, which I don't think I have ever seen
anywhere else. It is pretty cool but I never really documented
the old web.d, I just used it for work projects and a few trivial
vibe has always had better marketing though, and a more cohesive
presentation. My documentation is more focused on simple tasks
too since I often evolve the complex things as I use it...
I don't think I ever wrote about the reflection stuff, I just use
it as my secret weapon.
Yeah, hard to even tell what's ideas-to-self and what is actually
implemented there. I've gotta do a real write up some day.
I have written about some of the auxiliary features though, like
the EventSource dispatcher
the built-in job scheduler:
and a little bundled key/value session data server:
But yeah.... almost nothing on how to actually bring the advanced
features together. Part of that is because I don't want to
prescribe One True Way, part is because I've been continually
developing this for 12 years and sometimes change my mind on how
to do things (though I very rarely break anything, I still have
code from 2011 that compiles), and part because it works for me
and that's all I really care about.
Still if y'all wanted to work with me I'm open to it, in theory
