Personally I'll say if you're on Windows, use VisualD+Visual 
Studio for full blown IDE support cus its currently been updated 
with more capabilities. However its too heavy IMO.

Next is VS Code with fairly good D support...dub integration is 
top notch. That's the most used editor I think

I personally use sublime quite often too. Its either vs code or 
sublime for me.
