Other than syntax coloring for vscode-web i don't think having
the full suite is necessary
I'd rather see more investment being made in improving DCD, there
still lot of areas where it just is bad..
- ``auto data = cast(Data*) myPtr;`` this is basic code and yet
DCD can't figure out what ``data`` is
- ``T get_x(T)(); auto x = get_x!float;`` DCD can't figure out
it's a float
- ``const(int) myInt;`` DCD can't tell me it's a const
There are many more little things like that that just doesn't work
For a language that rely heavily on these features, it should be
And i don't think the D audience is using web based IDE, it's a
That would be a smarter time investment, getting basic things
supported is long overdue
Because right now it's pretty rough compared to the competition
(rust language server with analyzer)
We need retain people in the language, tooling is still rough
decades later, that drives people away..
