vibe.d – high-performance asynchronous I/O, concurrency and web application toolkit

vibe.d is a high-performance asynchronous I/O, concurrency and web application toolkit.

It already contains many supplemental features such as database support to be able to offer a complete development environment.

For more specialized needs, there are also many compatible DUB packages available.

vibe.d is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Full integrated web framework – contains a complete set of tools needed for website and web service development. In addition to a HTTP 1.0/1.1 server, static file serving, an efficient template system, WebSockets, sessions and other features are already integrated. Surrounding features include a markdown filter, MongoDB and Redis drivers, cryptography, natural JSON and BSON support and a simple SMTP client.
  • Automatically generate JSON/REST or HTML form based interface from D classes, removing a lot of work and potential for bugs due to avoiding boilerplate code.
  • Native database drivers – contains built-in support for MongoDB and Redis databases. These drivers provide a default for fast and flexible data storage. More database drivers are available in the DUB package registry, for example a vibe.d compatible MySQL driver.
  • Generic concurrency tools.
  • Graphical user interface integration – fully integrates with the UI event loop, so that it can be used to power applications with a graphical user interface.
  • Uses asynchronous I/O under the hood, but at the same time make it seem as if all operations were synchronous and blocking, just like ordinary I/O.
  • Compact API – common tasks are kept as short and high level as possible, while still allowing fine grained control if needed. By using some of D’s advanced features, typical vibe.d based programs reach a level of conciseness that usually only scripting languages such as Ruby can offer.
  • Integrated load balancer is able to dynamically compile, run and test new processes before switching them live after the code has been modified. This allows for seamless and low-risk changes on live-systems.
  • Exception based error handling.
  • Multi-threading support.
  • Natively compiled code.
