        I fail to see the appeal of D when there are other languages such as Rust and Python.

          D doesn't suffer from insane politics (rust) and it's a properly compiled language (python)

              What are the insane politics?

                Python consumes insane amount of memory for its vm, its a lot slow to start..
                On Other end, Lua, consumes very low resources, and now Pallene, consumes even less and its faster..

                  But Python can be used as an alternative to C and D when you run things in user space and performance and memory consumption isn't important. Then you can use Python and it interfaces good with C libraries, so its an productive way to throw things together.

                  Lua on the other hand isn't used a an alternative to C or D and more suitable as a embedded scripting language within an application.

                  When performance and memory is an important aspect, there are alternatives to C and D such as Rust, Go and Swift.

                    Maybe you didn't look hard enough so just parrot popular opinions i.e praising popular languages and badmouthing less popular ones.

                    Apologies to readers, my post is as devoid of any substance as the OP is.

                    IMO, D is a great language with some issues.
