Usage via DUB
The recommended way to use vibe.d is to use DUB.
Simply add "vibe-d" as a dependency to your project and DUB will automatically download the latest version (upgrading can be done by running
dub upgrade). See the first steps for more details.
Current release version
This is the current official release version. Note that although this release is considered to be reasonable stable, it is still considered beta quality. If you stumble over any issue, please visit theissue tracker and see if it is a known problem or add an entry for it. We will try to fix all issues as fast as possible.
The ZIP package is suitable for all supported operating systems. Simply extract and either use as a DUB package (using "dub add-local") or perform a manual build if desired (see first steps for some details).
If you are running a Debian or Arch based Linux distribution, you can use the packages below to benefit from an automated install process. However, please note that this way of installing vibe.d has factually been superseded by using DUB, as noted above.
TheArch User Repository contains a PKGBUILD for building a Packman package. To install, get the tarball from the package page and thenbuild and install the package. Please test and vote if you are running Arch Linux.
Latest development version
You can download the latest development version directly from git. Note that this version, while containing the latest and greatest features, can also be especially unstable and might not even run. This version is only recommended for development and if you need a certain feature that is not contained in the current release version.
Note that you have to have the currentD compiler installed to run the development snapshot.
Alternatively, you can also
$ git clone git://github.com/rejectedsoftware/vibe.d.gitor add a
"vibe-d": "~master"dependency to your project's DUB package.json file.
