A Jupyter Notebook kernel written in D.
Currently supports an echo "interpreter" and D Repl. Tested on Arch Linux; should work on other distributions and Windows with minor changes.
To install run ./install.sh This copies the executable jupyterd to /usr/sbin (you need sudo) and makes a directory /usr/share/jupyter/kernels/d/ and copies the kernel.json file to this directory. Change the argv argument in kernel.json from d to echo if you wish to switch to the echo interpreter.
Then just run
jupyter notebook and create a new notebook using the d kernel.
Wait for the kernel to come online - it can take a while (needs to be fixed).
Kernel imports all of phobos using std.experimental.all.
It's pre-alpha, just a bare proof of concept right now.
The existing D repl was written for the commandline and probably you will encounter difficulties running it in a notebook environment.
