Lightweight ACME Client written in the D computer language

This project is yet another Let's Encrypt client. It has the following properties.

  • The main artifact is a D static library.
  • Functionality only supports creating and updating certificates using http challenges.
  • All code runs 'in process', i.e., no processes are spawned.
Building and Installing

Building requires dub, openssl and curl. On Debian based systems this will install them.

apt-get install dub libssl-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev

On Red Hat based systems this will do it.

yum install dub openssl-devel curl-devel

To build and install run:

dub build

To run against the Let's Encrypt staging environment generate your makefiles with this.

dub build -c acme-staging
Let's Encrypt Credentials

To use any Let's Encrypt client you need to sign requests with your Let's Encrypt's account's private key. This library uses a private key in PEM format. If you want to use an existing Let's Encrypt private key, it's in JWK format. The acme-tiny library has good documentation on how to convert it.

openssl genrsa -out key.pem 2048
Command Line Client

The command line client is run as follows.

acme_lw_d <filename of account private key> <domain name> ...

Multiple domain names can be on the command line.

The behavior is similar to the official Let's Encrypt client run as follows:

certbot certonly --manual -d <domain name>
Library API

The API of the library is documented in its source file. The command line client source provides an example of how it's used.

All methods report errors by throwing std.exception, which will normally be an instance of acme.AcmeException.


Split code into a library package and an optional CLI client, which uses the library package.
