vibe-d 0.10.0-rc.1

Event driven web and concurrency framework

To use this package, run the following command in your project's root directory:

Manual usage
Put the following dependency into your project's dependences section:

This package provides sub packages which can be used individually:

vibe-d:utils - Low level utility functionality

vibe-d:data - Data format and serialization support

vibe-d:stream - Library of various pluggable stream implementations

vibe-d:tls - TLS stream implementations

vibe-d:crypto - Cryptographic helper routines

vibe-d:textfilter - Text filtering routines

vibe-d:inet - Internet standard functionality

vibe-d:mail - SMTP client support

vibe-d:http - HTTP server and client implementation and higher level HTTP functionality

vibe-d:mongodb - MongoDB database client implementation

vibe-d:redis - Redis database client implementation

vibe-d:web - High level web and REST service framework


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

Hello Vibe.d

#!/usr/bin/env dub
/+ dub.sdl:
   name "hello_vibed"
   dependency "vibe-d" version="~>0.9.0"
import vibe.vibe;

void main()
    listenHTTP("", (req, res) {
        res.writeBody("Hello Vibe.d: " ~ req.path);


Download this file as hello.d and run it with DUB:

> dub hello.d

(or chmod +x and execute it: ./hello.d)

Alternatively, you can quickstart with examples directly on Open on

Project structure

The vibe.d project is structured into multiple repositories:

  • vibe-d (this repository): The high level web and REST framework, HTTP, STMP and Redis/MongoDB functionality
  • vibe-http: HTTP client/server implementation including WebSockets, proxy, sessions etc.
  • vibe-stream: Advanced stream types and TLS stream support
  • vibe-inet: Internet standard functionality (URL, form encoding, HTML encoding, ...)
  • vibe-core: Fiber based I/O and concurrency implementation
  • vibe-serialization: Serialization and structured data format support
  • vibe-container: Container implementations used throughout the project
  • vibe-sdl: SDLang serialization support based on sdlite
  • vibe-compat: Legacy functionality
  • observable: Observable, signal/slot and reactive value implementations
  • diet: pug.js inspired compile-time HTML template system with vibe.web integration
  • eventcore: Low-level abstraction over the operating system's asynchronous I/O facilities

You can find an API overview of the whole project in the API documentation.


Vibe.d supports the 10 latest minor releases of DMD. For example, if the current version is v2.090.1, then v2.089.x, v2.088.x, ... v2.080.x are supported. Note that support for patch release is desireable, but only support for the last patch in a minor is guaranteed.

Additionally, Vibe.d supports all LDC versions that implement the version of a supported frontend (e.g. by the previous rule LDC v1.20.0 implements v2.090.1 and would be supported).


Instead of explicitly installing vibe.d, it is recommended to use DUB for building vibe.d based applications. Once DUB is installed, you can create and run a new project using the following shell commands:

dub init <name> -t vibe.d
cd <name>

Similarly, you can run an example by invoking dub from any of the example project directories.

Note that on non-Windows operating systems, you also need to have OpenSSL installed - and of course a D compiler. See below for instructions.

Additional setup on Windows

Additional setup on Mac using brew

If you don't have brew installed, install it according to their install instructions.

You can then also install DUB using brew:

brew install dub

(Note: Install brew only if you do not have macports, as they will conflict)

Install DMD using the installer on

Optionally, run ./ to create a user/group pair for privilege lowering.

Additional setup on Linux (Debian/Ubuntu/Mint)

Install vibe.d's dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

On 32-bit linux: Install DMD-i386

sudo apt-get install g++ gcc-multilib xdg-utils
wget ""
sudo dpkg -i dmd_2.098.0-0_i386.deb

On 64-bit linux: Install DMD-amd64

sudo apt-get install g++ gcc-multilib xdg-utils
wget ""
sudo dpkg -i dmd_2.098.0-0_amd64.deb

Optionally, run ./ to create a user/group pair for privilege lowering.

Additional setup on Linux (generic)

You need to have the following dependencies installed:

Optionally, run ./ to create a user/group pair for privilege lowering.

Additional setup on FreeBSD

Install the DMD compiler and vibe.d's dependencies using portupgrade or a similar mechanism:

sudo portupgrade -PN devel/pkgconf

Optionally, run ./ to create a user/group pair for privilege lowering.

Switching between OpenSSL versions

By default, vibe.d is built against OpenSSL 1.1.x. On systems that use the older 1.0.x branch, this can be overridden on the DUB command line using --override-config vibe-d:tls/openssl-1.0. Alternatively, the same can be done using a sub configuration directive in the package recipe:

SDL syntax:

dependency "vibe-stream:tls" version="~>1.0"
subConfiguration "vibe-stream:tls" "openssl-1.0"

JSON syntax:

    "dependencies": {
        "vibe-stream:tls": "~>1.0"
    "subConfigurations": {
        "vibe-stream:tls": "openssl-1.0"

Finally, there is a "botan" configuration for using the D port of the Botan library.
