dub - Package and build management system for D
dub fetch <name>[@<version-spec>] OPTIONS...
Note: Use "dub add <dependency>" if you just want to use a certain package as a dependency, you don't have to explicitly fetch packages.
Explicit retrieval/removal of packages is only needed when you want to put packages in a place where several applications can share them. If you just have a dependency to add, use the `add` command. Dub will do the rest for you.
Without specified options, placement/removal will default to a user wide shared location.
Complete applications can be retrieved and run easily by e.g.
$ dub fetch vibelog --cache=local
$ dub run vibelog --cache=local
This will grab all needed dependencies and compile and run the application.
Note: DUB does not do a system installation of packages. Packages are instead only registered within DUB's internal ecosystem. Generation of native system packages/installers may be added later as a separate feature.
