dub - Package and build management system for D


dub generate <generator> [<package>] OPTIONS...


Generates project files using one of the supported generators:

visuald - VisualD project files

sublimetext - SublimeText project file

cmake - CMake build scripts

build - Builds the package directly

An optional package name can be given to generate a different package than the root/CWD package.


Specifies the type of build to perform. Note that setting the DFLAGS environment variable will override the build type with custom flags. Possible names:
debug (default), plain, release, release-debug, release-nobounds, unittest, profile, profile-gc, docs, ddox, cov, unittest-cov, syntax and custom types
Builds the specified configuration. Configurations can be defined in dub.json
Uses the specified configuration for a certain dependency. Can be specified multiple times. Format: --override-config=<dependency>/<config>
Specifies the compiler binary to use (can be a path). Arbitrary pre- and suffixes to the identifiers below are recognized (e.g. ldc2 or dmd-2.063) and matched to the proper compiler type:
dmd, gdc, ldc, gdmd, ldmd
Force a different architecture (e.g. x86 or x86_64)
Define the specified debug version identifier when building - can be used multiple times
Do not resolve missing dependencies before building
Specifies the way the compiler and linker are invoked. Valid values:
separate (default), allAtOnce, singleFile
Treats the package name as a filename. The file must contain a package recipe comment.
Deprecated option that does nothing.
[Experimental] Filter version identifiers and debug version identifiers to improve build cache efficiency.
Tries to build the whole project in a single compiler run.
Prints the list of available build types
Prints the list of available configurations
Prints the identifiers for the current build platform as used for the build fields in dub.json
Runs multiple compiler instances in parallel, if possible.
