NAME

dub - Package and build management system for D

SYNOPSIS

dub fetch <package>[@<version-spec>] OPTIONS...

DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

--version=VALUE
Use the specified version/branch instead of the latest available match The remove command also accepts "*" here as a wildcard to remove all versions of the package from the specified location
--force-remove
Deprecated option that does nothing
