Abstract:  Building awesome UI’s fast with AngularJS, Bootstrap, vibe.d and a lot of D.

AngularJS, together with Node.js, is an extremely powerful combination for building single page applications. Unfortunately, its development requires writing HTML and Javascript, which is tedious and error prone. By using vibe.d, HTML is no longer necessary, and the developers can use the full power of a static-typed language for the development of the backend. Substituting Javascript with Typescript in addition to a little bit of CTFE D magic then removes the need for redundant data type declarations, and makes everything statically typed. At the end of the talk, the attendee will have witnessed the creation of a statically typed, asynchronous single page application that required little extra typing than its dynamically typed equivalent. Additionally, the attendees will be motivated to explore the presented combination of frameworks as a viable desktop application UI framework.
