Pyd is a library for the D programming language that wraps the raw Python/C API with a cleaner, simpler interface. It makes exposing raw D functions and classes to Python almost trivially simple. It bears certain similarities to Boost.Python, and indeed Boost.Python is a major influence on Pyd.
Pyd is currently being developed on Fedora Linux. Its targets are D2 and Python 2.4 through 2.7. It requires DMD FE 2.060 or later.

- Building extension libraries is fundamentally limited by the fact that druntime does not support shared libraries. That being said, it is possible to get python extensions out of D compilers.
- Linux: Extension libraries are nominally working on LDC. Loading multiple extension libraries is not working. Unittests and module constructors/destructors outside of phobos are not being run.
- Extension libraries are working well on Windows with DMD.
embedding python works decently with DMD, LDC. GDC status unknown.
