What's the easiest way to debug a dub app build?

Is there a better way than

     dub run

followed by

     gdb run PATH_TO_APP_BINARY

?

Correction should be dub build --build=unittest or dub build --build=debug followed by gdb PATH_TO_APP_BINARY

Does using an IDE count? Some D IDEs should be able to assist in debugging.

No, there's nothing specific with an application built using Dub. Dub doesn't provide any help with debugging. Just make sure you're debugging a debug build. -- /Jacob Carlborg
