For $X$ a scheme, analogous to how an $X$-scheme is a scheme $E \to X$ over $X$, a $\mathcal{D}_X$-scheme is a scheme over the de Rham space $\mathbf{\Pi}_{inf}(X)$ of $X$.
See also diffiety.
For $X$ a scheme, a $\mathcal{D}_X$-scheme is a scheme $E \to \mathbf{\Pi}_{inf}(X)$ over the de Rham space $\mathbf{\Pi}_{inf}(X)$ of $X$.
This definition makes sense in much greater generality: in any context of differential cohesion.
In the sheaf topos over affine schemes, an $X$-affine $\mathcal{D}_X$-scheme is a commutative monoid object in the monoidal category of quasicoherent sheaves $QC(\mathbf{\Pi}_{inf}(X))$, which is equivalently the category of D-modules over $X$:
This is (BeilinsonDrinfeld, section 2.3).
This is indeed equivalent to the above abstract definition
This appears as (Lurie, theorem, 0.6 and below remark 0.7)
The free $\mathcal{D}_X$-scheme on a given $X$-scheme $E \to X$ is the jet bundle of $E$.
This is (BeilinsonDrinfeld, 2.3.2).
This fact makes $\mathcal{D}$-geometry a natural home for variational calculus.
The definition in terms of monoids in D-modules is in section 2.3 in

The observation that this is equivalent to the abstract definition given above appears in pages 5 and 6 of
