Directing domains with a certain TLD to specific nameserver

I have been looking for a way to handle this under Linux, using Mac OSX's resolver system makes this easy.  What my goal is I want to run a lightweight dns server on my local machine that takes all requests to a specific TLD, say requests to example.dev, back to 127.0.0.1.  Under OSX all I needed to do is create a like under /etc/resolver with the TLD to redirect as the file name that looks like this:

$ cat /etc/resolver/dev
nameserver 127.0.0.1
port 5300

The name server I'm running is listening on port 5300, how would I implement something like this under Archlinux?  If it matters the dns server I am using is this one https://github.com/robbiev/devdns

Re: Directing domains with a certain TLD to specific nameserver

On linux, there is no resolver file hierarchy. You'll have to use a nameserver that handles all queries, e.g.
dnsmasq or https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wildcard_dns_proxy/

404.  Seems like the package is gone, can't find it on search.

Because the thread is > 6 years old?
Don't necrobump, use dnsmasq.
