You could try knoda (www.knoda.org) and/or rekall (www.rekallrevealed.org). 
Unless you don't want do more complicated things knoda could be a good choice 
(but I don't know nothing about the report generator - I never used it). As 
of my experience knoda seems to be a little buggy: For example if you try to 
trigger some code in python from a combobox the program executes it twice. 
But for simple purposes it should work.
I tried rekall in a very early stage (2 or 3 years ago) but as the layout of 
texts in the different widgets on the screen wasn't that good, and as I 
wanted to work with larger texts I changed to knoda. Now rekall seems to have 
improved considerably and comes with a detailed manual.
