*** Glom

Glom is a GUI that allows you to design database table definitions and the
relationships between them. It also allows you to edit and search the data
in those tables. The design is loosely based upon FileMaker Pro, with the
added advantage of separation between user interface and data.

Glom uses the PostgresSQL database backend but it can not edit databases
that it did not create, because it uses only a simple subset of Postgres

Here are some screenshots:

Glom is written in C++, with gtkmm, Bakery, and libgdamm.

*** Obvious/Known problems.

* There is no way to administer the users.
* The User Level is not dependent on database access rights.
* The Details view should show lists of related records directly among the
regular fields.
* There is no printing/reports.

*** Changes

glom 0.8.10:

* Added an example document. It's not very interesting yet.
* Offer to create databases on the server based on documents,
  such as examples.
* Don't display empty dates, times, and numbers as "NULL".
* Specify empty dates and times to server in SQL as "NULL", not
  as empty strings.
* Dialogs have default buttons.
* Avoided a few crashes.
