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.
* There is no printing/reports.
* Postgres connection:
- Really use the template1 database when creating new databases.
- Slightly better error handling.
* Obscure internals:
- Use a custom GdaValue-based treemodel for the List view,
allowing us to get data on-demand in future.
