Projects / Dabo


Dabo is a three-tier, cross-platform database application development framework, written in Python with the wxPython GUI toolkit. The controls in Dabo's UI are easily bound to data by setting two properties. The business object is designed to afford you complete control over the validation and handling of your data. The cursor classes are abstracted from their backend implementations, allowing for easy support of nearly any backend database. Dabo's design and approach has been inspired by RAD database development tools such as Visual FoxPro, Delphi, and Visual Basic.
