Development

From Glom
Jump to: navigation, search

Glom is in GNOME's git. To check out the latest version:

git clone git://git.gnome.org/glom

It is also in jhbuild, which might make things easier for you.

See the Build Help page for more details.

Implementation

Glom is built using gtkmm, the C++ wrapper for GTK+. It uses the Document/View model from Bakery, and the libxml++ C++ XML parser. It uses Python for custom field calculations. PostgreSQL databases are accessed via libgda.

The use of libgda means that Glom could theoretically support other database servers, but

  • that is not particularly interesting or useful for the target users.
  • that would require extra development and support.
  • that is not a priority at this time compared to more user-visible features.

However, database server vendors (or others) could make this a priority by funding the work.
