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

The professional resume service 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.
