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

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome login
(hit return as the password)
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome co glom

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

er... sorry... easier than what? I tried jhbuild, but it seemed to be building the whole gnome world; I just want to build glom on a debian sid box, which has stuff like libxml2-dev in packages. I'm not very familiar with automake and such. Point me at a tutorial or something? Connolly 20:52, 14 May 2005 (PDT)

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.
