What you need, without the nonsense.

With Glom you can design database systems - the database and the user interface.

  • Glom has high-level features such as relationships, lookups, related fields, related records, calculated fields, drop-down choices, searching, reports, users and groups.
  • Glom keeps things simple. It has Numeric, Text, Date, Time, Boolean, and Image field types.
  • Glom systems require almost no programming, but you may use Python for calculated fields or buttons.
  • Each Glom system can be translated for multiple languages and countries.

Here are some screenshots with explanations, and news about recent changes.

There is some (unfinished) Glom user documentation, which is also available when running Glom.


The design is loosely based on FileMaker Pro, but with a separate database server. Its simple framework should be enough to implement most database applications. Without Glom these systems normally consist of lots of repetitive, unmaintainable code.

Glom uses the PostgreSQL database backend but it can not edit databases that it did not create, because it uses only a simple subset of Postgres functionality.
