Overview

Camelot

Camelot provides components for building business applications on top of Python, SQLAlchemy and Qt. It is inspired by the Django admin interface. A simple piece of code as this:

class Task( Entity ):
    short_description = Column( Unicode( 60 ), nullable = False )
    due_date = Column( Date() )
    long_description = Column( RichText() )

    class Admin( EntityAdmin ):
        list_display = ['short_description', 'due_date']

Is enough to define your database schema, define the mapping between the database and objects, and to create a user friendly desktop GUI.

Building applications with Camelot has these advantages :

  • Use high quality editors together with the Qt Model-View framework
  • Editors are bound to the model without writing binding code
  • User friendliness and performance out of the box
  • Tons of built in functions such as data import and export, printing, backup and restore
  • Documentation on creating the various parts of an application like wizards and reports
