Desktop free-form text database in which each record may contain an arbitrary collection of fields. Each field and record has its own style and colour. Efficient text searching - text is indexed as it is entered. Inspired by Blackwell Idealist.


  • Records contain any mix of fields in any order
  • Fields of various base types, e.g. text, float, integer, image, links to urls: www, mp3 and pdf
  • Full text search / indexing facilities (using Xapian)
  • Powerful search facilities, but simple to use
  • Suitable for academic bibliography, observation records, collections etc.
  • Easy to add navigation and instruction records.
  • Every database has a Home record. There is a button to search for this.
  • Embedded commands in macro fields (with clickable button) can be placed in any record.
  • For more information see the MediaWiki page under 'Hosted Applications'
