Kexi

Kexi

Kexi is an integrated data management application. It can be used for creating databases, inserting data, performing queries, and processing data. Forms can be created to provide a custom interface to your data. All database objects - tables, queries and forms - are stored in the database, making it easy to share data and design.

Kexi is part of the KOffice productivity suite for the K Desktop Environment.

Kexi is considered as a long awaited Open Source competitor for Microsoft Access, FileMaker and Oracle Forms. Its development is motivated by the lack of Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools for database systems that are sufficiently powerful, inexpensive, open standards driven and portable across many operating systems and hardware platforms.

It uses the standard SQLite (the default built-in) database format, and has support for MySQL and PostgreSQL servers.  It also has a migration assistant for both MySQL and PostgreSQL to reuse existing databases, as well as a Microsoft Access migration assistant. Python and Ruby programming languages are supported, with application macros, and extensions (APIs) for developing custom widgets, data providers, and data importing/exporting.
