General Sql dAtabase Front End (C++, Multiplatform, Qt)

gSAFE is a General Sql dAtabase Front End multiplatform library written in C++ based on Qt. It is a complex system which define meta objects (Tables / Lists), which can autogenerate the graphical interfaces to manipulate the data. These meta objects can work together with Sql databases (PostgreSQL,MySQL,SQLite,Odbc) handles timestamps, concurence writing etc. The meta objects contains all information about the data which need to manupulete, shows, store, print or even make a excel table from its, including the attributes for the gui to edit the fields. You can define this meta object from program code or XML source. After you defined the meta object they can be attached to gui or send to printer or make a table. The gui is generated by the attributes of meta data table. This library enables you to develop sql based application really quick time. The base library is developed with Qt so the generated gui is a Qt based gui, work on all platform where the Qt runs.


The author uses this library about six-eight different programs in industry environment. This programs have worked years ago without any noticable problems.

The gSAFE is run/tested on Qt4.5.X , Qt4.6.X , Qt4.7.X , Qt4.8.X and Qt5.0.X platforms.

Currently Supported databases

PostgreSQL "The world's most advanced..."
MySQL "The world's most popular..."
SQLite "The most widely deployed..."   open source database engines. :-)

Independently useable parts

The gSAFE contains a DebugConsole functionality which is useable without gSAFE to provide debugging console to any Qt gui based program. (Screenshot and documentation available here)
