About

Ferretsoft Excess is the working title for a software application, initially web-based, that will combine and extend the most useful pieces of GUI-oriented database programs (such as MS Access and FileMaker) and spreadsheets (such as LibreOffice Calc and MS Excel). The name is partly an amalgam of the two Microsoft products, Excel and Access.

It will, however, use a somewhat different and more flexible database model.

The software is currently in an early design phase, which is being documented here.

Conceptual Design

Components

  • flex-data engine (experimental)
  • data editor: view/edit data without defining a form
  • forms: view/edit data in task-oriented formats
  • reports: view data in document-oriented formats e.g. for printing or sharing
  • scripting: facilitate creating useful applications within Excess
