The 'mentioned DB' -thus mentioned twice, has yet to be named... 'you CANNOT program without using it'... Oh my! Just what is this thing you mention?


The Holy DB Grail? Mayhaps GC is offering to summon Sir Lancelot?

In both iOS and Android, apps use the built-in DB, directly or unknowingly. Its easy to find its name.

Thanks for reminding us, Colonel Panic.

I noticed on the portabase site a "call for templates", so to speak. However I
could not find any portabase templates on the site. Would anyone know
where to find some? It'd make life easier for a few people, no doubt.

Thanks in advance. BFN.

About portabase: heads up! I had to un-install it on my LibrePup because its Qt libraries prevented vlc and qupzilla from launching.


Sorry to hear it. I'm sure there's a way round that, but I don't know enough about Linux's file structure to be able to come up with it (something I hope to change soon). Could you install two versions of Qt in different locations, for example?

Hi, Colonel_Panic.

I'll try installing only the portabase executable and see what happens.
LibrePup already has some Qt aupport, so maybe no extra Qt libs are
needed. I'll let you know.

BFN.

Don't be sorry, Colonel! Smile

Yep. Works! The Qt libs are not needed for portabase to work in
Librepup-6.0.2.2 since it already has them.

Here's a portabase package without any Qt libs that I made back in March
2013 from the git repo.

Enjoy!

He, He, I *did* think of EDB -Elephant Data Base, but when I googled it, I got no results. Hey, maybe it's supposed to be Big Elephant Data base... probably more scalable than the original, hence the name.

If you like African animals: http://www.elephantdatabase.org/ Very Happy
There's also: dbelephant, who sells DB converters.

Elephants are known for their fabulous memory. What DB do THEY use?! Wink

I did write some functions in shell script way back in the day to use the filesystem as a database (that's essentially what a filesystem is anyhow)
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86146
They should be compatible with gtkdialog if anyone wants to put a frontend to it... though the sqlite3 shell interface would pretty easy too.

That reminds me of this video: the importance of going web-scale.

musher0; Glad it worked out in the end. I'll give that Portabase package a try.

Subject description: Data Base exists for Puppy, for his doctor, should we say !
 

something sure : a DataBase needs... Data.
What is painful to fulfill Smile
I retired from office with some files, about industrial means. they are mine and top secret. Musher0 still has in the bucket nice DBase,
don't kick his bucket please, try them !
Symphytum is really a nice one, about medecines, and Medintux too. Some VIP's say 'puppy is weak and ill', that's not true, but in spite of puppy is healthy, try these two Qt apps, really nice.
Gramps is a nice Database too, but using it for people alive would be an offense.
Datacrow is a database for leasure, and upload data from the web. But VIP' in Puppy Forum don't show a great interest in it, because they have no time to play, their Puppies always seem having something wrong.

I see... pelo would like someone to kick my bucket so I won't be
offended when he'll input my name in the Gramps database. Twisted Evil

That's very polite of you, pelo. It's very funny too, in a dark humor
kind of way. Sad

Arghh, database lovers!!! Shocked Very Happy

Musher0, don't worry, be happy ! Datacrow will fullfill quickly all you need. You have only to search anything ... at least known a little bit. Even Puppy Linux gives a lot of results.. Surprising, and Impressive
No need to type on the keyboard

'It’s 300 grueling miles of ice, snow and danger. For Will Rollins, his best friend Elias, and Will’s savvy lead dog, Blackie, this is the race of a lifetime. But with the $1000 entry fee, can they even get in? Can the locals compete against world-class international racers? And what about Becky Silas? She’s a tough competitor. But are the boys ready for trail life with a girl? And as if the race isn’t risky enough, there’s someone deliberately sabotaging sleds and gear, endangering all. When the temperature falls, the wind rises, and danger prowls the long trail, the friend who has your back had better be a good one!'
