blist – Database/Web App For Mortals
If I was a software critic (and I’m not) my endorsement for blist would simply read, “They’ve totally aced it!”
First, it’s an elegant user interface. I’m no DBA. But, I do have need for simple database tools fairly frequently. I’m a real web app snob (consumer side) these days and these guys have really made something difficult within easy reach of the most dense of us (thinking of me as I type).
I hope as it matures it has APIs to other web apps or apps we might build ourselves. I can see a day where the tools we use to assemble our dot coms are totally resident on the web (all my blogging tools are and I’m getting into Google Docs now too). So, to have an easy to use web-based DB alternative is a welcome addition to my bag of tricks.
Anyone interested, simply comment here and I’ll send you an invite (be sure to fill out the email address… no worries it won’t be made public). Otherwise, you might be waiting several days to get an invite through Kevin and Matthew.
