First Diary entry. STO, eh?

I'm getting pretty sick of writing more-or-less the same PHP3 PostgreSQL query code, over and over (sure, code reuse makes this less tedious, but only somewhat). Gonna have to investigate what XML / PostgreSQL tools exist.

What I want is to be able to sketch out a schema and automatically have a set of pages that (1) show a table's contents, (2)detail on records with associated data from other tables, (3) create new or edit existing records, and (4) delete records.

The tedious part is rewriting pages to account for different kinds of relations. If there isn't an open source tool for streamlining this, I'm gonna write one. Itch, itch.
