Puakma: Under the hood

I'm Brendon Upson, jack-of-all-trades, master of one or two. I'm talking about life running a small ISV tackling business issues and leaping technology hurdles in a single bound.

Merry Xmas

This year once again rolled around far too quickly. I swear I had an extra two weeks to go until the 25th, but alas I'm proven wrong. As usual there's just too many things to do and not enough time to do them in.

The big ticket items for imminent release are: new puakma.net website and Vortex IDE. Watch this space for an early January launch. Here's a sneak preview:

New puakma.net site

The last couple of days have been spent refining the ability to import and export data (.pdx) in the same way you can export an application's design (.pmx file). This has had a couple of gotchas, like schema differences between source and destination. Currently this works on a table by table case - and it works great! Moving data between different databases is a snap, yesterday I moved some between postgresql and mysql with no problems. The intermediary file is a compressed xml file (as is a .pmx), and we've opened up the API to allow better access to process the data. Next step is I guess a full database export which will be great for backups. Did I mention all this is done in a web browser?

For those of you still foolish enough to be working at this time of year (and everyone else) I wish you the very best for the holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.


  1. That exactly what I need! Excellent work as always :) Merry Xmas.
