a 3-tier framework for developing desktop applications.

Dabo is a framework for developing enterprise-grade 3-tier database applications. It is database- agnostic, and currently supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Firebird and SQLite as backends, with MS SQL support in development. It currently wraps wxPython for its UI layer, although other UI toolkits may be supported in the future. Dabo's ui module is an excellent replacement for raw wxPython. It wraps wxPython controls, and provides a much more Pythonic API to them. Many people who aren't connecting to databases are using dabo.ui to develop their apps, as they are much more productive than with raw wxPython.
