Generic Information Server Toolkit (GIST) manages user definable information objects, so you don't write any CGI programs or SQL in your HTML, or index your data: GIST does it for you. You define your data and its structure; GIST then adds, changes, deletes and indexes it, so you can focus on providing the features and facilities your user community wants. It has been specifically designed to help user communities share information and communicate effectively without needing a full-time web master.
