What is RunaBase?

RunaBase is a platform for creating programs designed to store data in the database and generate documents based on the stored information.
The complete absence of programming allows you to create automation systems for anyone in a short time.
The main part of the structure is constructed by dragging the desired field types into tables with setting additional properties.
The program is built "on the fly": as you create objects and forms, you can fill the database with data and continue to expand the system as needed.
The interface for working with data is already ready and the user only needs to focus on creating the structure and interaction of program elements.
Customizable search throughout the database allows you to quickly find any information.
Documents are created on the basis of templates of the most popular Office suite of applications. Templates specify the names of fields from the program, which are replaced in the process of forming the document. You can create a template based on an existing document.
To import/export data, use .csv files that can be created or opened in MS Excel or LO / OO Calc.
Additional services allow you to expand the basic features of the program: SMS sending, map services, connection of third-party services, interaction with MySql, MS Access, etc.
