Title: Database
Post by: uzi on January 05, 2007, 04:34:16 AM
Hey and thanks for a great program

I was wondering if there are any plans on allowing integration with the database. All this export to cvs files thing is nice, but if you want to really be able to create your statistics and update them automatically and have advanced calculations - it's just not enaugh. Also, if I could use SQL to retrieve information from the database, or even create views, things would look differrent.

I know that the currently implented database isn't any kind of relation database as such, but it would be very helpfull if it was, don't you think?

Of course if the database were a true relational DB then you could do a lot more with it.  And there are a number of technical reasons I chose not to use one.

A suggestion would be to go from CSV to relational DB.  You just need an intermediate step: getting data from the TD into your DB.  Then do what you want.
