Meeting with Gaëtan Delannay. We comparend Lino and his appy.gen framework.
Lino versus appy.gen¶
´appy.gen´ uses the ZODB while Lino uses SQL databases.
Lino application are rather traditional desktop applications that moved to the web, while ´appy.gen´ application are rather database-driven dynamic websites.
Lino does not (yet) offer “workflows”. Gaëtan explains what workflows are:
The security model behinds gen-applications is similar to what Zope and Plone offer; simply, gen tries to simplify the way to declare and manage security within your applications. According to this model, users are put into groups; groups have some roles; roles are granted basic permissions on objects (create, read, write, delete, etc). Permissions-to-roles mappings may vary according to the state of objects.
