Knowledge is a flexible text database which allows records to have a free format. This is a prototype coded in pure Python to demonstrate the concepts involved.
Fields may be inserted, re-ordered, or changed to a different type arbitrarily in any record using buttons to the left of each field (picture 1). Each record and field type has its own editable colour/ style (picture 2). The ability to search for any word or phrase has still to be implemented. A macro-button field type will be added to allow users to add their own searches and other commands, thus providing a way for users to structure their data - picture 3 shows a macro-button field open for editing. Fields for displaying images are supported.
