iommi is a Django-based framework that magically create pages, forms and tables with advanced out-of-the-box functionality based on your applications models - without sacrificing flexibility and control.
- A system to project django model definitions into more high level definitions
- Forms: view models, data validation, and parsing
- Queries: filtering lists/query sets
- Tables: view models for lists/query sets, html tables, and CSV reports
- Pages: compose pages from parts like forms, tables and html fragments
All the components are written with the same philosophy of:
- Everything has a name
- Traversing a namespace is done with __ when . can't be used in normal python syntax
- Callables for advanced usage, values for the simple cases
- Late binding
- Declarative/programmatic hybrid API
- Prepackaged commonly used patterns (that can still be customized!)
- Single point customization with no boilerplate
- Escape hatches included
See philosophy for explanations of all these.

This creates a page with three separate tables, a header and some text:
