Databrowse is a Django application that lets you browse your data.
As the Django admin dynamically creates an admin interface by introspecting
your models, Databrowse dynamically creates a rich, browsable Web site by
introspecting your models.
-.. admonition:: Note
-
- Databrowse is **very** new and is currently under active development. It
- may change substantially before the next Django release.
-
- With that said, it's easy to use, and it doesn't require writing any
- code. So you can play around with it today, with very little investment in
- time or coding.

+The code that powers Databrowse is licensed under the same terms as Django
