GUIs

March 2, 2008

I’ve got this Postgres database, created during the LinuxChix Postgresql course, that’s all nice but would be more useful with a GUI or some other way to interact with it. I remember sucking at Java GUIs so I thought here’s an opportunity to suck less.

But urgh. Don’t know if I’ve gotten spoiled by Perl or if it’s just Swing and desktops GUIs in general that work like that but the busy work is driving me nuts. It feels like I’m spending 10x more time on setting up things to please the JVM than actually writing code that does something to help me reach my goal.

As long as I have some hair left to pull, I won’t give up, but writing a CLI is getting more appealing by the minute. 😉
