RootsDev,

Just a brief note to let you know about gPrime, a new web-based, open source program, descended from Gramps. It is:

* written in Python3, and tornado
* uses JSON extensively
* uses generic SQL databases, but in a NoSQL manner
* has a specialized query language
* runs via a browser, locally or on a server
* designed for modern uses for everyone
* not done yet... under design and development

Also, it supports the IIIF Image API that Ben Brumfield introduced me to in 2015:

You can try out gPrime here (username: demo, password: demo):


If you are interested in discussions on building a new genealogy program, please feel free to join in:

Is it possible to host this directly in a Gdrive and use the firebase as database
For home use this would  be great so several 2 to  3 family memebers could work togheter on the same database?

Interesting question... I'm looking into it...
