Giving this cat a little walk

I’ve just watched TurboTunes screencast … CatWalk seems to be a good piece of code which puts SQLObject in all its userfriendly point-an-click glory ! It made me think about Django’s CRUD admin sites in some aspects, though Django seems a bit simpler in that particular field, in terms of ...
