A downloadable tool for Windows and macOS
MyData is a quick tool that I coded to have a quick way to organise the tons of data writing an RPG can produce. It has been set up to easily organise my data and to quickly export stuff to either Lua or Python. This utility has been used in my Secrets of Dyrt, Star Story and The Fairy Tale REVAMPED, and is also being used in my current game in development "Sixty-Three Fires of Lung". The inventory items, spells, achievements, what merchants have in stock for you to buy. MyData made it all possible for me to create this data in a very quick way.
It's by far not as sophisticated as SQL based database systems, so it does not support 'SELECT field1,field2 FROM MyTable where conditionfield=true' kind of possibilities, nor does it have support for foreign keys and shit like that.
Nevertheless this tool reduced my development time on all the games I just mentioned greatly.
I've decided to release the tool under the terms of the General Public License, so you can use it any way you see fit (the 'viral part' of the license only affects source codes used to make the tool itself. 'The Data' is not being affected). Due to its Lua and Python exporter, this tool could be handy for games written in PyGame and LöVE for starters. I do have plans to rewrite this tool and when I do, support for more scripting languages to export to could become quite realistic if you can tell me how the exported scripts will have to look.
