State: pre-alpha

GoMS is a ready-to-deploy schema driven adaptable platform for quick apps

Run it and take the tours before reading on

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 goms/goms

Then open Goms Dashboard to sign up and sign-in

What can be done


Define your own entities Define relations Subscribe to events Sync changes with other systems Deploy back end server
Todo Belongs to project Send SMS if deadline is today Update a Google Sheet when todo updated Build an android app
Todo Has current status Update manager when employee updates a todo SMS when todo is marked complete Build an Electron app
Cooking Recipe Has many Ingredients Get Slack notification when anyone adds new Recipe Get recipe from Google sheets Build a quick angular app
Wedding has many people called "attendees" Send everyone SMS on updates to wedding party schedule Calender changes with every attendees calender Build a UI using React

How can you use GoMS

  • Goms uses a SQL database and works like a very high level framework/management system
  • Goms asks you to define your domain entities along with their relations in the way you want to organise them.
  • Goms takes the responsibility of giving you following:
  • A responsive dashboard to interact with the system, tested on desktop browsers and mobile browsers
  • A in-built event framework which you can hook to
  • User notifications - Email/Sms/Messengers/Dashboard
  • Actions - Which can be hooked to events, and have multiple outcomes
  • A status tracking system (Visually design a state machine and make it available for any kind of object)

GoMS is a platform which can be customised using Schema files, which describe your requirements and processes.

Tech Goals

  • Zero config start (sqlite db for fresh install, data can be moved to mysql/postgres using goms)
  • A closely knit set of components which work together
  • Completely configurable at runtime, can be run without any dev help
  • Stateless
  • Try to piggyback on used/known standards
  • Runnable on all types on devices
  • Cross platform app using qt (very long term goal. A responsive website for now.)

Documentation state

Incomplete, might be confusing.

User system

Goms makes two tables for user management

  • user

Every user who is interacting with the system will be associated with a user in Goms.

By default a user is guest

  • usergroup

User and every other entity in Goms is associated to multiple user groups

Each user has his own user group


Every object in the system is owned by someone and belongs to multiple Usergroups.

The person who creates the object is the owner by default

Ownership can be changed (by someone who has permission to "write" on that object)


Every user is either a guest or a known user (logged in via one of the login providers).


Each object in Goms can belong to multiple user groups, where the admin specifies the permission that group users will have for the associated objects.

Permissions are linux filesystem style permission, are 3 digit numbers

  • First digit for owners of the object
  • Second digit for users in the groups which that object belongs to (multiple groups)
  • Third digit for everyone else
1 = Execute Only
2 = Write Only
3 = Write + Execute
4 = Read Only
5 = Read + Execute
6 = Read + Write
7 = Read + Write + Execute

Each table also has these permissions, which are picked up from the world table.


Goms work with relational entities. You can create entities to represent your work and the relations with other entities.

All entities are stored in a relational database. Currently the following database system support is targeted

  • mysql
  • sqlite
  • postgres

Environment definition

Goms keeps the configuration in database in two tables

  • world

Each table being used by Goms will have an entry in world table. It contains the schema in json as well a default permission column, for new objects in that table.

  • world_column

Each column known to Goms will have an entry in world_column table. It also contains the metadata about the column.

  • actions

Actions are defined on entities, have a set of Input Fields, and a set of Outcomes.
