Glom Buttons

Extending Glom via python is such a marketable feature that I spent a couple of days to add a button layout item so it’ll be in version 1.0. Glom already supports calculation of field values with python, but this allows arbitrary actions when the user clicks the buttons, equivalent to FileMaker’s “scripts”. The example has a slightly-modified pygtk helloworld program in the button.

The python script already has access to the record details. In future we could add API so that python code can, for instance, add records, navigate to tables and records, find, and print.
