Kexi is a visual database applications creator tool by KDE, designed to fill the gap between spreadsheets and database solutions requiring more sophisticated development. Kexi can be used for designing and implementing databases, data inserting and processing, and performing queries.

The impetus for developing Kexi came from a noticeable lack of applications having the features of Microsoft Access, FoxPro, Oracle Forms or FileMaker while at the same time being powerful, inexpensive, open-standards-driven and sufficiently portable.

Kexi is a member of Calligra Suite. It works under Linux/ Unix and Solaris operating systems. Versions for Mac OS X (using Homebrew) and the Microsoft Windows (using KDE on Windows) are in development.

Kexi application and libraries is available under the LGPL. User and developer documentation is available under the GFDL.
