Deluge or Data Enriched Language for the Universal Grid Environment as we call it, is an online scripting language integrated with Zoho Creator. It enables users to add logic to the application, incrementally, making it more powerful and robust. The entire database layer is abstracted and you will only speak in terms of forms and fields, while scripting in Deluge. A HR manager who wants to create a recruitment application, a home maker who wants to keep track of her monthly expenses, a sales guy who wants to keep track of his leads can all code very easily using Deluge. And a techie who slogs all day creating a web app using conventional tools would be just amazed at how fast it is to do the same using Deluge.
To mention a few powerful applications you can create with Deluge - Library Manager, Recruitment application, Inventory Management and more. The Deluge Script Builder provides a drag-and-drop user interface to add Deluge scripts without the need to learn or remember the Deluge syntax and functions. It helps in creating Deluge scripts quickly, without any errors.
The Deluge Script syntax is easy to read and understand. So the process of creating powerful application is fun, easy and quick.
Deluge Script has no concrete syntax. The syntax you see is just a "skin". The actual code is stored as abstract syntax (i.e a whole bunch of tables) in the database. So in future users will be able to generate the same code in their own favorable syntax. For e.g., Sam can edit the code in the standard Deluge syntax while Lucy can edit the same code in her favorable Perl syntax.
Applications built by users have a fully normalized relational data models.
Deluge Script bridges the gap between the program logic written in a high level programming language and the data that it operates upon. It brings the expressiveness of SQL closer to the core application logic. i.e. query is integrated at the language levels.
