Some users asked me if they could donate money for EagleData.
While EagleData is still free I have no problem in accepting donations to pay for my webspace and programming efforts.
If you want to donate something, please feel free to do so.

What is EagleData?
What are the system requirements?
Does it cost anything?
Is there a german/french/spanish/whatever version?
Can I view my data on my iPad/iPod?
Is this all the program can do? I am missing ...
Can EagleData store pictures?
Is there no manual?
Are there any demo-databases?
My question is not answered here. Where can I get help?
Why didn´t you answer my mail?
Were did you get that nice icon?
EagleData is a simple but flexible database that I wrote in the last millennium for the good old ATARI.
It is useful to file your addresses, catalogue your cd-, games-, or video-collection, etc..
It can even export your data as html-table and print labels.
Ever since I had a Mac I wanted to convert it, but missed the right tool to do so.
I made several attempts but to program a user Interface with Codewarrior was just too much work for me.
Then REALbasic came along and here it is: EagleData for the Mac.
Please download it and tell me what you think about it.
- Easy to use
- Import of tabtext
- Export as tabtext or html-table
- Multiple layouts
- Label printing
- Popup fields, checkbox fields
- Long textfields
- Special functions (set value for multiple records, insert serialnumber)
Any Mac that can handle OS X should be able to run EagleData.
(I no longer support the OS 9 or pre-Intel versions but you can still download them.)
EagleData is "mailware". You can use it as you like and have to pay nothing for it. If you want to contribute a bit to the cost for hosting and programming a small donation is always welcome (see top of page).
And I am always interested in what EagleData is used for, so if you can spare a minute please write me a short mail and tell me what you do with it.
No. I am writing in english because the majority of users is understanding enough english to use EagleData and since this project is only a hobby I do not have the time to translate it into different languages.
If you find spelling mistakes please let me know so I can correct them.
Yes you can. While EagleData runs on Mac OS only, Markus Sigg was so kind to write a free viewer app for iOS.
You can read about it on his website http://polaron.de/EagleView/index.html or just download the app in the AppStore (it is listed as "EagleData Viewer").
If you have suggestions for useful features, please feel free to tell me.
No. EaglaData is a "text-only" database. Maybe in the distant future I can find some time to implement picture storage.
It can store links to files though. Just drag a picture/pdf/whatever-file into a textfield and EagleData will store the path to that file. To open the file, click on the fieldtitle.
Caution: this will only work as long as the files stay in the same location and the links will no longer work, if you move those files.
- Layouteditor not working in BigSur.
- Date fields only work if the systems date-format for "short date" is "DD.MM.YY" or "MM.DD.YY".
- Not exactly a bug but: If EagleData is running very slow please check if you have a field with a lot of different values defined as Popup Menu. If so: uncheck that option and EagleData should run faster.
If you find something else please let me know.
I hope the program is easy enough to understand without a manual. Just try it out. However here is a short reference.
Bob Eley has created a database for a music library. If that could be useful for you, you can download it here.
If you have created a database that could be useful for others, please mail it to me and I put it on this page.
Just write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I try to answer your questions.
I answer all the mail that I get. If you do not get an answer, please check your spam-filter and be sure that you let mail from the domain "eaglesoft.de" pass through. If you still get no answer because either your or my mail got lost somewhere, please mail again and make sure that the subject contains the word "EagleData".
