    In my case, this was about creating the terminal for EndBASIC ( I wanted to mix text and graphics in the same console, so I had to ditch Xterm.js and create my own thing. It was really exciting to see graphics rendering mix with text “just fine” when I was able to render the first line.

    > Very curious if anyone knows how to pull this off.

    I work in this space (small/mid-size).

    The good news is that there are several "obvious" ways to pull this off because an ERP is the culmination of everything a company needs and does. So almost anything you can imagine on the software is part of it.

    The bad news, and the reason everyone wants a solution, is that is truly a big space, and then you need E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.


    My take is to start from the bottom, and build a much better version of Access/FoxPro (

    Any medium/big ERP end being a specialized computing platform that needs:

    - A programming language

    - A database engine

    - An orchestration engine

    - ELT engine

    - Auth

    - UI/Report builders

    And to be clear: NONE of the "programming language", "database engine", etc are a good fit today.


    This is the big thing, This is the reason (from a tech POW only) that most attempts fail.

    This is the secret of why Cobol rule(d): Is all of this! but is too old! (also, this is why SQL still is best: Is almost this).


    So, to pull this off, you need a team that knows what is "missing" from our current tools, makes a well-integrated package, and adds a "user-friendly" interface in a way that is palatable for the kind of user that uses excel (powerfully).

    Is not that impossible. FoxPro was the best example of this kind of integrated solution.

    P.D: This is my life's dream, to make this truth!
