Answers to some of the most common questions.

What is Gentleman?

Gentleman is a lightweight web modelling tool, which gives you the freedom to represent the thing you want, the way you want it.
You can define and use concepts (data-structure for your model) with the visuals (projections) that fits your needs and preferences.

How is it possible?

Gentleman uses projectionnal editing which decouples the data structure (concept) from its representation (projection). In doing so, it is possible to choose any projection to represent any concept.
