RE: Soybo, a long time coming
Digging deeper into Soybo, the packaging is not great. Unfortunately, one has to manually download and install MySQL, PHP, and more. Not sure why, but I thought that this would have come with dedicated binaries for these components. Hopefully some day there's a proper installer available that ships with all the binaries required to get it running (Apple's GUI Scripting would still be a separate download/install though, I guess). If that's too heavy, maybe using a smaller database engine like SQLite would work.
