Goma (GO MAterials database) is a program enabling command line access to the YAML files distributed with Yamdb. It implements the equations necessary to calculate the thermophysical properties from the coefficients stored in the YAML database. Yamdb (Yet another materials data base) and Goma address the need to provide thermophysical properties of liquid metals and molten salts in an easily accessible manner. Mathematical relations describing material properties - usually determined by experiment - are taken from the literature. Equations and their coefficients are stored separately. The former can be implemented in any programming language (Go in this case) and the latter are kept in YAML files together with additional information (source, temperature range, composition, accuracy if available, etc).
