    The best PHP code generator, Give your opinion

    Hey,

    I'm a huge fan of PHP code generators, can tell you that i use two of then and can't live without then, any of you EVER used any php code generators? tell me how was it and we can talk about it.

    There is two diferent types, database driven (there is realy alot of this type) such as codecharger, and we have application oriented type such as scriptcase.

    Do you guys use php code generators? yes/no WHY? let me know

    Haven't really used any, other than a little bit of what StarUML can generate. I did write one for a client, though (creating input forms, form-handlers, and SQL for database tables).

    Because if it makes it too easy, then they could hire anyone to do my job.

    Using then you still need to do the hardest parts, but you are going to save time doing the esier and boring part automatically.

    Can I recomend you some?

    You can recommend all you want -- though I'd be mildly surprised if any of them had much use in the current environment I'm working in (a proprietary, Java-Struts-inspired PHP framework using a combination of PDO/PostreSQL and Mongo).

    I really haven't heard of such a thing. I'm sure they exist. It's really just another compiler compiler type of thing, with a GUI front-end I guess.

    I can't say if they're useful or not, they seem proprietary. I have seen some really nice proprietary stuff. Unfortunately there was a HUGE learning curve, and it's a complete lock-in. I saw this one tool, it was AMAZINGLY powerful for creating PHP/mysql things, it was so nice, and it even set up the server,sql server, and PHP for you. I mean, you can basically just pop right into week 2 or 3 after a few minutes. Unfortunately, the back-end was a GIANT FREAKING MESS. The database schema was complete trash. I don't just mean garbage, I mean there was nothing correct at all. Everything was obscure and there was an unacceptable amount of repetitive data. It used two tables for something that requires at least 6 (at 3N anyways). All of the columns were named 'n','v','w'... Now editing something in this system requires I have the software which is a lock-in if I've ever heard one.

    Sure they're faster, but what's the trade off?
    It sounds like something for a business environment, not a hobbyist. Make a video of you using one and put it on a video host so we can see what it looks like and the end result.

    I use (, ; : -) as I please- instead of learning the English language specification: I decided to learn Scheme and Java;

    That is true, i have to agree with you on that, but imagine that into a system you will have to create 5 forms an grids, all linked, or with master detail or a nested grid, simple but you will lose what, 1 day doing it? OK! i will not, this dont requeire a large amount of performance, i will use scriptcase and do it in 30mins inteand of 8 hours, that ok for me.

    I hope someday they fix the interface, the version 6.0 is comming out we will see how it will be. *praying*
