List of PHP and MySQL Code Generators

PHP & MySQL Code GeneratorsIt’s both a dream and nightmare (if you make a living writing code) to have a tool that can turn a database into a fully functional application with little or no manual coding. Depending on your dream some of these tools may be just what you are are looking for, but none are likely to put traditional programmers out of business.

Some of these tools can rapidly build a fully functional application, but there’s more to most useful applications than simply displaying a list of fields for users to fill out and viewing the results from an admin only accessible area.

Most applications will need tweaks that can be small to large depending on the requirements. Keep that in mind when looking at these products as the amount of effort required to tweak the code produced by these tools may take more time than using a framework or library such as codeigniter, cakephp or the zend framework.

For in house applications some of these tools could be a good fit, but for applications to be used in the wild they will most likely need some tweaking.

These tools can also be used as learning/reference tool.
