Peter Robinson: "As a tech savvy company director, I wanted an inexpensive web based database application to manage all aspects of my business. As with most humans I find developing purely by CLI very hard and do not have the will or time to invest in improving my skills. I was looking to find a nice human friendly GUI to design and build my application, which is when I came across PHP Generator for MySQL.

Whilst you still need a great understanding of logic and a small amount of programming ability to get the specific results you require, I am very happy with the speed of progress I have been making with this invaluable tool.

With all the standard libraries included, this product makes normal requirements such as JavaScript form validation, lookup selectors, on click events, auto complete, detailed searches, multiformat exports, rss feeds and username security straight forward and quick.

Having any changes made via the GUI written to the web server at the click of a button makes testing out ideas quick and easy without fear of breaking your application.

To conclude, I couldn't find any other product on the market that came close to offering the amount of options this does, and I do hope that more products like this come out in the future, with the hope of eventually eradicating the need to program all together".

Charles Phillips: "I very much like the program and all of its functionality! Would be happy to give you an endorsement or recommend it to others - saves me a ton of time".

Style sheets internals

Style sheets structure

PHP Generator's style sheets are made with LESS, a dynamic style sheet language that can be compiled into Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The choice of Less is motivated by such advantages of this language as variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that simplify the development of large style sheets.

 

All .less files are stored in the components/assets/less folder of the output directory. The main.less file references (directly or indirectly) all styles defined in other files and subdirectories of this folder as well as user-defined styles, which are stored in components/assets/less/user.less. Current color theme is defined in components/assets/less/theme.less. When you click "Generate" in PHP Generator for MySQL, the software automatically compiles main.less and saves the results to components/assets/css/main.css.

 

Manual compilation of LESS files

You might want to compile .less files manually. To do so, you will need to compile main.less using any .less compiler you like. For example, you can use dotless.Compiler (a command-line compiler that comes with PHP Generator and can be found in SQL Maestro Group\DotLess inside the Common Files directory) using the following command:

 

dotless.compiler.exe -r -m full/path/to/main.less

 

Visit dotless.Compiler wiki to find more info on using this tool.
