Projects / FormEntry


FormEntry allows you to to generate an HTML interface for one or more SQL tables. This allows users to maintain the content of the tables through HTML forms rather than entering SQL commands through a terminal. Since the forms are generated by this PHP application, there is no need for users to understand the details of HTML forms. FormEntry allows you to describe the column data with complex expressions to make it more difficult for users to enter data incorrectly.

      Release Notes: This release fixes a number of problems and adds support for new data types (textareas, selectdef, checkbox). The administrative code was moved into its own subdirectory (admin) for better access control. Support was added to allow one to clone definitions (useful when two tables are essentially the same and you want the definitions to look similar). This release makes changes to the definition table. You will eventually need to export and import all definitions.

        This is an astonishingly useful project. If you (me, heh!) don't have time to implement or even learn a web interface for a database that you need to get going in a hurry, formentry is just the ticket. What's even more remarkable is how extensible formentry is in terms of what's included for doing behind the scenes plumbing changes.

        Great work, Thank You.
