Umple can be used for pure UML modeling. Or it can be used to add UML constructs, such as associations and state machines to code written in Java, PHP, or Ruby. It generates code in these languages that can save a large amount of programming effort and result in higher quality. The UmpleOnline tool allows you to edit UML diagrams graphically, and watch the Umple textual code being written in real time. This works the other way too: you can write textual Umple and watch the corresponding UML diagram appear. Umple is being extended to support patterns, tracing, and a variety of other features. Umple is written in itself, which is central to maintaining its quality. Umple can be used today by any programmer or modeler.
APF is a code generator that codes your software as you drag and drop code-abstracts on a canvas. It can be trained by the community to code almost anything. With automatic programming, it will sometimes code 50% to 100% of small or large software projects. APF has successfully shipped some real life software. But APF must produce more diverse software projects. You can help APF grow by picking re-usable code from any existing open source. 'Metacode' that code and submit it to the APF marketplace. APF feeds on re-useable code submitted by the community. This way, APF gets trained to auto code more and more. You can also improve the way APF assembles code, or the way its Canvas lets the user drag and drop code abstracts.
Wikitty is a key/value storage and search system. A Java object or a relational table is frozen when writing code or creating a database. To make them evolve, you have to go back into the code, write a migration process, etc. It is also hard to maintain coherent code when you want to develop the same application for similar needs with only small differences. Between the common code and the specific code, it can easily become a real burden. Wikitty tries to answer those problems, bringing a technical solution which is easy to put into place and to use.
rough is software to embed macros in PHP code. Add a comment to your code, run the macro command, and rough generates code. The macros are not removed from the source code and can easily be updated. Currently, there are macros to generate get methods, generate set methods, and emulate traits in PHP 5.3.
MyRad4PHP creates applications on the fly, making a Web application without writing a single line of code. It's inspired by the Entity Framework and Dynamic Data Web sites (Microsoft). The generated application can extend or write code to customize all or some of its functionality. This tool takes a MySQL database and creates a Web application in seconds.
