SynApp2 is a development tool that generates database-backed Web applications by processing your MySQL or Oracle schema definition and producing the Web pages used to manage your data. It does more than an admin tool or file manager by considering table relations as a cohesive whole that drives the generation of a complete application that smoothly integrates your entire database design, complete with PDF reports. It is open, compact, efficient, and compatible with the tools and technologies you’re using now.
AutoCMS is a smaller CMS with the minimum needed to have a presence on the Internet. Its main file is less than 10kb large by default. No database is required. It only has the concept of one user (the admin). The password is protected with SHA1. CSS styles are easy to build and to change. Changing a page is very fast. XHTML and CSS code are validated by W3C validators. Data is stored in a PHP file which can be downloaded by FTP for backups. The generated contents are friendly for searchers. The result is visualized correctly in all browsers. It allows you to update all contents without having knowledge of programming.
PHPTAL is a fast, safe, XML-based template engine for XHTML and HTML5. It implements Zope's Template Attribute Language, which has clean, concise syntax that is compatible with XML tools (no custom ugly tags), and template source files can even be previewed in Web browsers or opened in WYSIWYG editors. Templates are compiled to PHP and cached, giving great performance and taking advantage of PHP accelerators. PHPTAL by default ensures well-formed output and escapes XML-unsafe characters everywhere, which means that your pages can be completely safe against HTML-injection (XSS) without great effort. It features fine-grained caching of output, pre- and post- filters, internationalization via gettext or custom backend, creation of custom template attributes and expressions, and templates loaded from non-standard sources (e.g. databases). It supports UTF-8 well, is easy to integrate and redistribute with PHP frameworks and applications, and has an object-oriented design and a comprehensive unit test suite.
PHP Viz is written in PHP and lets you create MySQL-driven PHP sites. A prime feature it provides is the support to link up multiple tables (based on foreign and primary keys) and create views from them. The application lets you create “sites” rather than simple pages. You can even have login protection on your site if you have a users table in your database. All the basic functions are there: you can create tabular views, single record view, and add and edit view. The generated code is very clean, simple, and based on a very very simplified MVC architecture. This allows for expansion and code reusability with ease.
The Yana Framework is a platform for developing PHP applications. It can be expanded with your own plugins (components). It includes skin and template support, multiple languages (German and English by default), mature administration functionality, multiple installation profiles, user login and administration, a database API based on PEAR-DB that also offers database schema support, and a GUI/code generator for your own plugins. It also includes an easy to use query tool that automatically maps database commands to a flat file if no database support is available. Plugins provided with this software are a guestbook, an RSS to HTML converter, and a search engine. Complete documentation is included.
Ezphpconfig generates a set of PHP configuration classes from a supplied XML file. You can then access your configuration values very quickly without having to parse the XML file on every request. The element (tag) names become property names and the text contained in the elements becomes the property's value. It also supports nested elements. If the generated PHP file is older than the XML file, it is re-generated using the data in the newer XML file. This class also supports array types using the element inside an element whose type attribute is set to "array".
Sigma Visual builder is a WYSIWYG tool for rapid Web application design and involved script programming. With this powerful builder, Web applications can be developed using only drag and drop, just like what you do in VB or Delphi. More than 35 common AJAX components, including Tabs, Dialog, TreeGrid, TimeLine, and many other Web GUI components are supported. Its rich client-side API works with any backend (such as PHP, .NET, Java, or Python) or static HTML pages. The generated application has wide cross-browser compatibility.
