Re: My php/MySQL Generator Search
> I'm a developer but new to php. For a quick personal project, I have spent the last couple weeks searching for a free or low cost solution for providing a generic php/MySQL interface. I've come to the conclusion that there currently are none that meet my needs. All I want is to be able to generate a spreadsheet type interface to an existing table, and allow updates, inserts, and deletions to the records. Thus far I have looked at AppGini, Asap, phpGen, phpJaneBuilder, phpMyEdit, and Soloman. In all the apps that I've looked at they were bug ridden, difficult to implement, or were lacking in the necessary features. And I'm also amazed that some of these products are asking for $ but they appear to have been designed by a 13 year old web developer with a "cool idea".
> Needless to say, I am currently disappointed. I can't afford to spend time developing the php source for a database interface for a "hobby" application. If anyone is aware of anything that fill this needs then please let me know.
(ADODB (http://php.weblogs.com/ADODB)) . It offers a very abstract interface with decent support for MySQL and other database servers.
