Projects / Xataface


Xataface is a flexible and shapable skin that sits on top of MySQL, making it accessible to every-day users. It automatically generates the appropriate forms, lists, and menus for a user to interact with the database without having to know any SQL. It is a full-featured Web application framework, and gives developers the flexibility to customize the features and behavior of their application via configuration files (using the simple INI-file syntax), templates, and plug-ins. A generic application with no customizations is completely functional, but the developer is free to customize things at his leisure.

            Superbly useful, well-documented, and gets you up and running very quickly. This tool saved me a pile of development when I needed a cosmetically-simple web front end for a database with a complex schema. I was up and running for basic table edits in about 30 minutes, and had the full relational schema reflected in Xataface within about 4 hours. The community was very responsive to my configuration questions. Two thumbs up, because I don't have three thumbs. :)
