On the PHPClasses.org blog there's a recent post about using the DaDaBIK project to automatically generate a database CRUD frontend without having to code any of it by hand.
Writing CRUD database front-ends and simple database applications is a very common task that almost all PHP developers need to implement. It is usually a simple job to accomplish, but is also time consuming, boring and error-prone to implement. Software developer's tend to avoid time wasting and repetitive tasks in favor of more challenging tasks. This lead to the development of applications with the goal to automate front-end development. DaDaBIK is one of the precursors of this kind of applications for automated creation of PHP front-ends. Released initially in the year 2000 by myself, Eugenio Tacchini, the project continues to be actively developed until today.
Included in the post are a few screenshots of the interface and a screencast showing it in use. You can find out more about the project on the DaDaBIK website.
