    Automatic code generation from database Link to this post

    Hi all,

    I refer to the automatic code generation of an entire application from nothing more than a few tables in a database.

    In SilverStripe is possible generate the model, controller and views based in current database schema?

    Thanks in advance

    No, but I've often thought that this would be handy - a-la CakePHP and Symfony.

    The trouble is, the Silverstripe system follows a defined database structure based on the code that is present - not the other way round.

    When you install Silverstripe, or add a new page/data type, the correctly structured database tables are created for you. I think messing with this structure and using a generator to create MVC code for you will only give you problems.

    Cheers
    Aaron
