Hi Swaiba,

I made the SQL query field auto expand. Check out the new code.

hi everybody,

fyi: having used db plumber intensely over the last month myself, i fixed some bugs and added some enhancements:

1) i rewrote the sql parser and added a pseudo lexer that optionally can clean up and nicely indent your messy sql commands ;)

2) i fixed some issues with the record form: handling of quotes/double quotes/html (@uncle cheese: thanks for pointing this out) and I fixed the radio buttons for adapters that support real boolean

3) the table view got two new tabs for truncating and dropping tables

4) dbplumber now works with ie.

so if you're using dbplumber update your copy now. it's worth it. if you find a bug, drop me a mail or file a bug report.

Hey Andy,

I've been looking into the db plumber module (in preparation for using it on my sites), but have run into a couple of problems, in hindsight I should have just added them both here... but instead I just raised separate threads...

one for problems importing an export
and the other for complex queries in the sql box

any help is much appreciated!

You have any plans to update this for 3.0? I'd really like to see it happen!

Hello Andy.

I'm new to ss and attempting to define a best practices baseline setup. First, I'm am trying composer. Any chance smindel/silverstripe-dbplumber at GitHub can be installed that route? No love for me yet. Also, I have not been able to install into ss 3.1.1. GitHub readme says ss 2.4 or newer. When I try to switch to dbplumber tab I get an error at line 124 of DatabaseBrowser.php. Is this a php problem (version 5.4.12) or is it ss? GitHub readme requirements makes no mention of php versions.

Best regards,

For those that are looking for an upgrade of this I'd suggest another phpmyadmin alternative...
