Dataface is a flexible and intuitive user interface ...

dataface by Steve Hannah is a flexible and intuitive user interface for MySQL databases.
Dataface 1.0b2 is a flexible and shapeable skin that sits on top of MySQL (one of the world's leading Open-source database management systems) making it accessible to normal, every-day users.
In practical terms, it automatically generates the appropriate forms, lists, and menus for a user to interact with the database without having to know any SQL (structured query language).
It is a full-featured web application framework.
Dataface [dataface1.0b2.exe] gives developers the flexibility to customize the features and behavior of their Dataface [dataface1.0b2.exe] application by way of configuration files (using the simple INI-file syntax), templates, and plug-ins. The real power lies in a developer's ability to customize as much or as little about the application as he wants.
A generic Dataface - 0MB application with no customizations is completely functional. However the developer is free to customize things.
Features:
Automatic form generation
Dataface 1.0b2 generates forms to create and edit records, in addition to adding records to relationships.
Built-in find forms
Dataface applications include a "Find" tab that allows users to easily find the records they are looking for.
Out-of-box application
A default application with 3 lines of PHP code is fully functional allowing users to create, edit, delete, and find records with a simple user inferface.
Flexible and simple configuration
All aspects of the application can be configured using simple INI files.
Powerful PHP API
Any part of the application can be overridden using PHP delegate classes.
Customizable templates
Dataface uses its own Skin Tool which itself extends the Smarty templating engine. This allows any part of your Dataface application's look and feel to be customized. Override entire templates or insert your own content into predefined slots in the template.
Powerful permissions
Using Delegate classes you can define arbitrarily fine-grained permissions for your application. Dictate who can access which tables, records, fields, relationships, and actions in your application.
Easy result sorting
Easily sort your results by clicking in the column headers in list view.
Extendable
Add your own actions, roles, and templates to your application to suit your needs.
Simple relationship model
The Dataface relationship model makes it easy to define relationships between tables in your database. It also provides the means for end-users to easily add and remove records from relationships and to navigate the relationships without having to know any SQL. Dataface's handling of relationships is inspired by Filemaker Pro.
Simple valuelist model
For fields that should have a limited number of options, Dataface makes it easy to define these options based on either values in the database or options listed in a simple INI configuration file.
Rich set of widgets
Dataface uses HTML_QuickForm for its forms which comes with a host of widgets, including text fields, text areas, select lists, and checkboxes. In addition Dataface adds a few widgets of its own, including an HTML editor (uses FCKEditor or TinyMCE editor), a DHTML Calendar widget for date fields, a table widget (for fields contain multiple rows of data).
