Bit of background I am like most , constantly looking out for better tools and have been periodically searching Google for low code tools now for nearly 5 years. 3 years ago I started dipping my toe into web code generators and then about 2 and a half years ago I went out and bought tools linked to Xlinesoft – I have copies of both ASP.net runner and PHPrunner and I thought I would give some feedback. It seems to me incredibly difficult to get unbiased reviews of low code platforms. If you do a search for it on google you only seem to find the really big (and expensive players) who don’t clearly indicate how good they are for CRUD application generation. The main generators I looked at were Nubuilder (open source but only supports MYSQL databases and it doesn’t produce responsive designs) – PHPMaker – not bad but wasn’t getting great performance and didn’t like the UI of the genrator that much / Radzen – good but ASP NET based and its a bit young at the moment.
Word up – I basically think Xlinesoft’s PHPRunner is particularly excellent. I have copies of ASP NET Runner and PHPRunner but found because I can get better performance with PHPRunner and because Linux hosting is cheaper I am moving all my applications across to PHPRunner. Their ASP Net Runner has served me well and I had one client on it and they are very happy. I still plan to move them across to PHPRunner.
I have managed to create 5 working applications and I am starting to get independent clients who I make applications for. To date they have been very happy with my work and are usually very happy with how quickly I can turn round their requests.
Points I would draw your attention to specific to PHPRunner.
Initial scaffolding of a connected database is fast and flawless. Every connected table gets a List / Add / Edit / View and Search page. This saves a massive amount of time in getting started.
