easyGen not only allows you to export your project in a choice of ASP or PHP but it will also connect to all popular databases and also build those databases for you if needs be.
I am in many respects a relative novice computer user but as this years chair for my local round table it was left to me to sort out our new web site. This was a new web site and we wanted to allow people to buy tickets from us using Paypal. We also needed a search so people could find information in our pages and we needed the ability to email our members list so we could update them with up coming events. We also wanted our board members to be able to add or update the web site without any special software, so they could just log in and either add a new page or change out of date information.
As a charity we need to spend money wisely and the quotes we received for doing this work were ridiculous and so whilst searching the web I came across this product. After purchasing it I spent the first weekend with the 120 page manual trying to figure it out and then I found the training videos which luckily covered a lot of what we wanted to do. Within a few hours I had it the main part of our site created. By the end of the next day our new site was all but completed. easyGen did exactly what it was meant to do, it built our web pages and database and we have a wonderful new web site.
I would advise inexperienced users like myself to watch the training videos, they are superb and really do get you off the ground very quickly. My initial problem with easygen was, I think I was expecting it to be much more difficult to use than it actually was. Once I realised how truly simple it was to use, all became clear.
I would like to finish by saying I am a 58 year old who only started to use the computer 5 years ago and I believe if I can do something on the web it must be easy. I would never have believed I could have created a data web site. What a wonderful product this is.
Over the past couple of weeks I have attempted various projects with easyGen and it handled them all well.
The code it exports is simple, clean, well commented and easy for me to amend or add to.
As an experienced developer this software is defiantly going to save me hours maybe even days worth of coding, connecting databases, writing SQL queries and even building databases, and anything that does that is defiantly worthy of note.
easyGen is a lovely and very useful program, and the Shopping Suite generates a very good shopping system practically out of the box (or from the download as the case may be). As an experience programmer this software is a great time saver!
If you've never programmed before, this software will do pretty much everything you could want without you needing to learn ASP or PHP. Using the built in wizards and action you create your web page in a WYSIWYG page designer and when you export it builds your database (all of the popular ones - SQL Server, MySQL, Access, OLE and ODBC) and creates your programmed web pages in either ASP or PHP all ready for you to put on your website. It's very well documented and surprising easy to pick up.
Well worth buying.
