User front-end for MySQL and PostgreSQL databases


What is VFront

VFront is a free, open source front-end for MySQL or PostgreSQL databases written in PHP and Javascript. With VFront you can create forms for manage your data in AJAX style, different rules and privileges for groups, report in XML,HTML,PDF,statistics and much more. VFront is released under GPL license (version 2.0).

To whom and what VFront is useful

The three VFront rules

Grabbing the paragraph shape from Asimov, we try now to express the general principles we used for developing VFront

  1. VFront won't dirty your database, won't create tables or added views to your DB and won't modify data on tables unless you want expressly do it by creating queries. It will create his own discreet rules DB (or a personal schema on PostgreSQL) indeed. It won't seize your DB but let you use it.
  2. VFront won't bypass rules set on your DB. Using VFront you can create new more restrictive bond rispect on those you made on your DB (in terms of foreign keys, accettable inputs on fields, etc) and not vice versa.
  3. VFront will work as much best, as the definition of your database has been stricter. VFront loves normalization, foreign keys, primary keys (better if numerics), comments on tables and fields, etc... garbage in, garbage out : no escape.

All updates, new versions or contributions will follow these guide lines.

System requirements

Here are listed briefly the general characteristics of the system. For more details see the manuals .
