PHPit.net brings yet another great tutorial your way with this first look at the AutoCRUD library for PHP - a database abstraction layer to help with some of the more mundane tasks (create/read/update/delete) of dealing with your data.
Welcome to this article on the AutoCRUD for PHP library. This library is a new database library specifically for MySQL, written by yours truly. The reason that this library is only compatible with MySQL is that I very rarely need to use another database, and I really wanted to focus on one database. It's possible that the library might get support for other databases in the future, but for now it's strictly MySQL only.
The tutorial provides a quick introduction to the functionality of the library - including built-in support for unique keys, table-object generation on the fly, and the benefit of being fully unit tested. Next up, the setup - there's some sample SQL to plug in to follow with the examples and the starting code to get the class included and working. They look at basic crud functionality, with a highlight on selecting, and the relationship handling abilities built-in.
