ActiveRecord in PHP

September 24, 2007

I’ve been meaning to release this code for quite some time. I’ve finally had a bit of time and motivation to sit down and take care of it. Ever since I started working with Ruby on Rails, I would cringe whenever I had to write yet more PHP code to do simple CRUD actions. Furthermore I really enjoyed the Rails syntax that you use to interact with its implementation of the ActiveRecord pattern. As such, I went forward and built a clone using PHP5. So far it has been used for a few projects and has been a joy to use.

Props to my employer, Gospel Communications, who allowed me to spend some time on this during work hours, as well as give me full copyright of the code.

More information and documentation over on the project’s home page.
