Introducing AMPLE: Another MySQL PHP Light Edition Database Scaffolder


Welcome to Step41’s AMPLE Scaffolder web site and host to the AMPLE Scaffolder application and related content. AMPLE Scaffolder is an open source web-based MySQL database utility written specifically for PHP environments. Developed by Jeff Todnem at Step41 Software, AMPLE Scaffolder (formerly known as MBG Scaffolder) was specially designed to enable quick and easy record creation, retrieval, update and deletion (CRUD) within any MySQL database (version 5.0 or later). AMPLE Scaffolder exists in a single-file format less than 250 kilobytes in size, and is ready to use right “out of the box”. And when we say it’s light weight, we mean zero external configuration files required, zero database exports required, and zero coding experience required. Now that’s low-calorie!

8,243 copies of AMPLE Scaffolder are currently in operation. What are you waiting for?

In a nutshell, Step41′s AMPLE Scaffolder was designed to allow database developers to more easily manipulate MySQL table data without the use of magical incantations. Built entirely on PHP (with Javascript for extra flavor), AMPLE Scaffolder assists developers by generating human-readable and selectable values instead of the traditionally-seen numerical record ids. Using auto-generated drop lists, developers can now select easy-to-read, pre-validated options for any referential tables, as well as any enum, set, boolean or csv field types. And those are just a few of the surface features. Check out a more comprehensive features list for more details. For those of you who are new to the AMPLE Scaffolder application, we’ve set up a live demo to allow you to test some of the application’s current capabilities.
