Getting Started

Objective

ScaffoldThis is a technology agnostic rapid application development platform. The intent of the platform is to help you create your application as fast as possible by generating boiler plate code in a generic manner for each of the technology.

Currently we are supporting CodeIgniter and Spring MVC , Other frameworks are being built in upcoming releases.

High Level Concept (30,000 ft view)

Unlike other CRUD generator or Rapid Application Development tools or MDA/MDE (Model Driven Architecture/Model Driven Engineering), ScaffoldThis attempts to create a fully functional usable application. This means we intend to get the crafted code as close to developer written code as possible.

Like a CRUD (Create-Read-Update-Delete) tool, you have to tell ScaffoldThis the tables or entities in your system. You have to define all the attributes and relations between entities.

Once you have detailed your system, you can choose any of our various UI themes to match the look and feel which you like for your application. You can preview your application at any time to review your application.

Once you are satisfied with your preview, you can choose one of the various supported architectures and download the crafted code and deploy it on your own system. Check Deployment for instructions on installation.
