RedBeanPHP is easiest way to do ORM in PHP. It creates all tables and columns you need on-the-fly and it does not require a single line of configuration!
This is how you do CRUD in RedBeanPHP:
R::setAutoResolve( TRUE ); //Recommended as of version 4.2
$post = R::dispense( 'post' );
$post->text = 'Hello World';
$id = R::store( $post ); //Create or Update
$post = R::load( 'post', $id ); //Retrieve
R::trash( $post ); //Delete
This automatically generates the database, tables and columns... on-the-fly. It infers relations based on naming conventions. Download RedBeanPHP Now. RedBeanPHP is written by BDFL Gabor de Mooij and the RedBeanPHP community.
