Code Example

This is how you do CRUD in RedBeanPHP:

    require 'rb.php';
R::setAutoResolveTRUE );        //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. RedBeanPHP is written by BDFL Gabor de Mooij and the RedBeanPHP community.

Zero Config

No verbose XML files, no annoying annotations, no YAML or INI. Zero Config. Just start coding.

Fluid Schema

During development, RedBeanPHP will adapt the database schema to fit your needs, giving you the NoSQL experience. When deploying to production servers, you can freeze the schema and benefit from performance gains and referential integrity.
RedBeanPHP offers the best of both worlds!


RedBeanPHP is a compact library yet packed with features: auto-discovery of models, deep copying and smart import features will boost your productivity!
