Pros: PHPRunner makes it easy to develop web based prototypes rapidly with minimal hassles. This product has saved us tens of thousands of dollars in development costs allowing us to free up budgets to be spent elsewhere on projects. We also built out internal applications for CRM and for gathering metrics with reports, charts, and graphs without having to pay for subscription services or additional software.

Cons: No hidden field option is the biggest issue at the moment. There is a plug-in on the marketplace, but it's a work around and I would like to see the ability to view/edit a field as hidden option of add/edit pages.

I also wish that there was a way to do look-up fields based, but display as read only. So if someone enters "Code 123" in an AJAX look up the next field would read: "Error in ABC Subsystem". The current option of having it display as a drop down field of 1 is functional, but not exactly how we'd want it to look.

Overall: I've been using PHPRunner now for over a decade at 3 different companies and one political campaign. Every time I've noticed the product lacking in some area it seems like the next update addresses the limitations. For a while MD5 was the only option for password hashing and that was obsolete even when PHPRunner v8 was released. I was pleased to see the option given for Bcrypt in Version 10 as well as things like SMS service integration, two-factor authentication, and more Map features including the option of using more than just Google Maps.

The other area where we have to spent most of our time in coding is payment API for anything beyond a simple Auth/Capture at check out. Technically E-Commerce should run an authorization at time of checkout and then capture when the product is shipped or service delivered. Also support for things like PayPal's Billing API features would be nice if you aren't sure the exact price at time of check out for charging things like no-show fees for service based businesses. Customer isn't charged, unless they fail to show for an appointment opposed to having to charge an upfront deposit.

Something else I'd like to see in a future version would be support for Apache Cordova allowing one to build hybrid mobile apps from PHPRunner with a few clicks similar to the "Build Desktop" option now.

Pros: PHPRunner solves complex web-development problems with a holistic approach. It has a friendly Windows client for design and development. Your DB scheme can be developed within the client, using Maria-MySQL, MS-SQL, DB2, MS-Access, Postgres, Oracle, SQLite, ODBC, you name it. Authentication for your app with static or dynamic permissions is built-in and easily modified. A flexible interface with many design themes can be used to design your pages, including modern interface (grid sorting and rearrangement). Reports and charting (bar, line, gauge, pie, donut, stacked column, etc.) are easily done with the platform. Import and export of data is supported. Mobile web app interface can be included. Built-in menus with customization, built-in email capabilities, etc. etc. etc. Built-in distribution/update to your host. I could go on and on. Most importantly, event customization capabilities that allow you to tailor special features above and beyond the system is easily retained and re-merged as you enhance and add to your application. My experience goes back at least 5 major and many minor versions and over 8 years. Support is very good. They have REALLY helped me and my business!

Cons: There is very little to dislike. If anything, keep in mind that you should strive to stay reasonably current as web methodologies change (like the advancement of PHP versions). Keep up to date with your web host and their PHP and MySQL/Maria versions. Xlinesoft has done a great job improving and enhancing this offering, and in keeping the solution current with modern web technologies.

Overall: We market and sell the following cloud-based solutions that were built with PHPRunner: Employee Performance Management (with built-in 360 Feedback); Customizable Industrial Skills Testing; and Employee Engagement and Survey solutions. All built and improved over several years using the capabilities of PHPRunner.

Pros: Ease of use, stability, integrates well with databases and other products. The latest version (10.1) of PHPrunner provides allows formatting of final panels presented to the user in a very intuitive environment.

I have been using their products since 2005 and have always found them to be solid and reliable.

The best part is the intuitiveness that it provides, having a computing experience that spans many, many years

I started in the development and programming of systems in 1968, retiring as IT Director for a fortune 1000 enterprise in 2002 for the 1st time and still going with my own company.

Cons: I would say although the Help portion is very extensive, sometimes it falls a bit short of providing the answer. Understanding that it is impossible to provide answers to every event or case...

Overall: It has provided a product which has a very short learning curve due to its intuitive format.

I use it to support multiple enterprises which include.

* Healthcare.

* Non Profit Organization, that uses it to support over 26 public schools with a program where kids help kids,

titled, Helping Hands Ending Hunger.

* Book Publishing.

* Metallurgical Fabrication Enterprise.

* Various Small mom-and-pop operations.

Very Rapid Application Development!

Pros: Our team works in the research environment so we need to be able to move fast. The biggest issue in R&D is people saving all of their data in Microsoft Excel. In the past, creating a database and an associated interface took too long and so people were never interested in using a database. Now with PHPRunner we can have an interface in front of the research team after one meeting and less than an hour. Then we can rapidly work through changes as they need. So we have moved from weeks to hours.

Almost always, the PHPRunner has more options out of the box than the user is expecting and hoping for. Search, Advanced Search, printing, saving to PDF, Export usually excite the users. Being able to connect to our company Active Directory makes it nice for the users because they don't need to have yet another username and password.

All of our PHPRunner users are programmers so it is a very easy jump for them.

Cons: Wish it had some more options for look and feel. All the apps that we create look fairly similar. We have not taken the time to write custom CSS.

On import, it would be nice if PHPRunner built the code to do the look-ups into a related table so we don't have to do the prelook-up to find the ID number and do that conversion ourselves.

Overall: PHPRunner has allowed us to please our researchers quickly and easily! It is making it easier for us to get our data into highly structured format earlier in the process.

Quick installation, great tutorials built-in and on the website, quick answers from support.

Pros: I love the approach this software takes to creating and managing PHP applications, which allows even beginner to novice, and even intermediate to advanced, programmers to write great PHP applications without much detailed knowledge. Obviosuly the more you know the better application you can write, but this program makes creating a new PHP application from scratch so much easier than opening a document and starting to write code from scratch. Many things are as easy as drag and drop, but you do need a firm grasp of how PHP works - this isn't word press style PHP or anything like that, but it is the same principle. I really love how fast and clear answers from support come. Any question I have ever asked has been answered completely, clearly, and in far less than 12 to 24 hours - and they don't just give you the answer, they explain it and give you links to examples on their site if they have them.

Cons: This is a hard one to write because feature wise, they continuously update and add customer requested features, and if the software doesn't have something you want it is easy (if you know what you are doing) to code your own sections. I guess if there is a CON I would say it is the cost, or rather the lack of extended payment options. Their core price is reasonable given what the program is capable of, but given that most programs these days have monthly or annual options to "rent" the program while staying current, I would like to see these guys do the same or similar. I also think that only giving 90 days of support with a new purchases is little cheap, even though they do include a year of updates with new purchases. Call me old fashioned, but whhen I spend that kind of money I expect a year of support, minimum.

Overall: Using PHPRunner allows me to create everything from simple to complicated PHP/SQL backed applications in minutes/hours rather than days/weeks/months. Depending on what kind of project you are writing, this program can save you lieterally hundreds of hours - which has in turn let me bid out projects for a fraction of the price of competitors, which is a crucial step for small businesses as mine.

Pros: Provides a robust way to maintain PHP and JS code whilst giving total flexibility and ease to vary database tables and fields. Straightforward to use and updates tend to not require us to have to update much code. Superb amount of functionality which continues to grow. Built in security is fantastic which is crucial for our clients. Allowed us to integrate with Bing maps with relative ease.

Cons: Some parts require more coding knowledge than I have personally and hence would welcome more examples in the help file.

Overall: Over the last 5 years we have developed a very complex piece of software combining Bing Maps, MySQL/MariaDB and code generated from PHPRunner. This is a very complex application that enables territory design, catchment analysis, customer segmentation, location planning and much more. Crucial was the need to be able to integrate all spatial functions of the map with the back end database and without PHP Runner this would not have been possible. We have huge amounts of custom code and the Events functionality provided by PHP Runner gives us a robust way to maintain code across many different system configurations. Very highly recommended

Pros: I have been using phpRunner since 2008. I have tried most of the other rapid development software packages and in my opinion, phpRunner was the best choice. I love their latest feature, the new Designer GUI. If you're familiar with Microsoft Access, the Designer GUI is similar. You can drag & drop your fields. You have a properties selection area on the right side. The software is divided up like Access. You start with the Table area GUI, the Query GUI, setting up your field properties and search setting. Then a choice of Security settings. Then you have the Designer GUI and then the Events area. Once you finish building your project you can upload it to the server with their built-in FTP setup.

Their support is great and has always been very helpful.

Cons: Like with any software there is a small learning curve.

Overall: I built and currently administer a web-based Payroll system, a Benefits system, and an Equipment Inventory, Performance and Location system.

Pros: there is a lot to appreciate in this program for example:

-speed to do a program

-makes it easy to find your want to do in the program everything is already almost available for you

-the help file is really explicit

-the double possibility available: web and desktop version

--the speed of compiling your project

the administrator part is really easy to manage

-the possibility of creating tables

-there are so many I leave you to explore it yourself.......

Cons: very small or almost not ... because everything is already available to us users ... and if there is a note in the forum already the staff is already close to add what you want in the next update ... .

Overall: with this program I have created a lot of programs for these clients, and currently I am working on a big national project with phprunner and I find the satisfaction during the different presentations of the project .......... you do not regret to choose this last .....

Pros: I have used for 15 years. Without it , I probably would have given up on web applications without it . The RAD Application connects to my database easily , gives me query options , the types of pages I need for each table , field properties are easy to enter. It then gives me and editor/designer tab GUI for ease of use and then an events tab with revisions to easily add extra queries , send email , add database values to other tables , check for records and alert using javascript and so much more with intellisense added and syntax error checks . Building is easy and ftp . Done ? I have written applications with 20 tables in as little as 2 days .

Cons: Would Like to see a REST API to tie in mobile / Hybrid application with PHPrunner .

Overall: Quite Frankly , It makes me look like a full stack developer which I am not.

Pros: It saves me from having to learn PHP coding from scratch and helps to rapidly build the applications without much coding. You can connect to multiple databases and you are not limited to just one. The themes are fantastic and you don't really have to do much improvisation. Dashboards are a fantastic feature and makes your application look more professional.

Cons: Nothing to dislike, just that sometimes you got to think outside the box if you want extra things to be done, but then again the support is fantastic. I submit a ticket and get a response the very next day and nowhere do I get this kind of service.

Overall: Basically, I am the CEO and developer for a company. I build PHP applications (of course, I'm using PHPrunner) for Training companies which helps them to load their learners and also allows their clients to see what training has been done and also see the trends every month. This has helped training companies boost their client bases which is a win for me.

Pros: You can get used to it very quickly and the help is also very good with many practical tips and examples. I have been using phpRunner for many years. There were also some problems with new versions, but the phpRunner-Team personally helped me quickly. I am very satisfied with the program. I especially like the simplicity with which you create the framework of a web application. The user entry points for my own snippets of code are also well-chosen.

Cons: What I do not like is that in new versions always new features are added, although there are still enough construction sites from previous version. The largest construction site is the designer, which I finally had in version 9.8 under control. Then came version 10 and that was all different, here I need some time to get used to, especially in applications with many data fields, this is difficult. Here are a few practical examples of CSS or templates, how to optimize the large gaps between fields, how the pages will look as chic as in version 9.8 (with the old design templates).

Overall: But all in all, I can really recommend the program. Dear phpRunner-Team, keep up the good work. I have created many small data collection projects with the program, e.g. for collecting electricity meter data, managing employees and working hours, idea management, help systems, metering, etc. And I have also made 2 big applications: inventory control system with over 10000 items and a program to manage strain measurements, charts, peaks, test patterns.

Pros: phpRunner is very easy to use, in a matter of minutes you can have your database tables converted to good looking web forms. The new form designer is a big help to drag and drop the database fields exactly where you want them. To add security to your web app is also with the click of a few buttons. The database menu is also very easy to maintain, as the basic menu is setup for you.

You can literally have your web app up and running within a couple of minutes. Best part, you do not need to know php programming to accomplish this.

Cons: The phpRunner main system is still a bit slow. The designer still have some small issues, with a few errors.

Pros: I love the fact that you can take an existing Database and with some programming migrate it right into PHP runner given you a professional and customizable web site for your database. I was able to take membership databases and incorporate them so that no matter where the customer was, they could add/edit and lookup data making it great for the gym membership databases that I was servicing.

Cons: The ability to support certain USB devices like signature pads - they all can not incorporate into the software.

Overall: Ever since I started using PHP Runner, I have nothing but praise - From the software, their web hosting services and overall service, PHP Runner is number one in my book.

Pros: Very fast to develop a web application with the security built in. Having log in and dynamic permissions is a great feature. I have developed fully functional database applications in one single day.

Overall: I've used PHPRunner since 2009 when I had ZERO knowledge of PHP. I have used the application mostly for data management systems. The knowledge I've gain using the software is incredible.

Pros: I've been using this software for 15 years and I love everything about it. I researched other PHP/ASP code generators and this is by far the best. Easy to use out of the box and the cost is a steal. I love the support.

Cons: n/a. I've never had an occasion where I've thought of anything I didn't like.

Overall: Best experience I've ever had developing business solutions quickly. Works with all the database I'll ever use. I can have an application developed from scratch and published to the web in less than 15 minutes, and it looks great. Before this I wrote the entire programming code from scratch and took forever. Since using this I've never had to write code, other than occasionally entering special events. The team is constantly making enhancements and adding new functionality. I'm always excited to get the notification that a new release is out to see what else they've include that makes my life better. I will never go back.

Pros: PHPRunner supports variety of databases like MySql, PostgreSql, SQL server and many more. There are ample of themes are available which helps you to design you webpages. It offers large number of ready made templates to make your work easier. You can also create customizable charts and reports in PHPRunner. You can modify or create any table from the PHPRunner only.

Cons: As such now I haven't not seen any disadvantages but yes for a new software you need some learning which is also required for this one too.

Overall: By making websites through this software and selling to the customer we are making business benefits.

Pros: It allows to create good looking working pages without writing single line of code. However, for more experienced developers full power of PHP and JavaScript is available. There are lots of pre-defined elements like lookup fields, tabs and sections which can be managed via built-in API. Runner also provides some charting features, not as simple as Excel but still quite useful.

Cons: Documentation is scarce, lots of things are to be guessed. Some parts (like Web reports) are not upgraded to ver. 10 and offer ugly 600px wide windows without proper customization. Still has some bugs.

Overall: I have created multiple applications with it - phonebook, chemotherapy injections, part of blood bank, medical scheduling system, online cancer registration form (full portal with self-registration) and counting.

Pros: I used this software when i was trying to build a solution for one of my clients and there was no time to start from scratch. I explored hundreds of solutions; none worked to my requirements. Luckily i came across this product, and was amazed how easily it created the website/webforms and linked UI with backend. The amount of customization it supports is amazing, almost all DB's u can think of, great features on the fly like exports to word, excel and pdf, inline edits were really helpful. Wish you guys all the best going forward... Keep up the excellent job! I dont think there is any product in the market which even comes close to your capabilities!

Cons: I cant think of any at the top of my head. Installation was very smooth, however a code and db backup strategy would really be helpful!

No Max/Min button for Insert Code Form - would be handy especially when you write a lot of custom code for a button or snippet

Pros: ease, the power,

Very powerful tool for satisafaire to many need. It is unfortunate that business developers refuse to use this type of tool even more accessible than most frameworks.

It becomes almost too simple for them to devleopper quality interfaces!

Cons: Having more parameters stored in base rather than in configuration files would be a plus (lookup, etc ...). This would develop even more dynamic interfaces.

Open the product using APIs.

Homogenize the function versions used

It lacks the possibility of having an automatic documentation of the code of a project.

Overall: In just a few days, we have developed a shared data collection portal as part of the Open Data project. It seemed impossible to achieve under these conditions with our tools and resources in development.

This Proof ef concept is monitored by national agencies for its ability to help communities open their public data

We received a trophy from a national newspaper La Gazette des Communes. Trophy "the best strategic approach to open data in the territory" thanks to this POC developed with phprunner

Pros: I like the amount of customization available. The software works great right of the box and then being able to customize my application to my needs is ici g on the cake. I have been using PHPRunner for about 8 years and the improvements are great and keep with the times.

Cons: Not much to say negatively about the product. For my needs, the product has worked for me. If I were to say one thing is the newer version is a bit slower when moving through it than previous versions.

Overall: Overall, great product. The amount of databases you can connect to is awesome as well as the other features make this a viable option for a quick application.

Pros: I have been a user of PHP runner through many of its versions and it provides an easy to use mechanism for creating Front ends to the MYSQL databases we develop. ITs easy to check progress as work develops by doing a quick build and checking the design and functions

Cons: See find it difficult to develop a good graphical product with the software. The new version has made the layout process easier but still some way to go to compete with other software products. But they are often harder to use and more expensive

Overall: A good product for doing rapid database front end development.

Pros: Got more functionality, more flexible page layouts and functionality like dependent look ups. No need to buy a costly SaaS. We did a big review of may low code alternatives for converting our MS Access 2010 order system to a Web based system and had actually given up when we came across PHPRunner, which had ready made functionality for most of our needs. Detailed feed back to our questions were all given within 24 hours. We also see that we do not pay per user.

Cons: None so far. We are in an early learning phase but have already programmed 50% of the complete application.

Overall: Complete ERP system for translation business - Conversion from MS Access 2010.

Pros: Ease of use, Out of the Box capabilities, and ability to add libraries as we need.

Cons: Lack of the ability to have an application template that can be deployed to multiple databases. For example building an application that is associated with MySql for one client and then redeploy the same template to Oracle for a different client.

Overall: We build application s for almost every single client using PHPRUNNER. Our experience has always been positive. We have been using XLinesoft's products forany years with success.

Pros: It's amazing to see that within minutes, yan can have a form online ( we create a lot of forms and tools on our company intranet ) to fullfill any kind of requests coming from numerous deparments. My last project was a simple tool to manage some software license allocations. It used to be manage on an Excel sheet with many issues, now, it so much easier to track any changes to our licenses allotment. Events coding also helps us out a lot to manage some special requirements.

Cons: Not always easy to get some form elements to fit precisely as we wish but we always find our way through somehow

Overall: From smal to medium projects, from database beginners to experiences, PHPRunner is a no-headach solution to whatever size of businesses. Desktop & mobile class web forms is the way to go for us now...
