View Full Version : Web front end for database question -- need advice

February 16th, 2011, 05:01 AM
Hi Folks:

Historically, I have been making MS Access databases for the company I work for. We are now upgrading a lot of server equipment and moving data into a private cloud. As a result, I need to move away from Access databases and make web front ends to a database backend. This is in part because I simply want to avoid MS Access, but also to streamline the business workflow.

What I want to do is have a MySQL server back end and a web front end that employees can log into and use on a daily basis, all day long. I have been looking into various options and am thinking that Django might do the job. However, I don't want to start into a project with Django to find that it isn't the best answer. It seems that Django is a clean, efficient and "don't repeat yourself" style.

Any thoughts on Django as a MySQL web front end?

django is just a framework. I wouldn't do any serious work with a framework while you are still learning. it will take time and effort figuring out how any given framework behaves.

PHPMyAdmin is an web front end to DB.

If you want to do your own go for Web2Py.
