Connect entities by one to one, one to many and many to many associations. Define owner and inverse entity or MN entity and aliases. Smart wizards will help you create Doctrine associations in no time.
Create and edit Doctrine inheritance via intuitive dialog simply and quickly. Choose base and derived entity, set up inheritance type and define inheritance discriminators.
With Skipper you can create indexes by a few clicks. In user-friendly visual interface define all needed indexes and choose fields indexed by them.
You can edit any of your model properties directly in visual model. Skipper offers unique Property Editor where any value can be modified.
You can customize configurations for your Doctrine project. Define your own datatypes, custom properties, add new behaviors or change existing properties.
Support for MVC frameworks
No matter, which MVC framework you use, whether it is Symfony, Zend or any other. Definition files generated by Skipper have support for any existing MVC framework.
We have good use of the tool. It simplifies our daily work, saves us time and is simple and intuitive to use.
Thomas Somoen, Try/Apt
It saved us a lot of time designing and configuring complex data models. It is impressive to see what this software achieves on its own.
Michael Stoye, ColorGATE
Simply put, for us, Skipper is not just a tool to master, but a mastermind that teaches us the best programming practices.
Can Berkol, Biber Ltd
Skipper is especially helpful in the initial data modeling phase. Exporting the data model and scaffolding makes it really easy to get a first prototype up and running in a matter of minutes.
Jörn Wagner, Explicatis
Skipper is a stable and easy to use schema designing tool! No documentation, just design and everything is documented!
Siebe Vos, Inform'aid
It is faster and gives less errors to have Skipper create the mapping code instead of writing it myself. Later in the development process I often use the Skipper diagram as a quick reference.
Herman Peeren, Yepr
It simplifies our work because it saves us time. With features added over time like adding behaviors to Propel in Skipper it has become an unmissable tool in our organisation.
Erwin te Bos, aXtion
We use Skipper on our daily basis for ecommerce software development. It lets us visualize at a glance the data models and work on them in a simple and easy way.
