As you can see the nice people at Inventic are working on cakephp support in ORM Designer.
I must confess, I’m not an hard-core old type vim only developer. I like visual tools.
While cake bake is great, an Entity Relationship Diagram (with ORM exporting) is really handy, specially with larger models / databases. It’s nice to work with something as smooth as ORMD.
So I’m happy to help with suggestions and beta test.
I find the built in validation support really nice. Well, maybe because i suggested it 🙂
I believe this is going to be an effective tool for cake developers too.
