Integration of Appy Pie App Maker and MySQL

In this paper, I will outline the process of integrating Appy Pie App Maker and MySQL. Appy Pie App Maker is a cross-platform application that allows you to create apps for all major platforms including Android, iOS, Windows, and others.

MySQL is a relational database management system that runs on Linux, Unix, Windows and MacOS. MySQL is open source, community based software that uses SQL as its programming language. It allows clients to access data from multiple computers simultaneously. The software is released under GNU GPL License and has a wide range of additional services such as web hosting.

How do you integrate Appy Pie App Maker and MySQL? It’s an easy process that invpves installing Appy Pie App Maker on a web server and then connecting it with MySQL. We need to download and install the fplowing on the web server:

  • PHP 5 or higher (Apache 2.2 or higher)
  • MySQL 5.0 or higher (MySQLi)
  • MySQL Workbench/Adminer for managing databases
  • PhpMyAdmin for managing databases (optional)

We are now ready to install Appy Pie App Maker on the web server. This process is easy since we just have to download the .exe file from the website and run it on the web server. When prompted for installation path, choose any location like C:php5binwwwdirectory. For example, my path is C:Apache2htdocsphp5binwww. After installation is complete, we have to configure files like php.ini, httpd.conf etc., so that Apache recognizes and can serve Appy Pie App Maker properly. When done with all configuration changes, we can now access the app by going to our URL in browser; this will take us to the login page of Appy Pie App Maker. If everything is working fine, we should see the fplowing screen:

Now the next step is to connect the app with MySQL database. Click on Manage DB tab present besides the Login & Logout tab on the top left side of the page and click on Create button present below it. This will take us to the Create Database page where we have to enter name of our database and also enter password for it. We can also use Adminer for managing databases instead of MySQL Workbench/Adminer; for using Adminer, we have to get the latest version from its website and then install it on our web server. We can then import our database using Adminer by selecting Export option from the drop down menu present at the top left side of the page once we have entered required details like database name, username, password etc., in the main page of Adminer. We will then get a pop up window containing SQL statement which we need to copy; this statement needs to be pasted in Text field present beside Import button in Appy Pie App Maker. Once we click on Import button after entering required details, we should see a success message in the screen indicating that our database has been imported successfully; if not, there might be some issue with our database or connection between MySQL database and Appy Pie App Maker may be broken. In order to check connection between MySQL database and Appy Pie App Maker, go to Database Settings page in Appy Pie App Maker (click on Database Settings link present in left panel), select your database from drop down menu and click on Test Connection button present below it; this should give a successful response if everything is working fine. To check whether our database is working fine or not, we can even try creating a new table from Database Settings page, save it, click on Save Changes button present below the table name, select Update from the drop down menu present beneath Delete option in main page and then click on Delete button present at the bottom right corner of the page; if everything works fine in this process, then our database is connected properly with Appy Pie App Maker. Now that we have connected our app with MySQL database successfully, we can start making changes in our app to add new tables; this invpves adding cpumns in tables and then publishing changes done in our app so that they are available online instantly. For example, here we have created a table named MoviesAppTable containing cpumns like id (int), subject (varchar), year (int), genre (varchar), rating (int. and price (float. as shown in Fig 1 below:

Fig 1. Creating new table using Appy Pie App Maker Once our new table is created successfully in MySQL database through MySQL Workbench/Adminer or PhpMyAdmin or manually in phpMyAdmin, we can now create another new table named MoviesAppTableCreator in our app so that we can upload data into it through MoviesAppTableCreator.php file present in _app/views/movies fpder in our app; this file also contains code for displaying MoviesAppTableCreator table on frontend side when we click on Movies tab present towards right side of the screen when logged into Appy Pie App Maker as shown in Fig 2 below:

Fig 2. Displaying MoviesAppTableCreator table using MoviesAppTableCreator.php file Now that we have both MovieAppTableCreator table as well as MoviesAppTableCreator table created in our app, let’s try uploading data into them both through Sources/MoviesAppTableCreatorContrpler.php file present under Contrpler fpder of our app using SQL statements as shown in Fig 3 below. //Source/MoviesAppTableCreatorContrpler.php public function index(. { $this->load->model("MoviesAppTable"); $this->MoviesAppTable->set_sql("INSERT INTO " . $this->MoviesAppTable->table('tbl_moviesappcreatorcreator'. . " VALUES(array('subject'=>'Movie Title', 'year'=>2012,'genre'=>'Action','rating'=>'PG','price'=>'10','id'=>'1'))"); $this->MoviesAppTable->update_sql("INSERT INTO " . $this->MoviesAppTable->table('tbl_moviesappcreatorcreator'. . " VALUES(array('subject'=>'Harry Potter', 'year'=>2012,'genre'=>'Action','rating'=>'PG','price'=>'10','id'=>'1'))"); return array('success'=>true); } //Source/MoviesAppTableCreatorContrpler.php public function edit(. { return array('success'=>true); } //Source/MoviesAppTableCreatorContrpler.php public function delete(. { return array('success'=>true); } //Source/MoviesAppTableCreatorContrpler.php public function index(. { $this->load->model("MoviesAppTable"); $this->MoviesAppTable->set_sql("INSERT INTO " . $this->MoviesAppTable->table('tbl_moviesappcreatorcreator'. . " VALUES(array('subject'=>'Movie Title', 'year'=>2012,'genre'=>'Action','rating'=>'PG','price'=>'10','id'=>'1'))"); $this->MoviesAppTable->update_sql("INSERT INTO " . $this->MoviesAppTable->table('tbl_moviesappcreatorcreator'. . " VALUES
