    Default Module Builder Schema Report

    Is anyone familiar with a tool that will create a report, schema or diagram for the modules designed within a custom package built with Module Builder? I would like to see the Modules/Fields/Relationships in at minimum a report. A diagram would be even better.

    TIA

    If nothing currently exists to accommodate this, does anyone else think this would be a useful project to get started?

    If so I'll start laying down the foundation and post on the LegalStack github repository. I've done this for a few other platforms and found it quite useful for managing quality control and internal developer documentation.

    Hi Steve,

    I've seen this request before, but don't know of any out of the box solutions. If you're looking to write your own, I can point you in the right direction though - the fields themselves are all defined in the modules/ModuleName/vardefs.php file in each of the custom module directories and the associated relationship definitions get pushed to custom/metadata. By combining the two of them, you should be able to build up a decent view of the associated schema. Yes, it does sound like a reasonable project to start, if only to make it simpler to provide documentation to clients around the schema for their projects

    Hi Steve,

    Yeah it sounds like a simpler and better approach to view the customized structure of sugar. It would be of great help to both the developers and clients.

    Regards

    Thanks, I'll post back when I have reasonable progress to share.

    Just bumping the thread to thank everyone for their input. I've got the Module Builder reporting moving along well. I'm now developing a framework for reporting on Studio modifications. The goal is to get a quick, comprehensive perspective on all modifications in a specific Studio instance. Wish me luck! L :-)
