Propeller is a graphical DBMS tool based on Propel.


Clone the project, install the dependencies

git clone https://git.sitilge.id.lv/sitilge/propeller.git propeller && \
cd propeller && \
composer install

Then add propel command to the excecution path (adjust the /path/to/propeller respectively)

export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/propeller/vendor/bin/


By default, settings are stored under src/Config/Database/Config

cd src/Config/Database/Config

Next, initialize (the easy way) or setup your own config (the hard way). Let us use the easy way; run

propel init

And use your settings to setup the connection to the DB. The following Q/A will lead you through the questions asked by the final steps of the initializer

  • Q: Where do you want to store your schema.xml? [/var/www/propeller/src/Config/Database/Config]: A: .
  • Q: Where do you want propel to save the generated php models? [/var/www/propeller/src/Config/Database/Config]: A: ./../
  • Q: Which namespace should the generated php models use?: A: Models
  • Q: Please enter the format to use for the generated configuration file (yml, xml, json, ini, php) A: php

Next, it is important to edit the freshly generated schema.xml and add the behavior Propeller is relying on. Just add the following line after the opening database tag

<database ...>
  <behavior name="Propeller\Models\BehaviorModel"/>

Now it is time to build models - the backbone of Propel and Propeller. Models will be stored under src/Config/Database/Models

propel model:build

Then create the runtime configuration file by executing

propel config:convert

Finally, inform composer about the generated Models and run

cd ../../../../ && \
composer dump-autoload


Propeller uses the convenient concept of Propel behaviors. The default settings can be overriden by editing the respective ***Query model, residing under src/Config/Database/Models/Models. The method that Propeller invokes is init and edits must be introduced there

class ***Query extends BaseUsersQuery
    public function init()
        //disable row delete

        //show the column in table view
