Hello QuickDBD!Author: Tihomir Kit
For the last couple of months we’ve been working on a side-project here in Dovetail. Martin and Trevor wanted a tool to quickly draw/prototype database diagrams by typing. So, we’re happy to announce QuickDBD! We decided to wrap it in a shiny design and make it a little product which we hope others will find useful as well. In time, if there is enough demand we’ll expand the feature set. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know on our roadmap Trello board.
In the process of making QuickDBD, a lot of cool, interesting technologies were used and no programming languages were harmed! We used things such as AngularJS, Typescript, JointJS (for diagram rendering – awesome library!), Karma and Jasmine (for testing), Angular Material and SASS on the front-end, .Net WebAPI, xUnit and MS SQL on the back-end and we automated our build-test-deploy pipeline with bower, gulp, TeamCity, Octopus Deploy and Azure. A very interesting journey!
We hope you like QuickDBD same as we do. If you have any feedback, please let us know!
