Administrate vs SQLdep: What are the differences?
Administrate: Rails framework for creating flexible admin dashboards, by thoughtbot. Administrate is heavily inspired by projects like Rails Admin and ActiveAdmin, but aims to provide a better user experience for site admins, and to be easier for developers to customize; SQLdep: Transform your SQL code into data flow maps. SQLdep is a cloud service generating data-lineage from SQL code or stored procedures. By transforming SQL code into visual maps developers are relieved from routine and time consuming tasks.
Administrate and SQLdep can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by Administrate are:
- No DSLs (domain-specific languages)
- Support the simplest use cases, and let the user override defaults with standard tools such as plain Rails controllers and views.
- Break up the library into core components and plugins, so each component stays small and easy to maintain.
On the other hand, SQLdep provides the following key features:
- generating data-lineage
- metadata management
- reverse engineering of SQL code
