CodeKit - Universal Code Description Lookup Table
All Code Sets
Add a New
The code administration page lets you define new virtual code tables and enter all codes and their descriptions. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements.
Do some live data entry!
Make up new code sets. Enter some new codes.
Have fun. Cleaned up automatically once a day.

Make some selections and watch CodeKit strut its stuff!
All without an ounce of programming. Well, maybe
one ounce. You do have to call CodeKit :-)
CodeKit is available here
as free software in PHP and Perl.
The current version is CodeKit-1.07.

CodeKit Administration Page
Take a look at the code administration interface
in read only mode with clean data.
Code description lookup tables are an important part of any database. They define the choices available for codified fields and supply the human readable descriptions for display purposes.
However, the naive approach of creating one new database table for each code description set involves a large software complexity overhead.
I have designed and programmed many universal code
tables during my career. A universal code table
places all of the code tables into a single database
table. That single universal database code table
hosts as many virtual code tables as desired
with no schema changes or coding.
