Most code generators are bloated, poorly designed, and just plain trouble.The
only code generator that I currently like, is the one for CakePHP, but
you'll have to do some heavy reading to get up-to-speed on how to develop
with Cake (especially considering it uses Object Oriented development
principles, and the Model-View-Controller code separation pattern)

If you put any time into CakePHP at all, I guarantee you'll like it.
To generate code with Cake, you build your database tables for whatever data
you're needing to store (and it's best to structure your tables using cake
conventions), then from command line, you use "cake bake", which will allow
you to build your controller, model, and view for each table.

Bake will allow you to automatically build create/read/update/delete
functionality for every table, it will automatically detect which tables
have related data, and will set up your code so that you can easily
reference data between each table.

It's a definite must-have, but I'm not sure how it would be for a PHP
newbie. I believe there are several CakePHP books out there for the newbie
that should get you up and running fast.
