See the new Reportico 7 in action here
You can try the new release by following this link
Its now much easier to write code to include Reportico, link to a database and define the query, page formatting, groups, charts and expressions .. for example.
\Reportico\Engine\Builder::build() ->properties([ "bootstrap_preloaded" => true]) ->datasource()->database("mysql:host=localhost; dbname=DATABASE NAME")->user("USER")->password("PASSWORD") ->title ("Employee List") ->description ("Produces a list of our employees") ->sql (" SELECT EmployeeID employee_id, LastName last_name, FirstName first_name, BirthDate birth_date, Country FROM northwind_employees ORDER BY Country, LastName ") ->execute();
You can view the Reportico framework documentation and examples here
composer create-project reportico-web/reports
This will create a reportico folder with the latest release and with your specified name.
To run your existing report projects against this release, you will need to generate new project and move the xml files in from the old projects.
