Module Review : SilverGraph

One common question when getting started with silverstripe is how to see the database.

As Silverstripe uses an Object Relational Model (ORM) it holds the relationship information within the php code which makes creating a visualisation with the relationships fully described not straightforward... until https://github.com/froog/SilverGraph came along.

Using this module, after installing http://www.graphviz.org/, is very easy - 

Example output of this module can be seen within it's README.md

I needed to adjust the proc open call in execute with a specific URL but apart from that this is a very useful little module.
