    I am just wondering with the deprecation of the visual designer (Which is all I have ever used) does the fluent model have a way of looking at existing tables and generating classes based on them? If so is there a tutorial on how to do that?

    I have installed the fluent sample class through the NuGet package and toyed with that a little but, however if I need to create a class for each table I have then map it or if there is some wizard that can do all the coding for me?

    While I understand that the xml based files are a pain to code in and also a pain to source control (I have had many issues on my team with it... that we were able to work through) I really think doing away with the visual designer is a bad idea.

    Hi Jonah,

    Thank you for contacting us and for the honest feedback.

    Currently, there is no code generation tool that can fill the gap in the DB-first scenario left by the Visual Studio integration, and all changes in the database should be added in the model manually.

    We have an idea to ease the things about this situation through a tool (simpler than the New Fluent Model wizard)  and your support about it will be appreciated. 

    Thank you for  your understanding. Let me know if you need further information.
