Restful Api Generator / Creation Tool Needed

I am looking for some flexible, opensource software that I can use to create restful api backends. So basically I want to create a database and then connect this software to it and have it create an api backend.
Can anyone recommend any software for this?

On all the tables in your DB or just some of them. Are there related tables?

How are you going to be passing data to the tables - will it be all fields or just some of them. The effort required to write an API to do simple CRUD is very straight forward.

A simple google search should find what is out there.

For example - I came across this one https://github.com/mevdschee/php-crud-api

Have a look at ApiGility

They provide an out of the box solution for generating custom API's that are fully customisable and include documentation.

I've checked that one out but what I'm looking for is something that just needs pointing to the database and will generate the api code. Also I want to host it myself.

The idea is that I can spend my coding time creating the frontend, which talks with the api that's been created from the database / tables.

How will it generate the API code - to do what - how is it supposed to know what you want to do in your API?
