Looking for a code takes the database and creates a page...

Hey guys, so I would like to know if there are any scripts out there (hopefully prewritten ones for sale or free) that could allow me to create a page like this, http://www.topuniversities.com/universities/university-cambridge#subject

from my existing database. Clearly they are pulling a lot of information from their database and it is very interesting. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do it, nor what this is even called. Any ideas or advice? At this point I don't even have a useful google search term for a code that can create a page based on information in the database and comes with some nice CSS as this one does.

What your asking for is a full end to end application.  Something that works right through from the DB data to the page design. Depending on what kind of time you have on your hands you have a couple of options. 



> Pick something off the shelf to get the job done (like AppGini) - be prepared for hair pulling and a random code injected by the builder.


> Commission someone to be built for you, The freelance board is a good start if you have some cash, or else you could try people per hour and hope for someone with both skill and a need to build their portfolio.


> Learn a framework and build your own - make sure the framework you pick fits your needs and has good support, something like KendoUI would probably be a decent option.


> Build your own from the ground up - just make sure you have stocked up on a lot of coffee and that you have no great love for sunlight, friends or fresh air.
