    Backoffice is a Framework based on Material UI, a Material Design React implementation that provides a couple of components you might want to use in a backoffice app.

    Backoffice also uses react-router-dom, @material-ui/icons, material-ui-picker and some more OSS.

    The purpose of Backoffice is to provide an easier to use framework to generate applications that are mainly designed for working with data. For example for CRUD-APIs.

    If you have a list of data and you want to be able to update and delete entries in the list as well as create new ones (CRUD) Backoffice helps you to build an application in "no time".



    If you use yarn, just run the following command in your project’s root directory.

    yarn add backoffice

    Or using npm:

    npm install --save backoffice

    Using components

    You need to create your own React application, that takes care of routing (at least for now), handling state and so on.

    Within any of your components you can use a given component by importing it to your application:

    import Menu from "backoffice/Menu";

    You can then use the component within your render logic:

    const MyMenu = ({ menuData, redirectTo }) => (
      <Menu data={menuData} redirectTo={redirectTo} />

    Examples & Demo

    You can find examples in examples/.



    The AppContainer provides the generic styling as well as the possiblity to povided your own theme (based on Material UI's colors).

    • theme: Theme, theme configuration, theme palette as described here

    You could use the AppContainer-Component like this:

    import React from "react";
    import AppContainer from "backoffice/AppContainer";
    import { indigo, amber } from "@material-ui/core/colors";
    const theme = {
      palette: {
        primary: {
          light: indigo[300],
          main: indigo[500],
          dark: indigo[700],
        secondary: {
          light: amber[300],
          main: amber[500],
          dark: amber[700],
    const MyApp = () => (
      <AppContainer theme={theme}>This is my application</AppContainer>
