2.2.0 • Public • Published


    A frontend Framework for building admin applications running in the browser on top of REST/GraphQL services, using ES6, React and Material Design. Open sourced and maintained by marmelab.

    • Data Validation
    • Custom actions
    • Large library of components for various data types: boolean, number, rich text, etc.
    • WYSIWYG editor
    • Customize dashboard, menu, layout
    • Super easy to extend and override (it's just React components)

    Read the Tutorial for a 15 minutes introduction. After that, head to the Documentation, or checkout the source code of the demo for an example usage.

    At a Glance

    // in app.js
    import React from 'react';
    import { render } from 'react-dom';
    import { Admin, Resource } from 'react-admin';
    import restProvider from 'ra-data-simple-rest';
    import { PostList, PostEdit, PostCreate, PostIcon } from './posts';
        <Admin dataProvider={restProvider('http://localhost:3000')}>
            <Resource name="posts" list={PostList} edit={PostEdit} create={PostCreate} icon={PostIcon}/>

    The <Resource> component is a configuration component that allows to define sub components for each of the admin view: list, edit, and create. These components use Material UI and custom components from react-admin:

    // in posts.js
    import React from 'react';
    import { List, Datagrid, Edit, Create, SimpleForm, DateField, TextField, EditButton, DisabledInput, TextInput, LongTextInput, DateInput } from 'react-admin';
    export PostIcon from '@material-ui/core/svg-icons/action/book';
    export const PostList = (props) => (
        <List {...props}>
                <TextField source="id" />
                <TextField source="title" />
                <DateField source="published_at" />
                <TextField source="average_note" />
                <TextField source="views" />
                <EditButton basePath="/posts" />
    const PostTitle = ({ record }) => {
        return <span>Post {record ? `"${record.title}"` : ''}</span>;
    export const PostEdit = (props) => (
        <Edit title={<PostTitle />} {...props}>
                <DisabledInput source="id" />
                <TextInput source="title" />
                <TextInput source="teaser" options={{ multiLine: true }} />
                <LongTextInput source="body" />
                <DateInput label="Publication date" source="published_at" />
                <TextInput source="average_note" />
                <DisabledInput label="Nb views" source="views" />
    export const PostCreate = (props) => (
        <Create title="Create a Post" {...props}>
                <TextInput source="title" />
                <TextInput source="teaser" options={{ multiLine: true }} />
                <LongTextInput source="body" />
                <TextInput label="Publication date" source="published_at" />
                <TextInput source="average_note" />

    Does It Work With My API?


    React-admin uses an adapter approach, with a concept called Data Providers. Existing providers can be used as a blueprint to design your API, or you can write your own Data Provider to query an existing API. Writing a custom Data Provider is a matter of hours.

    Data Provider architecture

    See the Data Providers documentation for details.

    Batteries Included But Removable

    React-admin is designed as a library of loosely coupled React components built on top of material-ui, in addition to controller functions implemented the Redux way. It is very easy to replace one part of react-admin with your own, e.g. to use a custom datagrid, GraphQL instead of REST, or bootstrap instead of Material Design.

    Run the example

    You can run the example app by calling:

    npm install
    make run

    And then browse to http://localhost:8080/. The credentials are login/password


    Pull requests are welcome. You must follow the coding style of the existing files (based on prettier), and include unit tests and documentation. Be prepared for a thorough code review, and be patient for the merge - this is an open-source initiative.

    You can run the tests (linting, unit and functional tests) by calling

    make test

    If you have coding standards problems, you can fix them automatically using prettier by calling

    make prettier

    If you want to contribute to the documentation, install jekyll, then call

    make doc

    And then browse to http://localhost:4000/

    Note: if you have added a section with heading to the docs, you also have to add it to docs/_layouts/default.html (the links on the left) manually.

    If you are using react-admin as a dependency, and if you want to try and hack it, here is the advised process:

    # in myapp 
    # install react-admin from GitHub in another directory 
    cd ..
    $ git clone && cd react-admin && make install
    # replace your node_modules/react-admin by a symbolic link to the github checkout 
    cd ../myapp
    $ npm link ../react-admin
    # go back to the checkout, and replace the version of react by the one in your app 
    cd ../react-admin
    $ npm link ../myapp/node_modules/react
    $ make watch
    # in another terminal, go back to your app, and start it as usual 
    cd ../myapp
    $ npm run
