Admin Dashboards - Open-Source and Free

Sm0ke on July 23, 2019

Hello Coders, Based on the community reaction regarding my previous articles, related to open-source React Dashboards and Vue dashboards, I decid... [Read Full]

Awesome list! Please do one on automation of Vuejs / javascript code.


Hello KP,
Can you elaborate, please?


Hi @sm0ke ! Looking at your profile, you know a thing or two about automation....and I'm wondering if you know enough about automation of Vuejs / javascript code to write an article about that.

Hello @KP,
Yep, I will. Right now I'm using sort automation for Vue, React apps, but I'm still in the R&D phase. My current work-flow:

  • Use the Html Parser to extract the components
  • Inject Components, layouts in Vue, React boilerplates.
  • Apps are built on a decoupled architecture, where the backend and the frontend are separated.

Anyway, I'm years behind Nuxt, and other tools, but in the end, my automation flow produces apps with usable UI, which is great IMO.

@sm0ke : Nuxt is great but incredibly complex imo. I'm playing with laravel + inertiaJs at the moment, and am loving it. Look forward to seeing what you cook up!

AppSeed - App Generator - this product put together my whole R&D work for the last two years.
The hidden fact about it is that I'm using automation to generate apps for different technologies:

  • vue, react
  • full-stack boilerplates
  • jamstack apps
  • bulma css apps

More will come, in the near future because my flow becomes faster. Apps can be used without an account because we all knew that open-source is a sexy thing.

Now I'm looking for options to migrate legacy Bootstrap apps to Bulma CSS & Tailwind. I will provide an open-source tool for this in the next 2mo. The idea is not mine, check out this tool, written in Php. :)

I will code the tool in Python / BS4 with an extension to Tailwind. But this is another R&D jump.

@sm0ke ...great work! Looks like a lot went into this. For some reason I thought automation meant testing (versus automated builder tools). This is pretty cool, too!


Hi Sm0ke! Great article. I've always been curious as to how Admin dashboards work. Can you do a beginner article on how to use a simple one and it's benifits and such? A primer, if you will. :)


Hello @kaushalgautam ,
I will try to add the topic you suggest on my list.
I have some articles related to dashboards topic but are related to Flask. Take a look, and tell me if you find them useful.


The first link is good. I skimmed through it and I believe there are things I don't know in it. I will check it out. A dashboard primer would still be great though. :)


This is gold ✨
Can you do one for Angular too? And not just dashboards.. but also include landing pages etc. 🔥


Yeah, people always seem to miss out on Angular.. even though it's widely used


Hello Marcus,

Angular is a great library, but I'm writing my articles starting from my own experience and Angular is not on my tech list, unfortunately.

Happy coding :)


This is great, thanks!! Always nice to see what others are making in the dashboard space.


Awesome! Request if you can share the same for Angular 7 :)


Hey Sm0ke .. any plans to support Spring framework boilerplate with VueJs?


Hello @razrcallahan ,

Thanks for noticing this article. Nope, sorry. Java is too heavy for my toolchain. I'm continuing my R&D to light resources like Flask, Static sites, and small footprint frameworks.

Spring is great but I'm working alone in my startup.
We can chat on my Discord if you want.

See u!


Such a great thing! Thanks for putting this list together, it'll come in handy on the next two projects I'm building.
