Motivation to write this article

The existing Top 20+ React Dashboards articles, most of them, are written by publishers with this bad habit of sniffing a lot of commercial apps in the content, without mention this aspect in the title.

I’m not saying this is good or bad, but is not obvious if the apps are free or not, just by reading the title. Well, this is not the case here. Let's go!

AntDesign may seem nice, but when it comes to performance, it really sucks.

We use antd in production, never had any performance issue. For those searching, Antd is full typescript.

Unfortunately I choose ArchitectUI for a new project. This template is poorly documented and its file structure is over complex. Now, I am struggling for about a week trying to put the components together in a more simple and logical way. As a comparison, I used the React template from Creative Tim before, and in about one day I had everything ready for development.

Indeed, the code structure is super important. If you have the time, try to provide some feedback to the Architect UI team. Maybe you are not the only one with this kind of problems and the next versions might be better.
Regarding Creative Tim, I'm also using their products. They are pretty good.

Hi Oscar,

I am building an AWS Amplify project and was thinking of using a Creative Tim material dashboard.  I have already generated my create react app and started developing.  If I bought a pro dashboard could I just take bits I want and use in my own project, would be great to get some advise as I have never used one of these dashboards before and don't want it to waste time when its supposed to save time, thank you.

Hi Alan,

I would suggest that you try one of the free templates first to ensure that you will be using a significant part of the product. I am saying this because most of the templates out there are composed manly of open source components. The template vendors basically put the components together in a nice and concise way, which is a considerable workload. So if you are planning to use the design part of the template, definitely is a good investment.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks Oscar,

That's a good idea actually. I will download the free version and see how I can manage with it.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Awesome list! Now lets checkout all those new tabs I have opened. Hope to find one with TypeScript.

Hi Arend,

I read your comment about these dashboards sometimes being difficult to implement. That has crossed my mind also, I seen a nice dashboard on creative tim but would like to just take bits of it and add to my project if i buy the pro version. Is this possible or do i have to install the whole thing. I'm not sure that will work for me as i have started a create react app aws amplify project. It would be great to get your thoughts. And why are my replies on dev.to appearing strangely??!!

So, did you find any using Typescript or should I also checked all my newly open tabs? ;-)

Haha, I did not find any to my liking. Another thing to note is that these dashboards are often so bloated with features that it takes more time to understand and adapt, then to create your own. It does help to have a basic admin layout template, perhaps get inspired by some of the widgets from this list. But my advise would be to build your own.

This is the feeling I had looking at a few of them.
Is there a basic admin layout template you can recommend to start building my own?

Hi,
I am begin\er with basic knowledge of HTML,CSS and REACT.

Which one of these themes is well documented, as I am beginning to setup my first project using react.
I am trying to make a Factory/Warehouse Information Management System.
I am an Embedded Developer , I wish to add features like real time data logging of sensors and environment.
Can you recommend which theme or platform should be used ?
Also am I right in choosing REACT ?
