A framework for creating flexible, powerful admin dashboards in Rails. Try the demo.
Administrate is still pre-1.0, and there may be occasional breaking changes to the API. Check the release notes for important updates.
What Is Administrate?
Administrate is a library for Rails apps that automatically generates admin dashboards. Administrate's admin dashboards give non-technical users clean interfaces that allow them to create, edit, search, and delete records for any model in the application.
To accomplish these goals, Administrate follows a few guiding principles:
- No DSLs (domain-specific languages)
- Support the simplest use cases, and let the user override defaults with standard tools such as plain Rails controllers and views.
- Break up the library into core components and plugins, so each component stays small and easy to maintain.
To customize the appearance, behavior, and contents of the dashboard, we publish a set of guides for the current release.
These guides are available as markdown files in the
docs subdirectory of the
git repository, too.
Please see CONTRIBUTING.md.
