API Platform Admin

Build Status npm version MIT Licence

API Platform Admin is a tool to automatically create a beautiful (Material Design) and fully-featured administration interface for any API supporting the Hydra Core Vocabulary, including but not limited to all APIs created using the API Platform framework.

The generated administration is a 100% standalone Single-Page-Application with no coupling to the server part, according to the API-first paradigm.

API Platform Admin parses Hydra or OpenAPI documentations, then uses the awesome React-admin library (and React) to expose a nice, responsive, management interface (Create-Retrieve-Update-Delete) for all available resources.

You can also customize all screens by using React-admin components and even raw JavaScript/React code.


yarn add @api-platform/admin


import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { HydraAdmin } from '@api-platform/admin';

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return <HydraAdmin entrypoint=""/> // Replace with your own API entrypoint

export default App;

  • Send proper HTTP requests to the API and decode them using Hydra and JSON-LD formats
  • Nicely display server-side errors (e.g. advanced validation)
  • 100% customizable
