AdminJS is an automatic admin interface that can be plugged into your application. You, as a developer, provide database models (like posts, comments, stores, products or whatever else your application uses), and AdminJS generates UI which allows you (or other trusted users) to manage content.

Inspired by: django admin, rails admin and active admin.

Example application

What kind of problems it solves

So you have a working service built in Node.js. It uses (for example) Hapi.js for rendering a couple of REST routes and mongoose as the connector to the database.

Everything works fine, but now you would like to:

  • view all the data in the app,
  • perform custom business actions on objects in the database,
  • bootstrap the tables with the initial data,
  • build custom report pages,
  • allow other team members (not necessary programmers) to see what is going on in the application.

And all these cases can be solved by AdminJS. By adding couple of lines of code you have a running admin interface.


  • CRUD any data in any resource
  • Custom actions
  • Form validation based on schema in your resources
  • Full featured dashboard with widgets
  • Custom resource decorators
