RailsAdmin is a Rails engine that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing your data.

It started as a port of MerbAdmin to Rails 3 and was implemented as a Ruby Summer of Code project by Bogdan Gaza with mentors Erik Michaels-Ober, Yehuda Katz, Luke van der Hoeven, and Rein Henrichs.

Features

  • Create new data
  • Easily update data
  • Safely delete data
  • Custom actions

  • Authentication (via Devise)
  • Authorization (via Cancan)
  • User action history (internally or via PaperTrail)
  • Supported ORMs

Demo

Take RailsAdmin for a test drive with sample data. (Source code.)

Installation

In your Gemfile, add the following dependencies:

gem 'fastercsv' # Only required on Ruby 1.8 and below
gem 'rails_admin'

Run:

$ bundle install

And then run:

$ rails g rails_admin:install

This generator will install RailsAdmin and Devise if you don't already have it installed. Devise is strongly recommended to protect your data from anonymous users. Note: If you do not already have Devise installed, make sure you remove the registerable module from the generated user model.

It will modify your config/routes.rb, adding:

mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin' # Feel free to change '/admin' to any namespace you need.

Note: Your RailsAdmin namespace cannot match your Devise model name, or you will get an infinite redirect error. The following will generate infinite redirects.

mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin'
devise_for :admins

Consider renaming your RailsAdmin namespace:

mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/rails_admin', :as => 'rails_admin'
devise_for :admins

See #715 for more details.

It will also add an intializer that will help you getting started. (head for config/initializers/rails_admin.rb)

Finally run:

$ bundle exec rake db:migrate

Optionally, you may wish to set up Cancan, PaperTrail, CKeditor, CodeMirror

More on that in the Wiki
