What is refine?

refine is a React-based framework for the rapid development of web applications. It eliminates repetitive tasks demanded by CRUD operations and provides industry standard solutions for critical parts like authentication, access control, routing, networking, state management, and i18n.

refine is headless by design, thereby offering unlimited styling and customization options.

What do you mean by "headless" ?

Instead of being a limited set of pre-styled components, refine is a collection of helper hooks, components, and providers. They are all decoupled from UI components and business logic, so that they never keep you from customizing your UI or coding your own flow.

refine seamlessly works with any custom design or UI framework that you favor. For convenience, it ships with ready-made integrations for Ant Design System, Material UI, Mantine, and Chakra UI.

Use cases

refine shines on data-intensive applications like admin panels, dashboards and internal tools. Thanks to the built-in SSR support, refine can also power customer-facing applications like storefronts.

Quick Start

The fastest way to get started with refine is by using the superplate project starter tool. Run the following command to create a new refine project configured with Ant Design System as the default UI framework:

npx superplate-cli --preset refine-antd my-project

Once the setup is complete, navigate to the project folder and start your project with:

npm run dev

Your refine application will be accessible at http://localhost:3000: Welcome on board Let's consume a public fake REST API and add two resources (posts, categories) to our project. Replace the contents of src/App.tsx with the following code:

import { Refine, useMany } from "@pankod/refine-core";
import {
} from "@pankod/refine-antd";
import routerProvider from "@pankod/refine-react-router-v6";
import dataProvider from "@pankod/refine-simple-rest";

import "@pankod/refine-antd/dist/styles.min.css";

const App: React.FC = () => {
    return (
            resources={[{ name: "posts", list: PostList }]}
            catchAll={<ErrorComponent />}

export const PostList: React.FC = () => {
    const { tableProps } = useTable<IPost>();

    const categoryIds =
        tableProps?.dataSource?.map((item) => ?? [];

    const { data, isLoading } = useMany<ICategory>({
        resource: "categories",
        ids: categoryIds,
        queryOptions: {
            enabled: categoryIds.length > 0,

    return (
            <Table<IPost> {...tableProps} rowKey="id">
                <Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="title" />
                    dataIndex={["category", "id"]}
                    render={(value: number) => {
                        if (isLoading) {
                            return "loading...";

                        return data?.data.find(
                            (item: ICategory) => === value,
                    render={(value) => <DateField format="LLL" value={value} />}

export default App;

interface IPost {
  title: string;
  createdAt: string;
  category: { id: number };

interface ICategory {
  id: number;
  title: string;

Now, you should see the output as a table populated with post & category data: First example result
