API Platform Admin

Build Status npm version

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.

Demo of API Platform Admin in action

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 from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { HydraAdmin } from '@api-platform/admin';

const Admin = () => <HydraAdmin entrypoint="https://demo.api-platform.com" />; // Replace with your own API entrypoint

ReactDOM.render(<Admin />, document.getElementById('root'));

Or alternatively:

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import {
} from '@api-platform/admin';

const Admin = () => (
    // Use your custom data provider or resource schema analyzer

ReactDOM.render(<Admin />, document.getElementById('root'));


  • Automatically generate an admin interface for all the resources of the API thanks to hypermedia features of Hydra
  • Generate list, create, show, edit screens as well as a delete button
  • Generate suitable inputs and fields according to the API doc (e.g. number HTML input for numbers, checkbox for booleans, selectbox for relationships...)
  • Generate suitable inputs and fields according to Schema.org types if available (e.g. email field for http://schema.org/email)
  • Handle relationships
  • Pagination support
  • Automatically validate if a field is mandatory client-side according to the API description
  • 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
