Forest is relying on your stack conventions, REST APIs, and JSON API.
Want to add all kinds of snazzy features? The code is yours to play with and under GPL License, so hack away!
Your interface tailored to your business needs without writing a line of code.
Instant set-up, infinite possibilities.
The magic of Forest lies in its architecture.
Forest is comprised of two main components: the Forest Liana (an open-source agent) and a front-end application (UI).
The Forest Liana is an open-source plugin that analyzes all your data model and generate the Admin API.
The web application of Forest Admin, accessible from any browser. Your data are transferred directly from your browser to the Admin API while remaining invisible to the Forest servers.
If you’ve already architectured your application for microservices or you’re planning to, Lumber’s admin sits nicely alongside your regular services.
Lumber is a tool that will enable you to use Forest Admin on any web app with an SQL database.
It's the perfect solution to plug an admin interface alongside your existing project, whether it’s used by a few, or a hundred.
Lumber is an open-source tool that generates a new lightweight web app (in Node.JS) which is compatible with our Forest Liana. For the rest, it's the same as with the liana.
As this admin is our main product, every detail
matters. We strive to create a great experience for
our end-users. We’ve made all the work for you when
it comes to generic features. And for the remaining features that
are strongly specific to your app, you’re
free to add them smoothly on top of Forest, as you
would have done with your hand-made admin project.

As with any application, building a great admin
interface takes time and requires a strong vision.
Most of admins developed inhouse have a bad UX with
very limited features. An admin interface can bring
way more value than performing simple CRUDs. Due
to limited resources and time scheduled for the admin
development, all other useful features are left for
the future, when more time can be devoted to the
admin interface. Developers are all facing the same
issues and are constantly reinventing the wheel.
Forest’s framework is here to finally solve all those
issues. Forest is quick to set up and is flexible
enough to match any specific needs.
