Get started with ExpressJS

Forest Admin helps hundreds of companies manage their data

Maxime Sraïki, VP Tech at BAM (Theodo Group)

As an architect, I have developed 10+ admin panel with open-source frameworks and third-party solutions like Forest Admin. My preference now goes to Forest Admin both when I want to create a quick MVP for personal projects and when I need to build a strong internal tool with high security, audit trails and the ability for operations to customize their tool autonomously.

Fully-featured ExpressJS admin panel, enabling you and your teammates to easily manipulate and visualize your ExpressJS app data

1° Connect to your ExpressJS app in 5 minutes

Add our open source backend agent into your ExpressJS app.

This agent introspects your data model and creates an Admin API hosted on your servers.

The Forest Admin interface is a web application that handles communication between the Laravel admin panel user and your ExpressJS application data through the Admin API.

We never see your data, we only host and manage the front-end.

2° Build your ExpressJS admin panel with components automatically generated from your data

Instantly benefit from your CRUD operations. The API automatically supports your data models' validation. Easily extend or override any API routes' with your custom logic.

Forest Admin has a built-in search allowing you to run basic queries to retrieve your application's data. Set advanced filters based on fields and relationships to handle complex search use cases.

3° Code your custom actions, views, workflows, charts and more

Custom Actions: go beyond CRUD operations and code actions with your custom logic.

Custom Fields: combine fields to use in your ExpressJS admin panel without altering your database.

Custom HTML/CSS: create custom visualizations of your data, from maps to galleries.

And more, from custom charts to virtual relationships between your collections.

Loved by developers

No access to our data was a fundamental element in our technical partner selection. Glad that Forest Admin’s API model fit our requirements.

Go beyond ExpressJS admin panels

Keep your data within your environment, secure

Thanks to our unique architecture, your data goes through the admin API hosted on your servers, right into your end-user browser interface. It remains completely invisible to our servers, so it can never be accessed or stored by anyone other than you.
