Admin Dashboard With Database - Free Projects to start fast

Hello Coders,
This article presents a curated list with admin dashboards with database that can be used in development right after the download. Usually, admin dashboards are provided by vendors as templates, without any functionalities, database, or authentication flow. Well, the products listed on this page come at least with a database and other useful things on top: authentication, charts, user profile pages etc. Most of the dashboards are open-source, released under permissive licenses (MIT, LGPL) on Github.

To use a database in a dashboard project we need a functional backend that manages the SQL part and translates the SQL responses to HTML, the format expected by the browsers. Dashboard Templates usually provide only the HTML pages without functional features like login, registration, or other flows (render charts, edit user information) .. etc.

Samples presented in this article use technologies and frameworks like Flask, Django and NodeJS to render and manage the database information: emails, passwords, charts, user profile information. This information (backend technology and database type) is mentioned for each product.

Django Charts Argon

This open-source dashboard comes with an SQLite database and functional code that showcases different metrics regarding the sales for a 12 months timeframe: total sales, total orders, best sale, and best month (in sales value).
The information is imported from an external file (csv/xls format) and the authenticated users are able to add new records and even edit existing values. The charts are updated once the new information is saved.
