AdminLTE - Open-Source Django Starter

Hello Coders!

This article presents AdminLTE Django, an open-source Django Dashboard crafted on top of the latest stable version of AdminLTE, an iconic Material UI design.

The product, available for download on Github under the MIT License, has been updated recently to use the latest Django version (3.2.6 LTS), SASS compilation via Gulp, and improved Docker scripts.

Probably the simplest way to get the product up & running in a local environment is to use the Docker setup as presented by the official product documentation and README file (saved on Github).

Step #1 - Download the sources from the product page

$ unzip
$ cd django-dashboard-adminlte
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step #2 - Start AdminLTE Django in Docker

$ docker-compose up --build
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Once all commands are executed we should see this simple Django dashboard running in the browser:
