There comes a time when every developer must pay the admin panel toll. Some enjoy the work, and some would prefer to work on the core product; either way your team needs to interact with the database, and those numbers aren't going to chart themselves. Thankfully, if you're using React, there are a bunch or pre-made templates available to build off of. This piece will cover your best options and help you figure out what to use for your project.

(For a more general comparison of available admin panel frameworks, check out our 2020 roundup here.)

The 10 Best React Admin Templates in 2020


React admin templates are templates for admin dashboards that are built in React and can be customized to fit your needs. Most templates come loaded with features for UIs, widgets, and apps, plus the ability to add custom React components.

Some important features to be on the lookout for:

  • Multi-browser support (for at least Firefox, Safari, and Chrome)
  • Data handling with Redux
  • Light and dark mode functionality (all the cool kids use dark mode)
  • Color schemes to choose from

For each template, we’ll cover:

  • Price — Cost to purchase the template
  • UI components — The number of UI components, like buttons and menus
  • Prebuilt pages — Website landing pages, like Login and Error pages
  • Prebuilt applications — Fully functional applications, like a ToDo List
  • Prebuilt dashboards — Fully functional and customizable dashboards

1. Material Dashboard React: Best for free

While the paid version includes 200 UI components and eight sample apps, the free version still has 30 UI components available and seven sample apps, so you’re still got a bunch to work with.

5. Wieldy: Best for easily customized layouts


Screen-Shot-2020-06-08-at-4.26.29-PM

In every React admin template on this list, you’ll find more than one layout option. For some, that just means having the navigation panel on the left or right. Wieldy is the only React admin template on this list to offer 10 different layout options. You can choose to have a clean layout with the admin panel behind a hamburger menu or move the panel to the top, and you also have clear control over what data and menu options are displayed in the panel.
