Admin Dashboards - 20+ Open-Source Admin Panels built with automation tools

Hello Coders,

In this short article, I will present a curated list with open-source web apps coded in Python / Flask and released under permissive licenses (MIT, LGPL) that might help students and beginners to code and deploy a real project. All apps presented here are generated using automation tools, boilerplate code, and HTML parsers. The features, common to all apps:

  • Open-Source, released under the MIT, LGPL
  • Dual database setup, SQLite for local development and PostgreSQL for - production
  • Apps are generated using automation tools and boilerplate code
  • Clean code-base, helpers and basic tooling
  • Deployment Scripts: Docker, Gunicorn

In a rush? Check out the full index here: open-source admin panels. Also, this list is open to suggestions, feel free to mention more open-source apps in the comments.

How to Build the Apps

All Flask starters share the same code-base and the build instructions are identical for all projects. For instance, if we want to build Flask Dashboard Black boilerplate, we need to write a few simple commands in a terminal window:

$ # Get the code
$ git clone
$ cd flask-black-dashboard
$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Unix based systems)
$ virtualenv --no-site-packages env
$ source env/bin/activate
$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Windows based systems)
$ # virtualenv --no-site-packages env
$ # .\env\Scripts\activate
$ # Install modules
$ # SQLIte version (no PostgreSQL)
$ pip3 install -r requirements-sqlite.txt
$ # OR with PostgreSQL connector
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ # Set the FLASK_APP environment variable
$ (Unix/Mac) export
$ (Windows) set
$ (Powershell) $env:FLASK_APP = ".\"
$ # Set up the DEBUG environment
$ # (Unix/Mac) export FLASK_ENV=development
$ # (Windows) set FLASK_ENV=development
$ # (Powershell) $env:FLASK_ENV = "development"
$ # Start the application (development mode)
$ # --host= - expose the app on all network interfaces (default
$ # --port=5000    - specify the app port (default 5000)  
$ flask run --host= --port=5000
$ # Access the dashboard in browser:

If all goes well, the app should be visible in the browser
