RedwoodJS Admin

Hi everyone!

I’ve created a RedwoodJS Admin panel generator for RW projects.
It’s a tool that reads your prisma.schema file and generates a full admin panel.

Some features includes:

  • Automatically generated from your prisma.schema file
  • Just re-generate if you update your models
  • Automatic navigation, with icons
  • Search
  • Pagination
  • WYSIWYG-editor
  • Radmin user management
  • Relations support (one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many)
  • Custom components for displaying data
  • Custom actions

You can read more here

This is going to be a paid tool. But let me know if you’re interested in trying it out and I’ll help you get set up. Just go to and sign up for the newsletter, reply to this thread or send me a DM


does it read the schema on the fly? or we have to regenerate everytime we update the model?

this is one of the great feature i miss from django. really helpful

You need to manually regenerate. I thought about having a watcher on the schema file, but it does take a little while to generate (just like RW’s scaffold generator), so I decided it’s better to manually trigger it for now.

Maybe in the future I can run a diff on the schema file and only regenerate the parts that changed and maybe then it’ll be fast enough to do it on the fly :slight_smile:

In the future maybe this can be another side in rwjs… now we have /web, /api… next, /admin


I’ve now added a newsletter signup form to, please sign up if you’re interested in trying out Radmin

One of my users wanted to be able to change how dates are formatted, so I’ve added that now.

Here’s a screenshot of where I’ve changed the default relative dates to a more common 2023-10-14 21:53 style


The /// @radmin-date tripple slash comment is new. As an “argument” to that comment you can pass either relative or a formatting string like yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm. You can also use single or double quotes if you want "relative", 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm'.
I’m using date-fns to format the date, so all their standard formatting options are available:

Here’s one column with custom date formatting, and one column that uses the default relative setting

And if this doesn’t cover your needs you can define a custom component or formatting function to use instead when displaying your dates/times.

Would love to try this out @Tobbe – running into the constantly regenerating scaffolding issue and this is what I’m after. Seems like a Django admin of sorts!

I’d also like to try this out- hoping to get a more complete panel than what RW has out of the box. For my current application, a couple of features I would want include custom querysets for relations (to limit the options in the to relevant items) and some custom UI & actions based on some GIS concepts (eg. Point and click on a map to create new entities). Very curious how these requirements will mesh with your implementation.

What are your plans pricing-wise?

@jason-curtis Sorry I’m late to respond here, I’ve been traveling.

Your use case sounds really exciting! And I’d be curious to know how easy you’d find it to customize it to your needs

I was thinking a monthly fee, or a one-time purchase that equal the subscription price for a little less than two years

Feel free to DM me for more details
