Basic CRUD

Search, create, update, and delete entries using a convenient UI, auto-generated based on your Rails model definitions. All changes in Rails models are automatically applied into the Motor Admin panel on page refresh.

Forms builder

Create custom forms and integrate them with your Rails API to implement complex business processes. No need to develop HTML/ERB forms - they can be created much faster and with less code using the WYSIWYG builder.

Enhanced reports

Create data dashboards using SQL and visualize the results with charts, markdown or Liquid template. Share periodic reports with your team members via email with report alerts.

User Testimonials

"Although we have been customizing various admin UIs for 15 years with Rails and recently with JavaScript, I got very excited when I discovered Motor Admin. There are a lot of useful features around admin operations and dashboards, yet very little code to manage."

"Motor Admin has become my go-to tool for building admin UIs. As a busy consultant, it allows me to focus on building the business logic that the client is actually paying for, and saves both myself and the client countless hours of development time."

"Building and forming an interface across the app locally and transferring it into production is super easy with Motor Admin. I'd definitely recommend it for SaaS apps, especially over the competition for Rails."

"I was starting my new startup and I didn't want to implement too much code and I wanted nice charts and the ability to run custom queries without coding. I came across Motor Admin and since then I've been recommending it to every other developer I know."
