    Hello, I’m a backend dev with some JS/React experience but not too much. I have an existing, pretty standard REST API and I’d like to have a functionally basic (but extensible and ideally nice-looking) React-based CRUD webapp to call it, with a minimal amount of upfront work. A bit like Rails/Django but for the frontend: declare your models and api endpoints, get Create/Details/Update/Delete/List pages (or in this case, routes) for each of your models, override whatever you want if you need to. I’ve found react-admin, which seems to be generally what I want, except I’m not a big fan of material designpersonal opinion and not meant to start a flamewar. I would have assumed there would have been tons of similar frameworks, given how many webapps these days are fundamentally CRUD frontends, but I can’t really find others. I’ve found a number of posts on hq overview which suggest using vanilla JS or jQuery for simple CRUD apps. While I’m sure this is doable, it seems like a lot of reinventing the wheel and probably not the fastest or even most reliable way to get where I want. Am I not looking in the right place? Are there in fact lots of other React CRUD frameworks? If not, why not? Still if not, is it easy to make material UI look more like e.g. bootstrap? I specifically dislike things like nonobvious text fields and the button-click “wave” animation, which seem to be present in all material UI themes I see. Thanks for the help! – by hq overview pm_me_voids – –
