Components

Resource Components

AdminGuesser

<AdminGuesser> renders automatically an Admin component for resources exposed by a web API documented with any format supported by @api-platform/api-doc-parser (for Hydra documented APIs, use the HydraAdmin component instead, for OpenAPI documented APIs, use the OpenApiAdmin component instead). It also creates a schema analyzer context, where the schemaAnalyzer service (for getting information about the provided API documentation) is stored.

<AdminGuesser> renders all exposed resources by default, but you can choose what resource you want to render by passing ResourceGuesser components as children. Deprecated resources are hidden by default, but you can add them back using an explicit <ResourceGuesser> component.

// App.js
import { AdminGuesser, ResourceGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";

const App = () => (
  <AdminGuesser
    dataProvider={dataProvider}
    authProvider={authProvider}>
    <ResourceGuesser
      name="books"
      list={BooksList}
      show={BooksShow}
      edit={BooksEdit}
      create={BooksCreate} />
    <ResourceGuesser name="authors" />
  </AdminGuesser>
)

export default App;

Props

Name Type Value required Description
dataProvider object dataProvider yes communicates with your API
schemaAnalyzer object schemaAnalyzer yes retrieves resource type according to Schema.org vocabulary
theme object theme no theme of your Admin App
includeDeprecated boolean true or false no displays or not deprecated resources

ResourceGuesser

Based on React Admin Resource component, <ResourceGuesser> provides default props CreateGuesser, ListGuesser, EditGuesser and ShowGuesser.

Otherwise, you can pass it your own CRUD components using create, list, edit, show props.

// App.js
import { AdminGuesser, ResourceGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";

const App = () => (
  <AdminGuesser
    dataProvider={dataProvider}
    schemaAnalyzer={schemaAnalyzer}
  >
    <ResourceGuesser
      name="books"
      list={BooksList}
      show={BooksShow}
      create={BooksCreate}
      edit={BooksEdit} />
    <ResourceGuesser name="reviews" />
  </AdminGuesser>
);

export default App;

ResourceGuesser Props

Name Type Value required Description
name string - yes endpoint of the resource

You can also use props accepted by React Admin Resource component. For example, the props list, show, create or edit.

Page Components

ListGuesser

Use hasShow and hasEdit props if you want to display show and edit buttons (both set to true by default).

By default, <ListGuesser> comes with Pagination.

// BooksList.js
import { FieldGuesser, ListGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";
import { ReferenceField, TextField } from "react-admin";

export const BooksList = props => (
  <ListGuesser {...props}>
    <FieldGuesser source="author" />
    <FieldGuesser source="title" />
    <FieldGuesser source="rating" />
    <FieldGuesser source="description" />
    <FieldGuesser source="publicationDate" />
  </ListGuesser>
);

You can also use props accepted by React Admin List.

CreateGuesser

Displays a creation page for a single item. Uses React Admin Create and SimpleForm components. For simple inputs, you can pass as children API Platform Admin InputGuesser, or any React Admin Input components for more complex inputs.

// BooksCreate.js
import { CreateGuesser, InputGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";

export const BooksCreate = props => (
  <CreateGuesser {...props}>
    <InputGuesser source="author" />
    <InputGuesser source="title" />
    <InputGuesser source="rating" />
    <InputGuesser source="description" />

  </CreateGuesser>
);

export const BooksEdit = props => (
  <EditGuesser {...props}>
    <InputGuesser source="author" />
    <InputGuesser source="title" />
    <InputGuesser source="rating" />
    <InputGuesser source="description" />
    <InputGuesser source="publicationDate" />
  </EditGuesser>
);

ShowGuesser

Displays a detailed page for one item. Based on React Admin Show component. You can pass FieldGuesser as children for simple fields, or use any of React Admin basic fields for more complex fields.

// BooksShow.js
import { FieldGuesser, ShowGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";

export const BooksShow = props => (
  <ShowGuesser {...props}>
    <FieldGuesser source="author" />
    <FieldGuesser source="title" />
    <FieldGuesser source="rating" />

// App.js
import { HydraAdmin, ResourceGuesser } from "@api-platform/admin";

const App = () => (
  <HydraAdmin
    entrypoint={entrypoint}
    dataProvider={dataProvider}
    authProvider={authProvider}
   >
     <ResourceGuesser name="books" />
