Argon Dashboard - Open-Source Design

Hello! This article presents a curated list with open-source starters crafted on top of Argon, a popular UI Kit developed and released for free by Creative-Tim agency. All mentioned starters are released under the MIT License that permits unlimited copies for hobby & commercial end-products. On top of this, most of the starters are available for download directly from Github, without a registration lock. Thanks for reading!

Argon Dashboard is built on top of Bootstrap 4 with over 100 individual components, giving you the freedom of choosing and combining. Using this UI Kit any developer can prototype fast a new project by reusing the existing assets and pre-built pages.

You will save a lot of time going from prototyping to full-functional code because all elements are implemented. This Dashboard is coming with pre-built examples, so the development process is seamless, switching from our pages to the real website is very easy to be done.    

Argon Design Django

This free template aims to help Python programers to skip over the part when they decide the codebase structure and code basic things like authentication and prepare the deployment. Here is the complete list with product features:

  • 👉 Up-to-date dependencies: Django 3.2.6 LTS
  • 👉 SCSS compilation via Gulp
  • 👉 SQLite Database, Django Native ORM
  • 👉 Session-Based Authentication, Forms validation
  • 👉 Deployment: Docker, Gunicorn / Nginx

Probably the most easier way to get started with this seed project is via Docker. Once the source code is downloaded from Github (public repository) or product page, we need to execute a single command (inside the sources):

$ docker-compose up --build

At this point, we should be able to access the app in the browser, create users and authenticate.
