Material Pro Dashboard

material pro dashboard

Material Pro is a premium quality material design admin dashboard template with flat design. It is a fully responsive admin dashboard template built with Bootstrap Framework, HTML5 & CSS3, Media Query.

The design matches the material canons but looks a bit amateur. Not really balanced. Some images in the template are inappropriate. Some color mismatch. If I had to give it a mark, it would be 3 out of 5. In my opinion, this is the weak side of this template.

It is a simple static HTML template, so it is easy to install. The template has very good documentation. The installation process is described in detail, the structure and all components are also described. Documentation is done nicely, very convenient, and professional.

The admin template has 120+ UI Components. The description is rather colorful, but we are not sure that the number of pages and components is true.

The product has a well-developed support service. The website says that the support works 24 hours. Support is provided through the site, chat, or email. We did not find any information about the frequency of updates to the template.

Price ranges from $39 for Single Use to $79 for Multiple uses and $499 for Extended License. This cost includes 1 year of free support and updates.

Creating Web Apps with Flatlogic Platform

Dashboards come in handy when creating web applications. But at Flatlogic we’ve created a platform that lets us build our Apps from scratch without any additional templates. We’ve simplified web development to five steps. Let’s see how Flatlogic Platform works.

#1: Name your Project

Flatlogic Platform: Name The Project

Choose a name for your project so it will be easy to recognize.

#2: Define the Tech Stack

Flatlogic Platform: Choose Tech Stack

An App contains the front-end, the backend, and the database. Choose technologies each component runs on. In the example we chose React, NodeJS, and PostgreSQL, respectively. Other combinations work great, too.

#3: Choose design

Flatlogic Platform: Choose the App's Design

Flatlogic Platform offers several outfits for your admin panel. Choose the one you like the most.

#4: Build Database Schema

Flatlogic Platform: Database Schema Editor

A schema is the structure of a database. It defines the fields, the data types, and the relationships within the database. The integrated schema editor is easy to use. And if you’re short on time, just pick one of the ready schemas

#5: Review and Finish

Flatlogic Platform: Finishing the Project

Review all the choices you’ve made so far. Choose the “Connect Git Repository” checkbox if you want to. Hit “Finish” when you’re ready. After a brief compilation, the App will be yours to deploy, host locally, and use how you see fit. Nice job, fellow developer!

We will be helpful for you to support us on Twitter (if it’s still alive), LinkedIn, Facebook, and ProductHunt!
