node.js needs a django admin equivalent


The thing that most people don’t get is that django admin is not a web database management GUI like phpmyadmin. It’s a tool for managing the content in an ORM scenario and uses structure + meta data to do some clever things.

The thing is, we’ve had ORMs in node for a very long time. Why are we all still building the same CMS systems for node over and over? Also, I want it to be back end agnostic (just for mongo is stupid).

Just FYI, 15 years ago, everybody built CMS systems, because there was no simple solution to building them. Now? Everyone builds on some type of framework. It’s not the final solution, but it’s the “get up and running fast” solution that we need.

This lack of solid admin interface is a problem for node, and it’s future.

So where is the django admin equivalent for node?
