Boilerplate Code - Built on top of Material Design

Hello Coders,

This article presents a curated list with boilerplate code projects released under the MIT license, suitable for hobby or commercial products. Using boilerplate code to start a new project, sometimes might be a good idea based on the fact that basic features like authentication, database, maybe tooling are already set up and ready to be used.

Boilerplate Code  - short-list

All apps presented in this article are generated by the AppSeed platform in different patterns and programming languages using automation developer tools, HTML parsing and boilerplate code. I will not insist on this workflow, and curious minds might read more about this concept in a dedicated article: Boilerplate Code - Open-Source Starters built with automation tools. Thanks for reading!

First goes first, and for new comers we will explain the boilerplate code concept:

Boilerplate code

In computer programming, boilerplate code or just boilerplate are sections of code that have to be included in many places with little or no alteration - Wikipedia definition.

Basically,  boilerplate code is a piece of software that can be reused over and over without changing a single line of code. The whole idea behind a starter (sometimes boilerplate code) is to skip coding that piece of code common to many projects. For more information regarding this topic please access:

Boilerplate Code - the short-list

All apps presented in this article are published on Github, in the official AppSeed repository.


Material Design

Material is a design system – backed by open-source code – that helps teams build high-quality digital experiences - The Official Product Quote

Material Design is a design system created by Google, supporting onscreen touch experiences via cue-rich features and natural motions that mimic real-world objects. Designers optimize users’ experience with 3D effects, realistic lighting and animation features in immersive, platform-consistent GUIs.


Flask Material Admin

This beautiful material design is crafted by BootstrapDash and comes with an impressive number of UI elements and quite a few pages, already built for an admin panel common use. The app is generated with a minimum set of features and modules like: authentication, database, ORM and deployment scripts.
