    I second Rails. It's incredibly polished and has really good gems to speed up dev. ActiveAdmin is a great gem if you need to quickly make an admin dashboard. It was useful when I had a small consultancy.

    Until recently, my default Admin was ActiveAdmin library. But I found it a bit challenging onboarding new engineers with Inherited Resources gem. Also, a lot is changed on the frontend side with webpack, and now esbuild. I would like to use TailwindCSS to simplify the development. IMHO, ActiveAdmin legacy makes it way more complicated for customization to a new project.

    I can't speak much about Rails, as I've only played with it. But I've used a lot Django in the past.

    Regarding the Django admin (in rails you have ActiveAdmin[1]) think if it just as a glorified database explorer. It is an internal tool for developers, product managers and maybe for your support team. It is in no way thought to be used by end users. Every attempt I've seen to use it as such was a catastrophic failure.

    With Django, if you know plain HTML and CSS, with the tools I've mentioned in the comment you're responding to, you can build almost anything... For example, let's say you need a highly interactive client side table.... you can always just attach a Vue or a React component for it by using Unpoly compilers [2].

    I'd say this stack is less useful the more your app needs to work fully offline... but if you don't have that constraint... I cannot think of anything that can't be built faster and safer.

    And then we wrote some tooling around that to essentially enable all the...Rails engines aren't really built for this kind of marginalization. Usually, Rails engines are for people to write what you can consider a Rails plugin. For example, Active Admin is implemented as a Rails engine and a number of other open-source projects out there where there's a whole pluggable piece, a mini-application that including your project may be pointed to your domain models, and it'll work. It'll have standalone pages, standalone UI that is usually implemented as a Rails engine.

    For the people who are very much in the Rails development, you definitely should've used Activeadmin on one of your projects. If not, please have a look at it. It is an amazing gem ran by a very understanding community.

    Besides, you can read code for base components from arbre and activeadmin components. Those are the components your custom ones will inherit from. Also, check out the gem activeadmin_addons – it has a lot of interesting custom components.

    input_wrapping from Formtastic::Inputs::Base::Wrapping module is responsible for input wrapping and rendering error output and hints. label_html from Formtastic::Inputs::Base::Labelling module renders the label for input. These two helpers instantly turn our hello world into a combat-applicable input. Last but not least, format_attribute from ActiveAdmin::ViewHelpers::DisplayHelper is a helper method for rendering input values.

    Now, have a look at what we have added. input_html_options is a parent class method, which returns HTML attributes for the input. builder - is an instance of the class ActiveAdmin::FormBuilder, inherited from ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder. template is the context in which the templates are executed (basically, a huge set of view-helpers). Thus, if we need to create a piece of form, we'll call builder. While if we want to use something like link_to, template will help us.
