Free HTML Admin Templates For The Backend Of Your Apps

Almost every application or dynamic website requires a backend to manage it.

These admin screens come bundled with ready-to-use apps (like WordPress, Magento, etc.) but custom apps need custom backends.

It is usually considered as a simple process to create an admin template but, most of the time, this requires a lot of effort as there are lots of things (usually related to usability) to think of.
