Self-hosted

Jet Bridge is a free and open-source app that generates an API and proxies the requests to databases and business apps: (PostgreSQL, Google Sheets, Stripe, etc). It is available on the Github.
  • We never access your private data. It is transferred directly from a browser to your application.
  • Scale as your growth. You can host and scale Jet projects the way you want. You can choose any hosting platform you want: AWS, Heroku, a VPS, or a dedicated server.
  • Resource agnostic. You can choose the resource you prefer. Jet works with databases or popular API apps: PostgreSQL, Firebase, Google Sheets, Stripe, etc.
  • Customizable. You can quickly build your logic by fully customizing APIs using API Builder.
  • Frontend SDK (Angular, React, Vue). You can build your web apps using ready-to-use SDK.

How it works

Jet Admin is a SaaS frontend application hosted on the Jet Admin side that works in your browser. It connects to your project SQL database through an open-source Jet Bridge backend application which you install on your side. So Integrating Jet Admin with your project requires installing only one component - Jet Bridge. Here's how it should look like after installation:

Your Web App

Any of your applications that work with your Database. Jet Admin does not interact with it directly.

Your Database

Jet Admin has no direct access to your database.

Jet Bridge App

An open-source application is installed on your server's side and connected to your database. It automatically generates REST API based on your database structure. Jet Interface works with the Database through Jet Bridge.

Jet Interface

Web applications are accessible from any browser. Maintaining and updating this web application is on the Jet Admin team's side. Your application data is transmitted directly from Jet Bridge to Jet Interface in your browser and remains invisible for the Jet Admin service.

Install Jet Bridge

Python plugin

Install Jet Bridge without additional software or web services on any server or local host. You will need to install Python dependencies and run the application manually.

Using Jet Bridge inside Docker

Install Jet Bridge without the need to install any dependencies except the Docker application. May require additional network configuration for your OS.

Django framework

To integrate Jet Admin with the Django-based project you need to install the Jet Bridge package. It will work even with your local application on localhost.
Jet Bridge for Django sources are available on GitHub
This is the quickest way to install Jet Admin for Django-based projects. Installed in the same way as most Django packages.

Data Privacy

The main advantage of Jet Admin’s architecture is that absolutely no data transits or crosses our servers. The user accesses application data directly from the client and Jet Admin is just deployed as a service to display and interact with the data.
With Jet Admin, your data are transferred directly from your application to your browser while remaining invisible to our servers.

User Authentication

When a user logs in to Jet Admin he receives a User Token generated by api.jetadmin.io. Jet Admin UI settings are stored on the api.jetadmin.io and your Project Data is stored on Your Web App server.
So the user browser can send the following requests:
  • to get or update UI settings user browser sends requests to api.jetadmin.io and passes an HTTP Authorization Header containing the User Token. Because api.jetadmin.io is an issuer of this token - it can verify it.
  • to get or update Project Data user browser sends requests to the Jet Bridge App (open source) installed on Your Server and passes the same HTTP Authorization Header containing the User Token. Jet Bridge App performs requests to the endpoint and passes the received User Token to verify if it's valid and if the user has enough permissions. Also, the Jet Bridge App sends its Project Token to all api.jetadmin.io endpoints which are described below.

Jet Bridge Authentication

For Jet Bridge App to be able to communicate with api.jetadmin.io it obtains its unique Project Token which will be used to authenticate all requests to api.jetadmin.io. This token is generated by making a call to api.jetadmin.io once on Jet Bridge App is installed and saved in Your Database.
